– Purple Summer – Fiorentina top of the pre-season friendly table, then Napoli, Palermo and Roma.

– Milan without defence, 2-1 defeat to Valencia. Mistakes in defence, with Diego Lopez making a shaky debut in goal with a fumble and getting beaten at his near post for the second goal. Cristian Zapata at fault for the first goal, and so it remains to be seen who Pippo Inzaghi selects for the season opener against Lazio.

– Massimiliano Allegri: “Juventus growing, new signings only if they are of quality”.

– Falcao wants Juventus, agreement for Jonathan De Guzman-Napoli.

– Europe calls, tomorrow Napoli begin Champions League campaign, Wednesday is Inter.

– Benfica report Juve for Luisao.

– Another blow for Milan, wait for Alessio Cerci.

–  Allegri: “Another two signings, a defender and a forward who can play in a 3-5-2, as well as in a trident”.
–  On Andrea Pirlo and teammates: “There’s never been a problem with Pirlo, Luca Marrone a pleasant surprise, Kingsley Coman is switched on and could become a top player, look out for Vitale too.”
– Antonio Conte: Face to face with Carlo Tavecchio, the new era begins.
– Milan, nightmare defence. Despite summer arrivals, it appears as though the Rossoneri still can’t stop themselves from making mistakes as they fall to a 2-1 pre-season friendly defeat to Valencia on Sunday.
