    It appears Nesta has not been chosen in Lazio's UEFA Cup list so he will be going somewhere outside of Rome. Will it be Milan?

    Well, it appeared Juve were still in talks with Lazio but with them signing Di Vaio I don't think they have the cash to buy Nesta. And I don't think Lazio will go for the Di Vaio plus cash rumour that is circulating. Lazio need cash and Milan is offereing cash only, it appears.

    I think Lazio will sqeeze as much as they can out of Milan. The deadline for CL registration is tomorrow and they know Milan will come with their best offer tomorrow at 11 PM. All in all I think Lazio will accept Milan's offer but we still haven't heard what Nesta feels. He could still want to stay at Lazio.

    that is not an issue: Nesta has been prepared for a move all summer and is ready to accept any italian club for the good of Lazio's finance

    Finally, we have addressed the back line situation!!!!

    I am absolutely thrilled over this move. The one glaring issue was strength along the back, and Nesta is the best answer.

    I feel very, very good about this upcoming season!
