Transfer Tuesday Part 4

What's the latest? Here we go....

Neymar on his way to PSG? a deal that is just mega money as PSG look to trigger his release clause. But is he really going off to Paris? He wants a Ballon D'or its a Brazil thing. You can't win it when your not the best player at in your team so maybe. However FIFA don't give the award for PSG players. We shall wait and see on that one.

Virgil Van Dijk is on 'Van Strike' as he has been training on his own and wants out. What does training on his own mean? Kicking a ball against at wall at Southampton's training ground? No players talking to him?

Naby Keita looks like he will be staying at RB Leipzig as Liverpool have had 3 bids rejected. He did nearly cripple a team mate in training this week.

West Ham finally landed some players, the signing of Javier Hernandez 'Chicharito' is a good bit of business a proven scorer and for so cheap in today's market.

Over at Man City Pep got rid of all his full backs this summer, this week Benjamin Mendy and Danilo rolled in to go along with Walker.

Sanchez is back in London now so his transfer saga should come to an end soon. I can still see him leaving no matter what Wenger says.

West Brom are in search of a centre back after making a bid for Ben Gibson at Middlesbrough and keeping an eye out on Chris Smalling who will fall down the pecking order at United next season.

Transfer Tuesday - Part 3

Here's the latest from the past week.

Kyle Walker is now the most expensive defender in football as he sets off to Man City. Now to me Spurs always make good business for the books. Berbatov, Modric, Bale etc Levy is no fool. But if Tottenham really want to challenge again making themselves weaker & City stronger may not be the best way of going about things.

'Sanchez Saga Latest': He's making comments about playing 'Champions League' football, he may have to force a move out the club himself if he really wants to go. Bayern have said their no interested.

At West Ham it looks like Joe Hart will be their marquee signing after passing his medical. For me he is done and West Ham may come to regret this move. 

Chelsea's hunt for a new forward may bring the to the door of Sergio Aguero. You would think no way City would sell to a rival and a player who has done so much for them. It would be really REALLY annoying if they land him.

Man United making progress with Perisic but the Morata deal soon changed so they could quite easily swoop for someone else if the deal drags.

In the Championship, Birmingham City have been 'Redknapped', as he has been linked to Robbie Keane, Ashley Cole and Stewart Downing. Boro have splashed out £15m on Assombalonga

In Italy all things are a go at AC Milan. They have been on a summer recruitment drive bringing in some quality players, Bonucci, Andre Silva, Calhanglu & Ricardo Rodriquez to name but a few.

Transfer Tuesday

The biggest deal of the week has come as a bit of a shock as Man United ended there interest in Morata and focused their attention to Lukaku who they have landed, from under the nose of Chelsea. So United have replaced the goals they have lost in Zlatan in a big way. Stormzy will be happy.

Chelsea could now turn to Morata or Llorente who are now looking a little light up top. Costa looks like he has defiantly played his last game at Chelsea. Tiemoue Bakayoko, should be through the door next week to go with Antonio Rudiger who they signed from Roma, in what has to be the worst 'new player social media video' ever.

Rooney has returned home to Everton with his PJs and all. He will have a massive point to prove to all his doubters.

Liverpool and Tottenham have been kind of quiet, they don't want to get left behind with so many getting stronger. 

Elsewhere some other notable news, West Ham this week were linked to Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic. Some other signings worth a mention Will Hughes to Watford, he's finally got out of Derby. Along with Tom Ince to Huddersfield who have gone about their business nicely with 8 new faces so far.

Harry Maguire from Hull to Leicester City is also a good bit of business.

Transfer Tuesday


A new feature this summer looking at some of the latest transfer gossip and deals with my take on them.

Alexandre Lacazette to Arsenal looks likely, some big clubs have been sniffing around him for a few summers. Now he's fallen behind Olivier Giroud in the French pecking order, so a bit of a down grade. Probably means Sanchez gone then too?

Sanchez to Bayern Munich? Arsenal have said they won't let him go to another English club...yeah OK 'R.V.P' Man City he could easily end up there. City also have the most expensive deal for a English club so far, bringing in Bernardo Silva from Monaco. Pep you may want to buy some defenders though now.

Everton have done a bunch of business, there going to get the cash back with the sale of Romelu Lukaku which looks like a return to Chelsea. Sandro Ramirez looks good, Michael Keane & Jordan Pickford is a nice little English pairing. Imagine if they had the England Captain on loan hey?

Man United apart from Victor Lindelof it's all gone quiet over there. Alvero Morata apparently cut his honeymoon short to finalise the deal, but that went down well with the new Mrs.

Tammy Abraham has gone to Swansea on a season long loan. He said the night life in Newcastle is too dangerous for a man his age. Tammy must have Geordie Shore on series link.

John Terry has gone Aston Villa, he will be given a kind welcome at all Championship grounds around England.


West Ham linked to everyone under the sun.
