Barca’s £50m Fabregas bid, Drogba’s new contract, City ‘confident’ of landing Tevez
The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies
Hurrah! The summer transfer roundabout has been set into motion! Kaka is on the brink of sealing a world record transfer to Madrid, Daniel Sturridge has become Carlo Ancelotti’s first signing and Manchester City continue to be linked to every player under the sun. Isn’t life wonderful? Here’s the latest from Transferland…
Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona
The Daily Star believe the Catalan giants will attempt to take back what was once theirs, and are preparing to pay £50m for the privilege. Real Madrid and Chelsea are also said to be interested.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Cesc has made no secret of his desire to play in La Liga, and Barca would undoubtedly be his club of choice, but we suspect he has one more season of Premier League football in him.
Didier Drogba to stay at Chelsea
As a reward for his disgraceful Champions League behaviour, constant diving and general petulance, Le Drog has been given a three-year contract at the Bridge. He can thank Carlo Ancelotti, who is said to be a great admirer of his antics.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: We assumed Chelsea would cut him loose at the end of his contract, but this should be a pleasant surprise for fans.
Carlos Tevez to Manchester City
Despite their claims that they would not spend big money this summer, City are ‘confident’ they will prise Tevez away from Old Trafford this week. They are also said to be pursuing Joleon Lescott and Diego Forlan.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: City will have no problem meeting financial demands, so it’s all down to the wet dog-alike and his owners.
