Rami hints at Valencia exit

The defender continues to be linked with the Mestalla exit door but revealed his current club are determined to retain his services

Adil Rami has admitted to having “desires elsewhere” after hinting at leaving Valencia once again this summer.

The France international has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks and has enhanced his reputation in recent times with his stellar displays for los Che.

But the cash-strapped club remain determined to keep hold of one of their prized assets and though Rami revealed the specific release clause in his contract, the 27-year-old remains unsure whether he will still be at Mestalla or not come the start of next season.

“I have learned a lot in Valencia and Spain. I am here today but that does not mean to say that I do not have desires elsewhere. I read that Valencia pushed me towards the exit, this is totally wrong. I broke my contract with my agent in February,” he told RMC.

“I had a good laugh because on Tuesday I had a meeting with Valencia directors and it is impossible for them to let me go. I have a clause between 10 and 12 million euros so we will see what is best for me moving forward.”

Rami joined Valencia in January 2011 and after spending the remainder of the 2011/12 season on loan at Lille he has become a star performer over the last two seasons, making 74 appearances in the process.

His current deal runs until June 2016.

Cavani eyes 'dream' Real Madrid or Barcelona move

The Uruguay international has spoken about his Liga ambitions but his current employers will pull out all the stops to keep their prized asset

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has admitted a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona would be a “dream”.

The Uruguay international netted 38 goals in 43 appearances for the Partenopei this season as the club finished second in Serie A and booked their place in next season’s Champions League.

It is thought that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is preparing to offer his prized asset a new and improved contract, believed to be as much as 7 million per year, despite the fact his current deal does not expire until 2017.

“As a child, I dreamed of playing at this club [Real Madrid] or Barcelona, but for now I am proud to be in Naples. On my future I cannot say anything, because I still do not know anything,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I am proud to be in Naples, it is one of the most important clubs in Italy.”

Cavani has been strongly linked with Madrid in recent months as well a potential move to Premier League sides Manchester City and Chelsea.

The 26-year-old has scored 104 times in 138 appearances for Napoli and is currently just one strike behind  Diego Maradona, the club’s all-time leading goal scorer.

Suarez 'proud' of rumoured Real Madrid interest

The Liverpool striker, who is contracted until 2016, says constant criticism from journalists is affecting his time in England, hinting it could drive him away from Anfield

Luis Suarez has opened the door to a Liverpool exit after admitting he cannot take constant criticism of his conduct and is proud to be linked with Real Madrid .

As exclusively revealed by Goal earlier on Wednesday, the striker has refused to commit himself to the Anfield outfit despite holding two meetings with the club hierarchy in recent weeks.

Suarez is believed to be a target for Real Madrid as Gonzalo Higuain looks increasingly likely to leave the Liga runners-up during the summer, and the 26-year-old admits such interest in himself and fellow compatriot Edinson Cavani is flattering.

“Saying no to Real Madrid is very difficult,” he told Sport 890 AM.

“I think that’s a reason for Uruguayans to feel proud, but there are no formal offers yet.

“I talked to Brendan Rodgers. He knows what I want and understands my situation.”

Suarez is currently serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic; the incident the latest in a long line of misdemeanours the striker has committed.

Goal revealed in January that the former Ajax man, who is contracted with the club until 2016, was considering his future at Anfield, with Champions League football a long-held desire, and he admitted constant negative press is affecting his time in England.

“I worked too hard to having to continue listening to the criticism I get from English journalists,” he continued.

“I love Liverpool, but I’m not prepared to keep taking all this criticism.

Caballero keen to replace Valdes at Barcelona

The Camp Nou giants are looking for a new shot stopper this summer and the Malaga No.1 says only a “stupid person” would reject them

Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero says he would move to Barcelona in an instant if the opportunity presented itself this summer.

Current Barca No.1 Victor Valdes has announced his intention to leave the Camp Nou giants, with Monaco at the forefront of a queue of clubs vying for his signature.

Caballero, who has impressed throughout this season in La Liga and in his side’s surprise run to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, says the opportunity to replace Valdes would be too good to refuse for any top keeper.

Speaking to Spanish radio show Esports Cope, he said: “If Barcelona called me, I would not hesitate. I would not let the phone ring twice.

“Who would not like to play with these great players? Only a stupid person would say no to Barcelona.

“I hope Valdes can keep on demonstrating that he’s a great goalkeeper wherever he goes on to play next year.”

The shot stopper’s impressive form for Malaga has led to calls for him to receive a chance with Argentina at international level and Caballero says he is confused by his lack of international opportunities to date.

The 31-year-old added: “I really don’t know why I am not in the national team, but I would love to be there again.

“I know Mascherano as we played together in the Olympics. I barely know Messi, I’ve only been with him in some training sessions, but I get on well with everyone in the set-up.”

Malaga currently sit sixth in the table going into the final round of matches, where they face champions Barca – who are a victory away from reaching the 100-point milestone – at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Reina: It would be hard to turn down Barcelona

The 30-year-old goalkeeper is happy at Anfield but says it would be tough to ignore an approach from the Liga champions should they make an offer

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina admits it would be difficult to refuse a move to Barcelona, though he insists he is happy at Anfield.

The 30-year-old has been a reported target for the Catalan club some time and with Victor Valdes believed to be close to joining AS Monaco, a deal could happen this summer.

Speaking at a press conference to reveal his new website, Reina stressed there had been no official approach from the Liga champions, although he confessed it would be tough to turn them down.

“Barcelona is a great club and it is difficult to say no to a club like Barcelona,” he said. “But we are talking about assumptions and I should not do it.

“It would be difficult leave Liverpool. If I do it, [it] is [to] improve and grow as player.

“I have no evidence about Barcelona’s interest in me. I don’t know if the club has spoken with my agent. If he doesn’t say something it is because there isn’t any serious offer on the table.

“I have a contract with Liverpool and I’m very happy in England. At present, I just have one option: stay at Liverpool. Everything else is just talk. There has been no direct contact.”

Reina, who began his career at Camp Nou, has been with the Anfield club since 2005.
