Van der Vaart eyes move to Serie A

The Dutch international would like to play in another country after taking in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and England and the Italian league looks likely to be next
Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has revealed a desire to play in Serie A before he hangs up his boots.

Italian giants Juventus, Inter and Roma are all rumoured to be interested in the 29-year-old this summer.

A return to Germany is also being suggested as Schalke are reportedly chasing the former Hamburg man but he has chosen to distance himself from speculation, insisting that he is enjoying life at White Hart Lane.
Serie A champions Juventus are 18/1 with Paddy Power to win the Champions League next season.

He told Dutch Playboy magazine: "I would like to play in Italy once. Much has been said about the Serie A not being attractive, but I have a good feeling about it."

Van der Vaart would like to stay involved with football once he's retired from playing.

He added: "I would like to become a person somewhere between a coach and technical director.

"Helping players, talking to them - just name it. A squad is very big nowadays and because of that players don't always get attention. Sometimes players who are out of favour are treated like garbage."
