Nervous days ahead for Genoa

The start of the transfer season poses some nervous days for Rossoblu supporters with Diego Milito rumoured to being the subject of Inter Milan and Juventus' affections. Il Principe has carried Genoa offensively with twelve strikes in the first half of the clubs electrifying campaign that have seen them rise to sixth in the table. With offers from Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus said to be waiting in the wings, it undeniable fact that the sharpshooter could be on his way out.

While terms of a possible deal are completely unsubstantiated and highly speculative, the most publicized entry to the market comes for José Mourinho's Inter Milan with an apparent robust offer that would include the likes of Victor Obinna, Francesco Bolzoni, Mario Balotelli and Nicolás Burdisso. With the Nerazzurri holding down the top spot in Serie A with a hefty six-point lead, the self-proclaimed special one is looking to secure the top scoring combination in the league with Zlatan Ibrahimović and Diego Milito pairing-up as well as deal with the complete lack of production of ex-Porto man Ricardo Quaresma. Equally on the bidding front is Juventus who are nestled in second and more than aware, Diego Milito could put them over the edge. Throughout the entire lead-up to this, Genoa's President Enrico Preziosi has insisted he is staying at the club regardless of the offer.
