Destro Destined for Russia!

Mattia Destro has been announced as the fourth signing for Rubin Kazan. Destro signed for an outstanding £11.5 million, and will be used as the main striker to replace Dyadyun, with Forlan and Fierro rotating on the bench.

Destro signed for Genoa the season before for half the value paid, but a successful loan spell at Roma led to Andrei capturing the superstar striker. The striker will receive around £60,000 a week, becoming one of the biggest earners at the club.

It is unlike Kanchelskis to spend a lot on one player, but with the departure of Dyadyun drawing closer and closer, a key striker was needed as a replacement.

Andrei Kanchelskis also announced four departures from the club. Oleg Kuzmin and Vitaly Kaleshin have both been released, Alexandr Orekhov joined Ural for £1 million, and Rubin-2 gained Evgeny Cheremisin on loan for the season.
Great signing Devil :)
nice signing, nice post to include former club, value, and loan spell makes the story more realistic and nice to read, loving it, keep it up!
Fantastic signing. He'll be the one to fire you to more glory this season.
Blue: Thanks Ben ;)

Jynx: I try to include it as much as possible. I prefer writing more realistic stories, so always helps. :P

Gashead: Thanks, and I really hope so. I'm unsure what he's like, but a few people suggested him and stats look great, so should be good to see what he turns out like.
Great signing. He will be a real beast for Kazan!

Rodic's Road to Rubin

Rubin Kazan haven't stopped in the transfer market yet! Milan Rodic has been announced at the next signing by Kanchelskis. However, this signing has shocked many, with young Rodic having previously played for big rivals Zenit.

Milan Rodic signed for just £475,000 and the left back will be used as back up to Cristian Ansaldi. Many saw the depth of the defence as minimal in the last year, so the move to buy a defender was always on the cards.

The Serbian signed for Zenit in 2012/2013 for an undisclosed fee, having played in the Serbian league beforehand for mnay years. Milan only managed to play for Zenit once, but it is believed he will play more in Kazan.

Milan Rodic signed a 4 year contract with the club, getting £6,500 p/week.
Great signings mate!
Great update once again :D
Another good signing Devil :)
Jeremy: Thanks. :P Need to improve the squad depth big time!

Alex: Oh Alex, you're so kind, stop it. ;)

Blue: Expect just one or two more to get the squad done, as a few more have been sold. ;)
Good signing. Always good to add depth to your squad.

Digne: "I Want To Leave"

Lucas Digne has shocked the football world today by announcing his desire to leave French club Lille once his loan spell at Anderlecht finishes at the end of the season. Digne has become a rising star lately, featuring regularly for the French Under 21 National Side, in which he also grabbed a goal as a left back.

Although Lucas has played for Lille for many years, but has only featured 22 times since 2009, he has been tipped as one of the next big stars - and a possible future candidate for the role of left back in the French National Side. After a fairly successful loan spell in 2012 at Belgian side Anderlecht, Digne asked for the local to be extended, and was allowed to stay for another year.

Digne has said that although he has enjoyed his time in Belgium, he wouldn't like a permanent move there. Digne has also said his lack of playing time for Lille has made him want a change. Many teams are linked with the youngster, including teams such as Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Rubin Kazan and FC Barcelona.

Lucas Digne is currently valued at £1.4 million, but any possible move could cost up to and including £10 million. Kanchelskis has previously expressed his interest in Digne, but the outcome of his future is unknown after the recent arrival of Milan Rodic.
