Roberto Carlos to Fenerbahce Nearly Complete
The transfer of Real Madrid defender Roberto Carlos to Fenerbahce is nearly complete, all reports indicate. Carlos has rejected a bid by Real to stay with the club, and he reportedly has also spurned Chelsea resulting in their efforts to now sign Ashley Cole. Reports from Istanbul indicated that Carlos will sign a contract worth between $6 million and $10 million. Carlos will join Stephen Appiah in the backfield to make up one of the strongest defensive formations in Europe. Fenerbahce has not officially confirmed the signing yet, but expect an announcement by mid-week. As soon as more information becomes available, I will post it here.
