Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Talks heated up over the weekend between Massimo Moratti and Erick Thohir about the Indonesian businessman purchasing a majority ownership of Inter Milan. As it stands, the negotiations are inconclusive with the latest reports being Thohir taking a minority ownership. Mike Whittaker at ESPN FC asks if Thohir and his vision for soccer is a good fit for Inter.

The Stevan Jovetic rumors keep swirling with Juventus in the middle of them. Danny Penza at Black and White and Read All Over takes a look at the state of play and expresses some frustration at The Old Lady’s inability to land a good striker early in the transfer window.

The Guardian’s Paolo Bandini is one of the English-speaking world’s better soccer writers and he has finally released his awards for the 2012-2013 Serie A season. Make sure you have at least 20 minutes to read this column, as it is chock full of good jokes and analysis.

Over the weekend the news broke that Massimiliano Allegri was to retain his position at AC Milan. The Italian press, always good for a laugh, had a field day with the alleged meetings back and forth between the manager and Silvio Berlusconi. This morning, Corriere dello Sport took a different tact with their headline,  “Allegri stays at Milan. Roma humiliated.” Check out an editorial on the entire situation by the editor in Italian here.

Finally, the table for the 2013-2014 Serie A season is set as Livorno beat Empoli 1-0 on Sunday in the Serie B promotion playoffs. You can read a match report here.


Transfer Rumour of the Day: Forza Italian Football are reporting that Napoli and Fiorentina are in for Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez, who is frustrated at being the backup striker for the German power and is looking for a move. The idea of Gomez moving isn’t crazy, but from going from the world’s best team to possibly a team in the Europa League may be a drop too far.
