Transfer Talk

Barcelona could poach Pepe Reina, Manchester City close to signing £30m Samuel Eto’o

The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies…

Samuel Eto’o

Samuel Eto’o to Manchester City
The Daily Mail believe Barcelona are close to accepting a £30m bid for the Barcelona striker, even though he will demand a ridonculous £320,000-a-week in wages. That’s twice as much as the likes of Lampsie and Stevie G, and more than twice as much as he deserves.

The Spoiler
The Cameroonian’s incredulous wage demands were a stumbling block in a touted move to Liverpool – surely even City aren’t prepared to pay those kind of wages.

Pepe Reina to Barcelona
Should the Catalan side be unable to secure a contract extension for Victor Valdes, they may put in a €20m bid for Spain’s number two, say El Mundo Deportivo.

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Reina is under contract at Anfield until 2014, and we really can’t see Rafa letting him go anytime soon.

Thomas Vermaelen to Arsenal
The Dutch defender will have a medical at Arsenal tomorrow, after completing a deal said to be worth around £10m.

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Vermaelen told the Dutch press: “The signature is not there yet, but everything is in order. This is one of the best days of my life.”
