News in brief

Real eye up Vidic, Wenger has a glance at Bellamy

Ronaldo and Vidic – set for reunion?

Ronaldo and Vidic

Having already snaffled Man United’s best attacker, the word on the street (or, more specifically, in today’s newspapers) is that Real Madrid will be spending a large portion of next summer attempting to do a similar dismantling job on Sir Alex’s defence.

They’re ready to put £20 million on the table in a bid to lure Nemanja Vidic and his family to the warmer climates of sunny Spain.

Already this week, The Spoiler has reported that Wayne Rooney could be the next Galactico targeted by the club. So, at this rate, does this mean that Darren Fletcher should start considering Spanish language classes? No, realistically, it probably does not.

Elsewhere in the world, the big news is that Arsene Wenger has a soft spot for Craig Bellamy. He said this, as reported in today’s Independent:

“I like the player but I’ve not done anything.”

“I don’t think we can buy players from City.”

Having sold Toure and Adebayor to Manchester City over the summer, a hunch suggests that relations should be relatively strong between the clubs, so they probably could buy if they really wanted to.

Much would obviously depend on the current state of the Bellamy rage in the aftermath of the Mark Hughes sacking.

But would signing the tantrum-prone speedster be good business for the North London club?

    Can’t see it, Bellamy too old and well overpriced at fourteen mil! If he’d take a 1 year rolling contract and we pick him up for £5m, then maybe, I guess. Not exactly going to give us many different options to what we have now though, what is he, 5’8″?

    No way Rooney goes. He is Man U…I can’t stand them, but could never see that happening. I could be wrong sitting over here in the states, but that doesn’t seem possible.
