The Italian (Fabio Capello) revealed he tried to persuade Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes to come out of international retirement, but failed.
Not too much surprise here.
Scholes ‘retired’ after he was effectively dropped after the emergence of Lampard and he found himself 4th choice midfielder after Beckham and Gerrard. There’s no doubt he could still have played a role, though, especially after Barry’s injury.

Sorry saga close to an end
The inevitable has finally happened, leaving Tevez free to leave West Ham. The Hammers seem happy with the deal, hoping that the Premier League will now draw a line under the whole shady situation.

[Alex Ferguson] admitted that he has no intention of ending his interest in a player he believes will be a crucial addition to his squad.
Ferguson said: “I would imagine that we can all get things done before the deadline, but we would wait for Tevez anyway if we have to. We’ve gone so far now, there’s no point stepping back.

No Beckham - Large Manchester Utd influence
David Beckham looks unlikely to add to his 94 England caps as the 31 year old was left out of new England coach Steve McClaren’s first England squad.
Winners are West Ham’s Dean Ashton, and a large number of former McClaren players from his time at Manchester Utd.

With Juve effectively relegated for 2 seasons due to their 30 point deduction in Serie B it seems inconceivable that they will be able to hang on to all their players or even loan them out for a year.
Not too many leagues will be able to match the Italian clubs’ salaries, so England will be a likely destination for many who leave.
Here’s a list of transfer speculation of England’s top clubs and who they are targetting.
Alessandro Nesta (Milan), Fabio Cannavaro, Pavel Nedved, Gianluca Zambrotta (Juve);
Patrick Vieira, Pavel Nedved (Juve), Gennaro Gattuso (Milan), Luca Toni (Fiorentina)
Mauro Camoranesi, David Trezeguet (Juve)
Gianluigi Buffon, Lilian Thuram, Patrick Vieira, David Trezeguet (Juve), Filippo Inzaghi (Milan)
Lilian Thuram (Juve), Filippo Inzaghi (Milan)
