Serie A sides should look to the unwanted players at clubs amongst the Spanish elite in order to recruit well in this summer’s transfer window.
Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all keen to offload some big names this summer, and the likes of Juventus, Napoli and both Milanese clubs should pay close attention in order to bolster their numbers for next campaign.
Business amongst them has so far been minimal, with most clubs keen to wait until after the 2014 World Cup before conducting moves for suitable targets, but their hesitancy could cost them dearly if teams in the Barclays Premier League move first.
La Liga champions Atletico are already set to lose Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Filipe Luis to Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, which has reportedly made defender Joao Miranda consider his future at the Spanish club.
The defender is amongst the finest in world football, and would be a great addition to Juventus with Giorgio Chiellini entering the twilight years of his career and would certainly prove a great partner for Nemanja Vidic at Inter Milan.
His team-mate Tiago is also set to depart, and would be a welcome addition at AC Milan as they prepare for life under new manager Filipo Inzaghi.
Juventus’ interest in Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez is well known, but his flair and pace would make him the perfect fit for Rafael Benitez’s Napoli side.
In a team already boasting Gonzalo Higuain, Marek Hamsik and Lorenzo Insigne, Sanchez would offer a potent threat and would return to Serie A an improved player than the one that departed from Udinese three years ago.
Benitez would be pulling of a major coup if he could secure his services, and could lead to an improved assault on the Scudetto next year.
Luis Enrique has already added Marc-Andre ter Stegan to the ranks as a replacement for the outgoing Victor Valdes, and the Spaniard would be the perfect replacement for Christian Abbiati at Milan.
Rivals Inter would also benefit from his services, with Samir Handanovic still struggling to fill the void left by Julio Cesar’s departure in 2012.
Real Madrid are said to be willing to part ways with German international Sami Khedira, whose physicality and work-rate would make him a perfect signing for many Serie A clubs.
Fiorentina were reported to be most keen, but could face competition from English side Manchester United with new manager Louis van Gaal said to be interested.
Alvaro Morata is expected to tie up a move to Juventus in the near future, as Madrid look to fund a move for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
