Adrian Mutu, the Romanian striker who used to play for Chelsea has denied the allegation that he turned up drunk for his visa at the Indian Embassy located in Bucharest, the capital of Romania.
In the month of September, Mutu signed a three month contract with the team Pune City FC playing in the Indian Super League. It is feared that he’ll not be able to play for his team in his team’s first match in the competition which is against Delhi Dynamos because he is having troubles getting his visa. He will play as a striker for Pune City FC.
Gazzetta dello Sport, an Italian Newspaper said that one could tell that Mutu was drunk just by looking at him when he visited the embassy. The embassy staff asked him to leave and said that he could come back when he was sober. Mutu denied that the event ever happened and posted in Twitter that the whole thing is a lie and said that he’s astonished at Gazzetta dello Sport, a reputed newspaper publishing a story without properly verifying it, along with an image of his visa. The Indian Embassy also said that no such incident took place. Indian first secretary to Romania, Political & Consular, Arun Kumar Sharma said that the reported story is a false one and further added that Mutu had some problems of very insignificant nature with his documents which was solved within a very short time.
Mutu was kicked out of Chelsea in the October of 2004 after tests conclusively proved that he used Cocaine. He was also initially banned for nine months after he failed a doping test when he was playing for Fiorentina but later on his ban was reduced three months. Adrian Mutu was banned from the Romanian National football team in the year 2011 along with one of his teammates after both of them were found to be drinking when they were supposed to be playing for the team which was competing against San Marino.

The Colombian defender Juan Cuadrado has been one of the standout players of the World Cup and even before the worldwide competition had initiated, he already had attracted the attention of top clubs around the globe and now Fiorentina will have their work cut out trying to keep the Colombian star in the club.
“We will do everything possible to keep hold of Cuadrado, It is a difficult situation, but my first aim is to keep Cuadrado in Florence. There are no firm price-tags set, nor have I spoken to any clubs. I must admit, Cuadrado’s performances and visibility in the World Cup are not helping.” The co-owner of FIorentina, Andrea Della Valle stated.
Cuadrado has a contract with Fiorentina which runs up until 2017 but after a series of impressive performances by the 26 year old defender in the World Cup might tempt clubs on launching offers that could be just too hard to resist.
The defender of Fiorentina revealed to the public that he is only trying to focus on the World Cup and when it end, he will then discuss about whether or not to remain with the Italian club or join another club.
“I reiterate that my family and I are happy in Florence. I will only think about my future after the World Cup. Right now I’m living in a dream. This is just the beginning as we have not seen the real Cuadrado.” Cuadrado said.
Recently Barcelona and Bayern Munich are some of the football destinations that have been linked with the Colombian defender and both of those clubs are able to not only meet with the €40m buy-out clause that Fiorentina placed on Cuadrado but it will ultimately depend if the star of Colombia decides to leave the Italian club.

Inter Milan wrapped up the previous season by sealing the 5th spot of the Italian League, Serie A and it has already been confirmed that Walter Mazzarri will continue being in charge of Inter Milan for the next campaign. Mazzarri and the president of Inter Milan, Erick Thohir want to improve the squad hoping that it can allow them fight against some of the best teams of Europe in the Champions League which is why they are expected to have a busy transfer window with a large number of players in the radar of the Italian club.
Erick Lamela is one of the priority players of Mazzarri as the 22 years old Argentine player enjoyed going through impressive back to back seasons when he played for As.Roma and attracted the attention of Tottenham as they were willing to pay €25.8 million for Lamela but ever since he made his move to the Premier League club, he suffered a dramatic loss of form as well as suffering from injuries which disabled him from performing at his peak.
Mazzarri is now seeing this as a chance for him to sign Erick Lamela and restore his former glory days but he will have to race to secure the services of the Argentinean winger as he is also in the wish-list of other clubs such as: Fiorentina and Napoli.
Lamela was brought into Tottenham at White Hart Lane as a way to fill in the boots of Gareth Bale who was already transferred to Real Madrid. His disappointing debut season with Tottenham was one of the main reasons on why Alejandro Sabella decided not to put him in his 23-man squad for the 2014 World Cup.
Javier Hernandez and Tom Ince are some of the other players which have been heavily linked with Inter Milan. Mazzarri wants to rejuvenate the squad by bringing in young players while some of the veteran and senior players of the squad are already seeing their way out such as Javier Zanetti.
