Fernando Meira has completed his move from Russian powerhouse Zenit to La Liga strugglers Real Zaragoza. Meira has found playing time very hard to come by at the Russian club, especially upon the arrival of compatriot Bruno Alves. Fernando had been linked with a number of clubs, most notably Juventus, but the moves never materialized. The central defender will now ply his trade in Spain as he attempts to end his career on a high note.
Zenit central-defender, Fernando Meira, who has found playing time hard to come by lately at the Russian club, is currently negotiating with La Liga strugglers, Zaragoza. Meira currently plays alongside fellow Portuguese players, Bruno Alves and Danny, but has not enjoyed as much success as those two at the club. Zaragoza reportedly tried to sign Meira earlier in the season, to no avail. Now, a deal could be completed as early as later this week.
Old transfer news that we thought were buried are starting to come to the surface. Here’s the latest:
Zenit defender Fernando Meira, who has recently fallen out of favor at the club, is reportedly a transfer target for Italian club Lazio. Lazio are looking to build on their positive start to the Serie A this season by reinforcing their defense.
Bayern Munich are after Portuguese right back Bosingwa once again. The German club are looking for an alternative to Lahm, as there are no other players capable of playing right-back.
With the arrival of Jesualdo Ferreira at Panathinaikos, Hugo Almeida has stated that he interested in a possible reunion with Ferreira at the Greek club. Speculation has been high with Almeida’s contract set to expire, and the striker has stated that he is open to the move. The move would have him join fellow Portuguese Daniel Fernandes. Sporting Lisbon and Valencia are also said to be interested.
