Posted on | August 4, 2010 | No Comments

Genoa have manage to capture one of the most wanted Portuguese by signing Miguel Veloso from Sporting Lisabon.
Veloso was in the attention of the big Serie A and Premier League clubs since last summer but no team has made a concrete move until now.
The transfer sum is supposed to be around €9millions and 20% from the profit of eventually next sale. There are reports claiming that the 24 years old midfielder has signed a 4 years contract at Genoa.

The player admitted that  the financial part was not that important as the opportunity to play in a better league.

Veloso played 94 games for Genoa and made 14 appearances for his national team. By bringing Veloso to the club Genoa will try to fill the void left by Thiago Motta who left for Inter Milan last summer.

Also there are rumors that Shalke wing back Rafinha will join the team. Gasperini was looking also for a good full-back and Rafinha is the  best option around.

Rafinha was always in the starting line-up for Shalke since his arrival from Coritiba in 2005.
