A little update for you, Cesc Fabregas is still an Arsenal player for now. Barcelona are rumoured though to be making a £35million bid within the next couple of days. If and probably when he goes all eyes will be on Nasri. I think he will be offered a new bumper contract & maybe the captains’ armband. However Manchester United are looking for a Scholes replacement. Wesley Sneijder is one prospect; United will offer him a bumper contract and would be an ideal player for them. Looking closer to home Luka Modric is someone on the radar. Chelsea had a bid rejected, the player wants to leave and United tend to get a player from Spurs when they offer big money. But Nasri is also an option for United. He could be tempted as he sees Arsenal offloading stars rather than bringing them in. I say Cesc will go Nasri to stay. Rumour has it though; Bolton’s Gary Cahill has put his house up for sale and could be making his way down to the capital.
Connor Wickham has completed his move from Ipswich to Sunderland. Will be interesting to see if the England under21 star can make the grade in the Premier League. Other rumours are, Neymar targeted by five clubs, I would say Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City Chelsea & Inter. Also, Alexis Sanchez to Barcelona looks to be on the cards.
On the QPR front, deals for Jimmy Bullard and Jay Bothroyd look to be completed soon. QPR are being linked to a number of players, the likes of Hargreaves, Cannavaro won’t happen & I don’t think QPR fans want a croaked player anyway. Adel Taarabt is making comments, (don’t know how true) about looking for a move but Taarabt will start the season at Loftus Road. (PSG are eyeing up a £10million bid). Craig Mackail-Smith reportedly snubbed a move to QPR because they could not rely on Warnock being manager at the start of the season?
