Thursday Transfer Gossip

First off, PSV Eindhoven have signed Brazilian under-20 international goalkeeper Cassio Ramos from Gremio. Sky Sports report that PSV fought off competition from Benfica to land the keeper.

Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has said he is willing to wait for a year to sign Carlos Tevez if his transfer hasn't been resolved by the close of the August transfer window. The Daily Mirror quote Ferguson as saying "I would imagine it will be done before the deadline, but we would wait for him anyway if we have to. We've gone so far now, there's no point stepping back."

Recreativo have boosted their ranks with the signing of two South American players on loan for next season. Marca (Spanish link) report that Jose Maria Calvo will join the Spanish side from Boca Juniors, with the option of a permanent purchase at the end of the season. Uruguayan under-20 defender Martin Caceres will join from Villarreal, but will return to the El Madrigal at the end of the season.

Finally, having impressed at the under-20 World Cup, Napoli are thought to be interested in Boca Juniors midfielder Ever Banega. Tutto Mercato Web (Italian link) report that Boca have turned down the Italian side's initial approach and that a deal looks unlikely at the moment.
