SHAKHTAR DONETS NEWS
Shakhtar Donets have finally took the first place in Russian first division, after a great season, which hasnt ended yet but, Shakhtar now are in first place with 68 points, followed by Dynamo Kiev with 45 points.
- "I'm pretty happy with the team, with a goal difference +46 in 26 games, its pretty good remembering the last season when Shakhtar wasnt even in the race for the title".
Last game against Zenit, Shakhtar won the match 1-0 with Leighton Baines goal in the 56th minute. Gareth Bale was later voted Man of the Match, and also Ibrahimovic the top goalscorer this year was injured and will be back tomorrow.
Ibrahimovic will be injured for 2 days.
Next game would be against one of the most famous Russian Club (if not the most) CSKA Moska, the derby of this fixture even through this year CSKA have had some big problems, ranking now on the last place in division with only 16 points.
The match will be played in Luzhniki Stadium and the referee will be Danish International Nicolai Vollquartz.
No players are injured or suspended so both teams can play with their best 11, and for informations the last game between these two clubs has been finishied 1-0 for Shakhtar.
3 Other players has arrived in Donbass Arena after the exchange between Schmelzer - Osvaldo, the deal that has been made between Sevilla and Shakhtar.
The first one is 23 Years old Italian, Mario Balotelli. Italian superstriker has put the pen on the paper and signed a 5 year deal with Shakhtar for 38.4M. He has left Roma due to no manager.
The second one is 20 Years old Brazilian international, Juan Jesus. Shakhtar had in mind to make an offer for Julian Draxler but they couldnt arrive in time, when they arrived in Schalke, Barcelona offer was accepted, so they signed the 20 years old Juan Jesus for about 15M. Juan Jesus is considered as one of the biggest defender talents.
And the third one is Frech international, Jordan Veretourt. EX Schalke player, accepted to move to Donetsk for an amount of 5.5M, He feels very good abouot this and feels great to be in a club full of talents.
Shakhtar Manager feels pretty great for these 4 transfers.
Except Pablo Osvaldo that has left for Sevilla, no sales has happen in Donetsk, even through Mergim Paloja seems very interested to sale some of his players but no decent offers are coming in his way. Due to arrive of Balotelli he is now foreced to sell one of his strikers and the two that can leave in Attacking part are Clint Dempsey for Cash and Demba Ba for a decent offer most likely for a Defensive Midifelder.
Already have offers for Darijo Srna, Baines and Corchia but none of them meets Shakhtar questions so all of them will be rejected.
Shinji Kagawa can be on his way out if there will be any good offer for him, and Selcuk Inan too, most needed are RB/LB's.
