Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro is convinced the championship will be a shootout between themselves and Inter Milan. Cannavaro says AC Milan's challenge can be discounted after the decision to sell Kaka to Real Madrid.

He said: "At Inter, they have lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but have gained Samuel Eto'o.

"While for Milan, it will be hard without Kaka. The Rossonero have no heir for the Brazilian."

Meanwhile, Olympique Lyon fullback Francois Clerc has revealed the interest of Juve.

"You cannot say no to Juventus," said the Frenchman. "It is one of those clubs that no player would refuse. I am aware of the rumors, but I look forward to a concrete proposal."
