Mellberg poised for Olympiakos move

MILAN - Juventus agreed to sell Sweden defender Olof Mellberg to Greek side Olympiakos on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old will move for 2.5 million euro, the club said in a statement to the Italian stock exchange.

He moved to Juve from Aston Villa on a Bosman free transfer last July but struggled at times at both centre back and right back.

Serie A runners-up Juve have signed Italy centre back Fabio Cannavaro from Real Madrid for next term as well as Werder Bremen playmaker Diego, with other potential targets including Udinese midfielder Gaetano D'Agostino.
