Is Fenerbahce Interested in Ze Roberto?
The transfer rumors are heating up quickly, and within the last week names like Roberto Carlos and John Carew have surfaced as being linked with transfers to Fenerbahce. Now you can add Ze Roberto to the list. Turkish media outlet Sabah reports that the Brazilian left winger may be on Fenerbahce's off-season transfer list. Roberto has been a star for Brazil at times, but has also had his share of struggles. He was one of the leaders of the Brazilian World Cup squads in 1998 and 2006, and scored for Brazil vs. Ghana in the previous World Cup. However, Roberto had a tough time with German outfit Bayern Munich, and left the squad to return to Brazil in 2006. Prior to the 2006-2007 season, he signed a one-year deal with Santos FC of Brazil.
As previously reported, Fenerbahce has become a hot name with Brazilian players, due to the signings of Alex de Souza, Edu Dracena, Deivid de Souza, etc. Fenerbahce also has a substantial following in Brazil due to manager Zico; a Brazilian futebol legend.
Stay tuned to see if anything develops on this situation.
