Midfielder eyes Italian football...
Sporting CP midfielder Miguel Veloso has declared he wants to experience football in Serie A.

The 24-year-old midfielder has caught the eye of several clubs across Europe after four years of service with Sporting.

Veloso, currently with Portugal's national squad in South Africa, has made no secret of his wish to compete abroad, and he has now restated he has bigger plans for his career.

"I will decide my future after the World Cup. I believe this would be the right year to leave Portugal and play in Italy," he told Corriere dello Sport.

"Who is following me? Milan, Juventus and Fiorentina... We will see, I am ready."

Last night, the Portuguese club's sporting director Costinha indicated they had received no offer for Veloso or any other player in their squad.
