Five reasons Roma can win the Scudetto Serie A 2014/15 season preview is a post from: Just Football
For the past three seasons, Serie A has been held in the increasingly steely grip of an Old Lady bent on making up for time lost after the Calciopoli scandal. Juventus won their first title since returning to the top flight in 2011/12 by four points, increased that gap to nine points in winning a second in 2012/13, before amassing a ridiculous 102 points en route to a third consecutive scudetto last season.
The new Serie A season is kicking-off this weekend, as Chievo Verona host holding champions Juventus on Saturday (Noon ET). Will theOld Ladyretain the title for a fourth consecutive time or will the ever-improving Roma snatch it away? Can Napoli enter the argument and what will Fiorentina, Inter and Milan have to say about it?
Manchester United and Napoli have agreed to a move that will send Marouane Fellaini to Italy on a season-long loan. The transfer will be finalized as soon as the Belgium international gives his approval to the switch.
The Italian newspaperGazzetta dello Sportis reporting that Napoli has agreed to pay United a fee of £4million in order to secure the services of the 26-year-old midfielder.
