Today’s most speculative transfer story features Chelsea’s David Luiz. Apparently Laurent Blanc is ready to make a bid for the Brazilian defender, if he gets the Paris St Germain job.
Call us old fashioned, but we at least like to see a manager appointed, before we’re ready to pay much attention as to who he’s likely to buy.
It’s not me, it’s you
This new section of the column is on hand to detail the clubs who find themselves left jilted at the transfer alter, as their intended makes off with another team.
Today it’s Southampton who have received a triple-whammy, with Radja Nainggolan, Victor Wanyama and Pablo Osvaldo all rumoured to be ready to reject moves to the club. Perhaps some new aftershave would help?
Blackpool’s Thomas Ince looks as if he’s going to continue his sensible career progression with a move to Premier League newcomers Cardiff, who are said to have had a bid accepted for the winger.
The Guv’nor’s son left Liverpool as a youth to move to a club where he might actually get a game. Having now made a name for himself, Ince has eschewed the opportunity to sit back on Liverpool’s bench and will be looking to establish himself in the Premier League.
Remember Curtis Davies? Of course you do. He’s that player who Martin O’Neill paid a fortune for when he was Villa manager, who ultimately didn’t turn out to be much good. What do you mean that doesn’t narrow it down?
Well, remember him or not, Davies is set to step back into the big time with a move to newly-promoted Hull City. The deal should be tied up today.
Signed, sealed and delivered
Barely a day goes by without Liverpool closing a deal on a La Liga attacker that we’d never heard of two weeks ago.
Iago Aspas yesterday completed his £7m move from Celta Vigo, hot on the heels of Luis Alberto’s transfer from Sevilla. Perhaps name tags would be a good idea for the first day of pre-season training.
