Like all other journalists who dabble in transfer rumormongering, Gianluca Di Marzio gets a fair share wrong. I'm still waiting for that magical bid from Wolfsburg for Fernando Torres, Gianluca!
But sometimes he gets them right, so here we are with another story from this summer's Tancredi.
"The rumors are confirmed, Marin likes to Fiorentina. That is working to bring in a purple jewel importantly, with European experience."

It's unclear whether La Viola are looking at a loan or a permanent transfer for the perpetually injured Marko Marin, inventor of the airborne hamstring strain, but I would not be surprised if this was in some way a contingency plan for them in case Juan Cuadrado leaves, as expected, at some point in the next few weeks.
One thing that is abundantly clear is that Chelsea are ready to move on without the 25-year-old Marin and have been for some time even though he's still got three years left on his contract. Oh well.
