Weekend Transfer Gossip

Not much Latin American transfer activity or even rumours this weekend. In fact, pretty much everything comes from one publication.

First off, Barcelona have offered 16million Euros for Zaragoza defender Gabriel Milito. Marca (Spanish link) report that Zaragoza are holding out for nearer 18million for the talented Argentine.

Real Murcia are close to adding Pablo Garcia to the signing of fellow Uruguayan Marco Regueiro according to Marca (Spanish link).

New Real Madrid manager Bernd Schuster has told the Madrid board that Brazilian full back Cicinho is not to be sold to Roma. Marca (Spanish link) report that the Italian side are now likely to turn their attention to Julio Belletti of Barcelona in search of a solution to their right back problems.

In our final Marca (Spanish link) story, they report that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is only willing to discuss a move for Cesc Fabregas to Real Madrid if Brazilian wonderkid Robinho goes the other way as part of the deal. It seems unlikely, however, that Bernd Schuster would be content to sanction such a move.

Finally, the Gazetta Della Sport (Italian link) report, amongst other things, that Liverpool are interested in signing Roma's Brazilian midfielder Amantino Mancini, after struggling to agree deals for Portugese wingers Simao Sabrosa and Ricardo Quaresma with their respective clubs.
