Italian journalist Gian Luca Pasini, who shares his knowledge of volleyball events in Italy on his blog, revealed that a spectacular trade has been on the table.


As Gian Luca Pasini wrote in his blog, the Russian and Italian men’s titleholders wanted to make an exchange of players, and not any players! The Cuban Wilfredo León was supposed to go to Cucine Lube Civitanova, while his compatriot Osmany Juantorena would go in the opposite direction, to Zenit Kazan.

But, according to the same source, Juantorena said no to Kazan team and the idea of a trade was abandoned.

As for León, there are other negotiations open to bring him to Italy. It is unknown if Sir Safety Conad Perguia are still the option to hire Cuban superstar

What a fake news you guys present! Juantorena will never leave Lube and they don’t have money for Leon.

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
