Fabregas in Manchester Talks, Sneijder looks to Bridge
Another day brings plenty more transfer gossip and Manchester United are the club grabbing some of headlines today as they are trying to complete the stunning double signing of Robert Lewandowski and Cesc Fabregas.
We revealed yesterday that Lewandowski wasn’t likely to be sold to Bayern Munich as Borussia Dortmund don’t want to sell to their German rivals, but a move to Old Trafford could be on the cards for the Pole.
If it did happen, it would leave many questioning the future of want-away striker, Wayne Rooney.
As for Fabregas, he has revealed he doesn’t want to leave Barcelona, but the club could be willing to let him go, leaving him with no choice but to head out of the Nou Camp. It is thought the Red Devils are the team monitoring his situation right now.
Chelsea are, as expected, being linked with a number of players and Jose Mourinho seems to be keen on bringing Wesley Sneijder to Stamford Bridge.
The Dutchman was of course playing for Inter Milan when Mourinho delivered the treble back in 2010 and although he only signed for Galatasaray a few months ago, £12.75 million might be enough to bring him to the Premier League.
Mourinho feels as though Sneijder’s experience and knowhow when it comes to winning trophies can help the squad, as well as his obvious ability.
We are sure to see Luis Suarez linked with a number of clubs during this summer transfer window and the Liverpool striker has admitted that a move to Real Madrid does appeal to him.
Although Suarez loves being on Merseyside, he feels as though he needs to move away from English football and the Spanish giants could offer the Reds a significant amount of money for their star man.
Real won’t just settle for Suarez though as they are also keen on Edison Cavani, who has been a target for Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal recently.
It is thought that Real are now the club leading the way as a potential new club for Cavani and they might start doing some business soon.
Also, the Spanish giants are keeping an eye on Gareth Bale and haven’t ruled out paying a fee of around £85 million for the winger. Although Tottenham Hotspur don’t want to sell, they might find it tough to turn down such a big fee.
In other Premier League transfer news, Sam Allardyce has said that making Andy Carroll a West Ham United player this summer is a priority and that he hopes to get a deal done soon.
Carroll is likely to cost less than half of the £35 million Liverpool paid for him during the January transfer window of 2011.
One man who doesn’t look to be leaving the Reds is Pepe Reina, as he seems to have ruled out a move to Barcelona or Napoli and that could mean he is plying his trade at Anfield once more next season.
We could see some movement in a lot of these stories over the next few days.
