Rodwell to United, J.Cole and Ireland to Liverpool…
One day all of these men could be “ex-Liverpool”
For those of you who just don’t have the hours in the day for celebrity gossip, minds have been blown on showbiz desks all around London with news that Louise Redknapp – one half of the nation’s second favourite footballer/1990s girlband couple – said something about occasionally pondering what cosmetic surgery would be like. But SHE’S SO DAMN BEAUTIFUL WITHOUT IT appears to be the consensus.
Showbusiness journalists, take the rest of the day off.
Here’s what we know about transfers, thanks to the hard working sports journalists at the now-Lineker-free Daily Mail, The Sun, The Guardian etc…:
Sir Alex Ferguson – despite suggesting that Man United won’t be adding to their squad in the summer – is reportedly keen to make a big move for Everton’s sprightly defender/midfielder Jack Rodwell. The growing whisper is that United are lining up a bid of around £20million for the youngster, who may or may not be the “new Rio Ferdinand”.
Elsewhere in the beautiful north, Rafa Benitez doesn’t appear to be packing any suitcases, and looks likely to not only be staying, but apparently he’s keen to sign some players with proven Premier League worth. Two names floating around the various football gossip circles are Joe Cole and Stephen Ireland. Preferably both, so they say.
In other news, it looks like a Manchester head-to-head to land Ribery’s grotty thumb print in the summer, with reports suggesting that the whole prostitute debacle has made him unwelcome in Spain. Unlike Cesc Fabregas, who looks almost certain to head off to Barca (again!), with the intriguing possibility of Yaya Toure and Bojan Krkic going in the other direction.
And that’s your lot. For now…
