Seedorf shelves transfer talk; City enter the race for Cahill

Seedorf shelves transfer talk

Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf has revealed that he doesn’t want to speculate on his future before this season ends.

The long-serving Dutchman will be out of contract at the end of the season, prompting speculations that he could leave San Siro in the summer.

The 35-year-old has been heavily linked with a summer move to Corinthians, but speaking after he helped Milan record a victory over Fiorentina, the Dutchman reinstated that he was happy at San Siro.

“I am very happy. I am 35 and I have not suffered any major injuries. I am weighing up everything,” Seedorf was quoted as saying.

“I am awaiting an offer from Milan and there are others.

“My focus is the Scudetto, then I will think about the future,”

The mere fact that Milan have yet to offer him a new contract shows that the Rossoneri chiefs are not too keen on keeping the talismanic midfielder at San Siro.

Taking that into account as well as a hefty offer from Corinthians, Seedorf could be tempted into leaving for Brazil, that is unless he receives a proposal from one of the big European clubs.

City enter the race for Cahill

Manchester City are the latest club to have joined the race for Bolton centre-back Gary Cahill, according to The Mirror.

The England international has earned rave reviews for his performances this season and he looks set for big money move in the summer.

Bolton chiefs have already conceded that they may have to sell their most prized asset in order to balance the books.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, his assistant David Pleat and club’s chief scout all watched Cahill in action against West Ham at the weekend.

The mere fact that Mancini opted to watch Cahill rather than check on FA Cup semi-final rivals Manchester United proves that the Italian is really keen on the promising centre-back.

City boss has faced unexpected problems in the heart of defence after Kolo Toure was banned from using drugs, with his replacement Joleon Lescott still not playing to his potential.

Bolton are currently holding out for £20 million, but even if that is something that City can easily match, the Citizens hope to lower the transfer amount by offering Shaun Wright-Phillips and Dedrick Boyata in a swap deal.

Nonetheless, they face a stiff competition from Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Bastos not thinking about Juventus

Lyon midfielder Michel Bastos says he is not thinking about a move to Juventus, amidst speculations linking him with a move to Olimpico.

The Brazilian winger has been the subject of heavy interest from Juventus, with the Bianconeri expected to make a move for the Lyon player in the summer.

The Old Lady is a bit short of quality on the left hand side and they have singled out Bastos as their number one target in the summer transfer window.

The 27-year-old is currently sidelined with a knee injury and he admits that he is currently not thinking about a move to Juventus.

“I don’t want to talk about Juventus at the moment. I’m not thinking about a transfer right now,” Bastos told L’Equipe.

“All I’m thinking about now is returning to full match fitness again. I want to return to action as soon as possible to do my utmost for the team and finish the season on a high.”

Lyon have had a pretty disappointing season this term and they face an uphill battle to clinch Champions League qualification, so nobody would be surprised if Bastos decides to leave the sinking ship and moves to Italy at the end of the season.

Juventus are determined to make a couple of big name signings in the summer and Bastos certainly tops that list.
