Siena Negotiating With Dinamo Over Neto

Luis Neto - Siena

Luis Neto

Siena to Dinamo Kiev?

According to reports coming out of Portugal, Siena is currently negotiating with Dinamo Kiev over the transfer of Luis Neto. The central defender has been a bright spot in Siena’s dismal campaign. The club currently sits at the base of Serie A, and relegation looks likely. Clubs such as Juventus, Napoli, and Roma have been interested in Neto, and a move looks likely. A release clause is set at 16 million euros, but something as low as 6 million may be enough to pry him away from Siena. If he were to move to Dinamo Kiev, he would join up with fellow countryman Miguel Veloso.

Portugal Draw With France in Friendly

The Portuguese Under-20 team drew 3-3 in a goal-filled game in France. France won the UEFA U-19 Championship this last summer, beating the likes of Croatia, Holland , and Spain in the process. That team was obviously no pushover. Many of the players that featured for France in last summer’s triumph played on Thursday. So, the fact that Portugal drew with them, while scoring three goals in the process, speaks wonders for this team. France were leading 2-0 at half-time, thanks to goals from Lacazzete and Bakambu. Portugal came out in the second half raring to go, scoring three goals to make the score 3-2 in favor of Portugal. Those goals were scored by Nelson Oliveira (2) and Alex (1). France scored their equalizer, however, through Grenier. That was how it ended. The Portuguese Under-20 team is currently preparing for next summer’s U-20 World Cup.
