A World Cup winner is on his way to the premier league! It’s Tottenham and Newcastle who are in the hunt for him and if you’re racking your brain as to who it is, the player didn’t play for Spain.
In fact he helped Italy win the World Cup back in 2006. Mauro Camoranesi is the man, he now plays his trade in Germany for VFB Stuttgart who are finding life tough this season in the Bundesliga.
He had 8 very successful years at Juventus an he was Italy’s first choice right midfielder for some time achieving 55 caps and scoring five goals.
Now at 34 years-old he’s coming to the end of his career, he’s a player who’s renowned for his ability to beat a player and now he seems to have lost his spark. So why do these two premier league sides want him?…………………………………I haven’t a clue to be honest.
Tottenham have Aaron Lennon and co to play out on the right and Newcastle have Wayne Routledge, and Joey Barton has been playing there. Also young Dan Gosling can when he’s back to full fitness. Maybe both teams could do with a right midfielder but Camoranesi has clearly not hit it off in Germany and that’s a fact.
The pace of the premier league as differs from the Bundesliga and most definitely the way the game is played in Italy. This possible transfer shocks me as I feel he’s better off playing at a lower Italian club where he can finish his career.
I’m not doubting what a quality player Camoranesi was but he is a ‘has been’ and if either club does sign him I’m sure there will be a lot of unhappy fans.
