    Can you trust Tuttosport as Gazzetta dello sport, or is it a rubbish sport paper? A lot of rumours for an injured player

  2. Tuttosport is rubbish..
    I used to buy it sometimes since it also writes about Torino FC (Tuttosport is a paper from Torino), but they always invent something!
    According to them, juventus should buy 3-4 champions each time!
    but it never happens…
    La gazzetta dello sport is better even though they only write about inter, milan, juventus and national team and barely something about the other teams (let alone torino fc!!)
    anyway lately I noticed many Bayer04 players linked to other teams…
    Kiessling, Vidal, Barnetta… who will play next year??

  3. I thought so 😉 They had quite a few wild speculations last year, I think Diego and Dzeko were linked with us 🙂

    After many summers keeping our squad together, the time has to come that 1 or 2 players leave us. Hopefully it will be a positive business with a lot of money coming in to reinvest in decent substitutes.

    Völler said that they are interested in extending Vidal’s contract (till 2012) but nothing has happened yet. That is not positive, we don’t wait too long.
    Barnetta is every summer on the list to leave us, I think this time it could be true (only this summer we would receive money)

    About Kiessling I am not sure, especially after he has extended his contract last year till 2015 saying that he and his family feel very well in Leverkusen.

    It will depend also in which direction our tactical formation will go. If we start playing regularly with one striker, then three true top-class strikers in the squad are unlikely. Schürrle can play both left midfield and striker. So him and two true top striker would be okay. As he is flexible.

    But Kiessling under Skibbe played also right midfield (with little success).
    Barnetta and Kiessling surely have clauses in their contract to leave for a fixed amount.
