Roma midfielder Jeremy Menez is widely expected to leave the club following the clash with coach Vincenzo Montella.
The France international has lost his place in the side after the arrival of former Roma striker and he was tipped to leave the club in search for the first team football.
The situation only got worse when Menez clashed with Montella on Wednesday, with Il Corriere dello Sport reporting that the Roma coach spent around 15 minutes lecturing the midfielder.
That seems to have been the last drop for Menez, who is now looking to leave the club at the end of the season.
Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have been keeping tabs on the 23-year-old and they have been on alert following the latest developments.
The Premiership giants are likely to jump at the opportunity to sign Menez on a cut-back price in the summer, meaning that we could expect a real bidding war for the player’s services.
The Frenchman has shown a lot of potential after the slow start to his career at Roma, with his versatility gaining him a wide acclaim among top European clubs.
Trezeguet hints at return to France
Hercules striker David Trezeguet admits he could return to France at the end of the season.
The former Juventus striker was close to joining Lyon last summer, but he eventually opted for La Liga side Hercules.
With los Herculanos likely to return to Segunda, the former France international is expected to leave the club at the end of the season even though his contract at Hercules does not expire until June 2012.
Trezeguet admits he could return to French Ligue 1 after playing abroad for 11 years.
“A return to France is possible. Emotionally, I love Monaco. This is my club,” Trezeguet told L’Equipe.
“But other teams have more ambition, like Lyon.
”This is a club that is ambitious and seek to win titles. That’s what I want to find.”
Trezeguet also referred to the projects of Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain as “interesting”, showing that he has yet to decide where he wants to continue his career.
The former Juventus striker hasn’t forgotten to score goals, having bagged 11 in 26 La Liga games this season and there is no doubt he is still capable of playing at a very high level.
Aquilani pledges his future to Juve
Alberto Aquilani has revealed he wants to remain at Juventus and play a part in club’s quest for trophies.
The Italy international is currently on loan from Liverpool, with Juventus having the option to make the transfer permanent for €16 million.
The Bianconeri are, however, hoping to get him for less than the agreed fee, which is the main reason why the transfer has yet to be completed.
“My desire is to stay in Turin for a long time, to win a lot and I mean a lot,” Aquilani told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I don’t know how the negotiations are going with Liverpool, but the situation is simple. It all depends on Juve, if they want me then they can buy me.”
“I know that the results make it difficult to think like this, but the Juve project is a winning one.
“I live it everyday and I have no doubts. The foundations are solid and we are not that far behind the best teams.
“I want to be a protagonist of the new winning cycle which is on the way – I’m sure of it.”
Juventus are reportedly hot on the trail of Andrea Pirlo and Aquilani admits it would be great to play alongside his Italy teammate.
“It would be fantastic to have Pirlo here. He’s a top player, a great at international level. Playing alongside him would help me to grow even more.”
