Roma Rumor Mongering:Gilardino to Roma?

Another day, another set of rumors, the juiciest of which might see Roma and Genoa swap Marco Borriello for Alberto Gilardino.

Claudio Villa

With Italy losing in penalties to Spain, and suffering the indignity of a third place match against Uruguay, our attention turns squarely back to Roma. Today's batch of rumors deals with Julios and Gilas...

Fiorentina to fight for Julio Cesar
Julio the next Giallorossi keeper? Not so fast, says Fiorentina. Roma's desperate search for a steady employee between the sticks continues, as The Viola are keen to swoop in on Julio Cesar.

Gilardino heading to Roma?
We all know what Marco Borriello brings to Roma, goals and gals, but we might have to settle for Gilardino instead. The Italy international, fresh off a 13 goal campaign, might be swapped for Borriello, presumably to serve as a mentor/backup for Destro.

Manchester City seek Osvaldo to replace Tevez
With Carlos "Captain Caveman" Tevez heading to Juve, the Citizens of Manchester are looking for a replacement, an Italian-Argentine type of replacement, our dearly beloved, Pablo Osvaldo.

Sampdoria Deny Interest in Signing Torosidis
Depending on what formation Rudi rolls out in Roma next year, full and or wingback could be crucial, either of which Torosidis could admirably fill. I say admirably and not outstandingly, so whether or not losing him to Sampdoria would be considered tragic is a matter of personal opinion

Palermo Confirm AS Roma Interest in Viviano & Hernandez
Doesn't it always seem that Roma is connected to Abel Hernandez? This can't just be me, right? Well he is again, this time paired with Viviano. Although the Palermo board is denying any direct approaches from Roma....yet. Abel is young and talented, but injury prone, so file this away in your speculative folder...its on the T drive.

No Roma Offer for Wallace
Wallace may yet be a Roma player, but it looks like his short term plans will keep him in London.

Castan Back to Brazil?
With Benatia seemingly all but a Roma player, Castan might find himself out of the starting XI and back in his homeland. Somehow I doubt this will come to fruition, but there are seemingly three men available for only two jobs.

El Shaarawy exchange-Jovetic?
Not Roma related at all, unfortunately, but if you're a fan of Serie A, and I presume you are, you should want young stars like these to stay on the peninsula. Italy will need all the help it can get to back that last Champions League spot.
