Kasparov vs Caruana?
Kasparov - Caruana perhaps in October at Milano
It could take place in October at Milano - a mini-match between the number one Italian player Fabiano Caruana, who will be 18 years old on the 30th of July, and the ex-champion of the world Garry Kasparov, who is the trainer of the number one FIDE rated player in the world, Magnus Carlsen.
Valerio Luciani, whose publishing house Ediscere has published (in Italian) the celebrity series of Kasparov's books "My Great Predecessors", has informed the Italian magazine "Torre & Cavallo" that the negotiations have entered an advanced stage, and that the competition could be of four games either rapid or blitz.
Obviously, for events to take place involving persons of this caliber, the signing of contracts in required.
Special thanks to Lou for the information.
