Several clubs want Verratti – agent

The midfielder has been linked with the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid and his representative says that several clubs are interested in his client

Donato Di Campli, the agent of Marco Verratti, has confirmed that several clubs are interested in the Paris Saint-Germain star’s services.

The highly-rated Italy international moved to the French capital last summer from Pescara, snubbing interest from Juventus in the process.

However, he has consistently been linked with a move to his homeland or to Real Madrid, but Di Campli says he is eager to stay put.

“He wants to stay in Paris and be treated like all the other players,” Di Campli told Le10Sport.

“Of course, if he were to leave, then he’d be spoilt for choice. Clubs are lining up ready to pay any sum in order to sign him.”

The agent went on to confirm that talks over a potential contract renewal for the 20-year-old have yet to start.

“It has not been decided yet and it will take time because you have to negotiate, but this is not meant to be blackmailing to anyone.”

Official: Trezeguet joins Newell’s Old Boys

The 35-year-old striker arrives at the Copa Libertadores semi-finalists on a one-year loan from River Plate

Newell’s Old Boys have agreed to sign David Trezeguet from River Plate on a year-long loan deal.

The former France international, 35, who scored three goals in 16 appearances in an injury-plagued season for River, is already targeting a major milestone at his new club.

“It’s a very special day for me, this signing brings me great joy,” he told reporters.

“I want to thank all the clubs in Primera B Nacional and B Metropolitana who were interested in me, but I decided on Newell’s because it is a club that is doing well and is well respected in the world.

“I would like to leave something with the club and personally I would like to reach 300 goals in my career. Moreover, with Newell’s I will have the opportunity to play in the Copa Libertadores tournament.

“When River Plate decided I was not going to be part of their project it was a delicate moment of reflection and one difficult day for me.”

Newell’s club president Guillermo Lorente also had his say on the new signing.

He added: “Welcome, King David. I give you the shirt that will allow you to communicate with the public from today on.”

Liverpool manager Rodgers keen to add left-back cover

The Anfield boss was left short of options when he lost Jose Enrique to a hamstring injury in January and is keen to provide cover for the Spaniard before the transfer window shuts

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed he is keen to add a left-back to his squad before the start of the new campaign.

Rodgers lost first-choice option Jose Enrique to a hamstring injury in January and had to use Glen Johnson and Andre Wisdom in the position instead.

And the former Swansea boss feels it is important to bolster his squad and provide cover for the Spaniard before the transfer window shuts.

“There are obviously certain areas of the squad where we’re a bit thinner than others,” Rodgers said.

“We probably need a bit more support – that extra bit of quality – at the top end of the field and that’s something we’ll look out for.

“That’ll be mixed with needing cover in the left-back position – that’s something we’re looking at. It’s not really about numbers, it’s about quality.

“If we can do that over the next number of weeks we’ll be happy.”

The Reds recently made an approach for Chelsea and England left-back Ryan Bertrand, who is Ashley Cole’s understudy at Stamford Bridge.

However, the club dropped their interest upon finding out the 23-year-old would demand a salary package worth more than £60,000-a-week, as exclusively revealed by Goal.

Nevertheless, Bertrand later insisted he would not consider leaving the Blues as he wants to bide his time and become the club’s No.1 left-back.
