Yanga-Mbiwa moves to Roma
French defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, 25, has sealed a season-long loan move to Roma from Newcastle, the Italian club have announced. Yanga-Mbiwa arrived at Rome's Fiumicino Airport on Monday to undergo a medical and finalise the deal.
"An agreement has been signed with Newcastle United to acquire the player Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa on a temporary basis, until June 30, 2015, for a payment of €1.25m," a statement on Roma's website confirmed on Monday evening. "The agreement also includes the option to buy the player outright, from the 2015/2016 season, for a total value of €6.9m."
Micah Richards joins Fiorentina on season-long loan
Manchester City defender Micah Richards has joined Fiorentina until the end of the season. As part of the agreement, Fiorentina will hold an option to make Richards' move permanent next summer. Richards, City's longest-serving player, has made 245 appearances since making his debut in October 2005, scoring 10 goals. A succession of injuries saw the the 26-year-old gradually fall behind Pablo Zabaleta in the first-team pecking order and the arrival of Bacary Sagna meant Pellegrini had three top-class right-backs at his disposal this season.
Saviola heads to Hellas Verona
Verona have announced the signing of veteran Argentina forward Javier Saviola from Olympiacos. The terms of the deal were not announced by either club. Saviola, 32, began his career at River Plate, where an impressive goalscoring record caught the attention of Barcelona. He initially impressed, scoring 17 goals in his first season, but gradually slipped down the pecking order and was sent out on loan to Monaco and Sevilla, before signing for Barca's bitter rivals Real Madrid in 2007. That move never worked out, and he has since played for Benfica, Malaga and last season Olympiacos, where he scored 12 goals in 26 league appearances.
Biabiany's move to Milan collapses
AC Milan have failed to sign Parma winger Jonathan Biabiany as defender Cristian Zaccardo doesn't want to return to the Crociati. It was widely reported that the Frenchman had arrived in Milan to sign the contract, a deal which would've seen the Rossoneri pay €5m plus the defender. According to reports, Zaccardo does not want to return to Parma thus meaning that Milan's move to land Biabiany has collapsed.
Van Ginkel moves to Milan
Chelsea youngster Marco van Ginkel has joined AC Milan on a season-long loan deal. The Dutch star has had his promising career held up by a knee injury and he has been sent off to Italy for a season to rediscover his fitness and form. Initially the deep-lying midfielder rejected the move but manager Jose Mourinho convinced him it would be the best thing for his career. Milan will pay around €0.5m for the short-term switch but that figure will drop if they provide the youngster with upward of 20 matches.
Biabiany joins Milan
AC Milan have secured their third new signing in three days with Jonathan Biabiany arriving from Parma. The 26-year-old could make his debut against ex-club Parma on Sept. 15 when the Rossoneri travel to the Stadio Ennio Tardini. The French winger's arrival follows that of Fernando Torres and Marco van Ginkel on loan from Chelsea.
Kurtic signs for Fiorentina
Fiorentina have signed Slovenian midfielder Jasmin Kurtic from U.S. Sassuolo. Born in Crnomelj, Slovenia on 10 January 1989, Kurtic made 36 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo and Torino last season. The 25-year-old Slovenia international has 17 caps to his name.
Roma to sign Yanga-Mbiwa on loan
Newcastle United's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has arrived in Italy to sign for AS Roma. The 25-year-old defender, set to sign on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move, was pictured at leaving a Rome airport this afternoon. Yanga-Mbiwa, sidelined with an ankle problem, has found first-team opportunities hard to come at United by over the past 18 months.
David Lopez moves to Napoili
Defensive midfielder David Lopez has made the move to Napoli from Espanyol after completing a medical and putting pen to paper on a five-year deal at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday. Rafa Benitez's side agreed undisclosed terms for the 24-year-old on Saturday, but they have now formally confirmed Lopez as a Napoli player.
Torres to join Milan on two-year loan
Chelsea has agreed terms with AC Milan for striker Fernando Torres to join the Serie A club in a two-year loan deal. The Premier League club and Milan announced the agreement on their websites Friday, adding that "the move is now subject to Fernando agreeing personal terms with AC Milan and passing a medical examination."
Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool in January 2011 for what was then a British-record fee of 50 million pounds, but has struggled to command a regular starting place for the London club. Though he has made less of an impact at club level, Torres was a key member of the Spain squad which dominated the game until the recent World Cup in Brazil.
Manolas completes Roma deal
Roma have completed the signing of Kostas Manolas from Olympiacos for €13m. The Greece international has signed a five-year contract with the Serie A outfit and will replace Mehdi Benatia following the Moroccan defender's permanent move to Bayern. The 23-year-old centre-back played four games at the World Cup for Greece this summer. He made 25 league appearances last season and scored three goals while he also featured in seven Champions League games for the Piraeus-based club.
Palermo complete double signing
Palermo have signed centre-back Souleymane Bamba and full-back Emerson Palmieri. Bamba, an Ivory Coast international, has signed a three-year deal having most recently played for Trabzonspor. The 29-year-old started his career at Paris Saint-Germain and has gone on to represent Dunfermline Athletic, Hibernian and Leicester City.
Palmieri has risen through the ranks at Santos and broke into the Brazilian outfit's first team in January 2012. The 20-year-old has penned an initial loan deal with Palermo retaining the right to make the move permanent.
