Transfer Talk

Ribery in shock Liverpool link, Vieira snubs Premiership move

The latest transfer gossip, news and damned lies

Franck Ribery

Franck Ribery to Liverpool
Shortly before Michael Owen’s meal ticket came in, the folks at Skybet dramatically slashed his odds of joining the Red Devils. Exactly the same thing has happened in the case of Franck Ribery and Liverpool – the Frenchman is currently 8/13 on to end up at Anfield next season, suggesting a transfer is imminent. Skybet’s Dale Tempest said:

“Every price we have put up has been taken on Ribéry moving to Liverpool, which has left us stumped as in recent weeks he has been liked with every other club but the Reds! After seeing money for him to join Man United and Real Madrid at the same time that Bayern Munich say he’s going nowhere, we’ve now seen a flood of bets on him to join Liverpool. 8/13 may seem a very short price but after the losses we made last week on Michael Owen, who was gambled down from 20/1 to move to Manchester United, we are taking no chances.”

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Much like the animals before inclement weather, the bookies are always the first to know…

Darren Bent to Sunderland

The Mirror believe the Black Cats have made a £12m bid for the unwanted striker, but the north Londoners are said to be holding out to recoup a little bit more of his £16.5m transfer fee.

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: It seems ambitious of Tottenham to expect more for Bent, but then again, they have supposedly raked in around £7m for Zokora.

Patrick Vieira not going to Birmingham
Despite reports that the Brummies offered the Frenchman £100,000-a-week to escape the Italian fashion capital, his agent insists it ain’t never gonna happen:

“There has been no contact with Patrick or myself from Birmingham.”This is not something we would entertain.

“Patrick is an Inter Milan player and is really puzzled by this one.”

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Maybe they could change his mind if they explained that he wouldn’t actually have to live in Birmingham?

  • Mrs Ribery (Wife) // July 10, 2009 at 1:57 pm

    There is no way I will let Frank join Liverpool. It’s too cold and it rains all the time. I will tell him to join Real Madrid as it is nice and sunny and they have Gucci and Fendi shops.

  • The Real Franck Ribéry // July 10, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    Listen you fools pretending to be me, you cannot even spell my name correctly. Sky Bet are right, Mr Benitez phone me last night and told me he wanted me to play on the left wing to link in with Gerrard and Torres. It would be an honour, however it is down to Bayern accepting the fee (40million euros). My dream is imminent, I will play for Liverpool Football Club. I will re-write history alongside Barnes, Berger and McManaman.

    I think by guy who looks like sloth, would you mean Ireland? You have mistaken him as playing for LFC, he plays for City. I am not going anywhere, Mascherano will be leaving though I cannot say to where. Ribery will be comming to Anfield, this will be our last signing of the summer. There will be loans, and sales, but I feel Franck will be the last until January. By the way has anyone noticed how much Rooney looks like Shreck? Just thought I would put that out for you. Please also watch Sir. Alex, as our signing will drive him to drink beyond his limits.


  • Kenny Dalglish // July 10, 2009 at 6:09 pm

    Aye, Ribery is joining me at the academy. He’s one for the future that kid. Aye.
