It looks as though Juventus isn't done selling players after all. According to Football Italia, French Champion Lyon is readying a bid for Juve pair David Trezeguet and Mauro Camoranesi. Even though the disgraced former Italian champions have reiterated time and again that they will not be selling more players, Lyon is reportedly putting $40 million on the table for both playersa not insignificant sum for a pair of players approaching 30. Lyon certainly has the money, after Mahamadou Diarra's $32 million transfer to Real Madrid this weekend. Trezeguet has admitted that his future with Juventus is uncertain, but he may stay if the club offers him a contract extension worth $8 million a year. Camoranesi, meanwhile, has stated his intention to leave the Turin club, with Valencia in Spain his first choice. Club officials insist that both will be staying, but a firm decision is expected after Juventus' civil appeal to the TAR Lazio court has been sorted out. As ever, the club is looking to be reinstated into Serie A. Meanwhile, the fate of other Juve players is still being sorted out. Fiorentina is close to securing a loan deal for fullback Jonathan Zebina, whom the Florence club would have the option to buy for $4.5 million next summer. Siena, one of the smallest clubs in Serie A, has just completed the signing of Juve reserves Andrea Masiello and Giovanni Bartolucci. Read the original story...
