TRANSFER NEWS: United Miss Out On 2, Liverpool Close In On 1…
Here are some of the latest transfer stories doing the rounds lately involving Liverpool, Man Utd and Man City.
Manuel Neuer, Schalke to Bayern Munich (It’s official)
Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has officially put pen to paper and has signed a contract with Bavarian giants Bayern Munich. He bucks the trend of moving to Bayern Munich from a German club, whom seem to be the destination of up and coming German players.
Bayern Munich managed to claim his signature after forking out a sum of £22million for the German International. So this ends Manchester United’s interest, at least for now, and will probably lead them to sign either Ajax’s Stekelenburg or Atletico’s David De Gea.
Maarten Stekelenburg, Ajax to Schalke
The Neuer deal could be a double whammy to Manchester United, as now it appears that Schalke are interested in their target Stekelenburg. There isn’t much on this, but it’s certainly one to watch.
Manchester City Gone Bonkers, They Want Xavi
Man City are ready to flex their financial muscle once more, as The Daily Mirror reports they want Barca midfielder Xavi. I actually don’t even want and need to bring up the quotes. Simply because it’s an impossible deal and will never happen. He is happy at Barcelona and simply won’t move to a ‘smaller club’ and the other reason being that Barca is his hometown club.
Brad Friedel to Liverpool?
Liverpool fans look away, and as a Liverpool fan myself, I don’t want this deal. The Daily Mirror claims that Liverpool are ‘closing in on a deal’ for the American keeper.
It is in the newspaper’s view that Pepe Reina is still headed to the exit door, but even I would strongly write that off, I doubt that Arsenal would seriously shell out 20 million pounds to fund a single transfer.
Liverpool target Stewart Downing is negotiating a new contract at Villa Park… Santa Cruz is set to make his move back to Blackburn permanent despite having a goal drought lasting 14 months…. QPR are considering a move for Liverpool flop Joe Cole.
