Thursday Transfer Gossip

First off, Javier Saviola has completed his move on a free transfer to Real Madrid from Barcelona. Marca (Spanish link) report that he will be presented to the media as a Real player on Friday.

Sky Sports report that Daniel Alves is waiting on Chelsea to agree a fee with Sevilla for his services, according to the players agent Jose Rodriguez Baster.

The Sun report that Deportivo La Coruna's Argentine midfielder Aldo Duscher is in England today for a trial with Newcastle United ahead of a possible free transfer move. They lead the article with the typically sensationalist headline: "Big Sam in for Beck butcher".

Barcelona have finally agreed a fee with Real Zaragoza for Argentine defender Gabriel Milito according to Sky Sports. With personal terms having already been agreed for the Copa America, the deal is now pretty much finalised.

The Sun report that both Chelsea and Manchester City are interested in Mexico striker Nero Castillo, who has been on electric form during the Copa America. City apparently tried to sign the player previously when he was sixteen.

Marca (Spanish link) report that Real Madrid may challenge city neighbours Atletico in their bid for Juan Riquelme, provided they cannot sign Cesc Fabregas from Arsenal.

Finally, Ole (Spanish link) report that Estudiantes are looking to replace Betis-bound Mariano Pavone with Osasuna forward Bernando Romeo. They are expected to face competition from San Lorenzo for the signature of the Argentine.
