Good morning, my friends!   A super sunny morning with the headlines confirming Italy defeated Uruguay in the friendly game with a 3-0.   A  headline grabbing my attention is the new contract for Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri who is expected to sign a new one for 7 millions plus 1 bonus per season for 3 years !!

Here are the front pages from the Italian newspapers La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and Tutto Sport, Thursday 8 June 2017.

The headlines on Serie A transfer market news including the possible signing of Torino forward Andrea Bellotti to AC Milan…. though, nothing sure yet……  Apparently, the biggest signing seems to be Belotti.   Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, not moving to Inter, it seems he will get a better contract to remain with Roma.

Good morning, my friends! How are you?   It’s a great day because Italy plays against San Marino today.

Here are the front pages from the Italian newspapers La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and Tutto Sport, Wednesday 31 May 2017.

Italian Serie A transfer market news making the headlines including the mysterious about Kessie on-going medical tests and still not passing them.  I am happy to know that Coach Maurizio Sarri will continue to lead Napoli as he considers his work is not done yet.   Sure, Sarri would like to win at least the Scudetto.  As for the Champions League Final, what do we know…. Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane considers Argentinean forward Paulo Dybala the number one danger, more than Gonzalo Higuain.   Your take?
