Blades pull out of Ze Maria deal
Ze Maria
Ze Maria will not be moving to Sheffield United
Sheffield United will not be signing Brazilian midfielder Ze Maria after talks with his agent broke down.

The 34-year-old former Inter Milan, Parma and Perugia defender had a one-week trial with the Blades after leaving Spanish side Levante.

"Negotiations were ongoing and it appeared we'd reach an agreement," boss Bryan Robson told the club website.

"But talks have broken down, the player will not be joining us and I will be focusing on targets elsewhere."

606: DEBATE

After leaving Levante during the summer, Ze Maria had recently been linked with a return to Italy with Lazio.

He can play at right-back or on the right wing and has won 43 caps for Brazil in total.
