Roma, Juventus go for £12M Liverpool striker Bellamy

Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy will be offered a move to Serie A this summer.
The Daily Mail says Juventus and Roma will test Bellamy's determination to stay at Liverpool.
The Wales striker, 28 next month, believes he can still be a success at Anfield even though boss Rafa Benitez appears to be pointing him towards the exit. Bellamy did not play in last month's Champions League Final and Liverpool will listen to offers of £10million. Juventus are rebuilding for a return to Serie A under 'Tinkerman' Claudio Ranieri and have made the former Newcastle and Blackburn player a target.
Despite his reluctance to leave, Bellamy could be tempted by the chance to follow in the footsteps of boyhood idol Ian Rush, who left for Turin 20 years ago.
A swap deal is being mooted which would see Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy move to Itay's Roma this summer.
The Daily Mail says Roma are keen to bring the £10 million-rated Wales international to the Italian capital.
While Liverpool's asking price is out of Roma's range, a swap deal has been mooted with Reds boss Rafa Benitez keen on Brazilian winger Amantino Mancini.

Wow! It will be great to get Mancini! He is a really skilful player. But i'm sad to see Bellamy go. But then, if you can't get 20 goals a season as a striker, then perhaps it's time to reconsider their position at a club as big as Liverpool!


Bellamy is good but you're right that he does not score much goals. But seems like Bellamy is much liked by the Italian clubs where maybe they are impressed with his goal with Barca. He! He!
