The Continental Breakfast: Osvaldo making the headlines in Europe as Juve take plunge on controversial striker

Everyday Sportsmail will take a look at several European papers to see what are the biggest sports stories creating talking points on the continent.

The Italian papers concentrate their main headlines on the deadline day transfer of controversial Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo, who has joined Juventus on loan until the end of the season.

The Italian side have the option to buy the 28-year-old, who joined the Saints from Roma last summer, for a fee of £16.5m by 31 May.

Corriere dello sport also focus on Osvaldo, as well as Inter Milan's major winter signing Anderson Hernanes who joined the Nerazzurri in a £20m deal from Lazio.

The Brazilian midfielder was a hugely popular figure at Lazio and emotions reportedly ran high before his departure, with the central midfielder apparently crying in his car as he signed autographs upon leaving Lazio's training ground for the final time.

There is very little transfer talk in the Spanish newspapers with AS running with Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez lauding the skills of Christiano Ronaldo, while Mundo Deprotivo concentrate on the upcoming Champions League clash between Barcelona and Manchester City, with contrasting injury news from the two teams.

News from the Nou Camp is that Neymar is expected to have recovered from his ankle injury in time for quarter-final clash, but City striker Sergio Aguero looks destined to miss the tie after suffering a hamstring injury at White Hart Lane in midweek. 

Barcelona play Valencia in La Liga this afternoon with just one point currently separating the top three teams.
