Transfer News Today: Could Berbatov move to Arsenal?

Today's transfer tittle tattle centres around comings and goings at Manchester City and two potential signings for Arsenal...

Forum Chatter

Manchester City are ready to solve their goalkeeping problems with a £40m bid for Manuel Neuer.

Why it will happen: City have the resources to pull off such a deal and such a huge bid would surely be considered on it’s merits by the Germans.

Why it won’t happen: Bayern don’t need the money so why would they sell a player that would be extremely difficult to replace?

Tabloid Speculation

Arsenal will make a bid for Seamus Coleman if Bacary Sagna fails to sign a new deal.

Why it will happen: Coleman has shown great form this season and could prove the perfect long-term replacement for the 30-year old Sagna.

Why it won’t happen: With Arsenal on the up, there’s nothing to suggest that Sagna won’t sign a new deal. They also already have the impressive young full-back Carl Jenkinson ready to step into Sagna’s shoes.

Tabloid Speculation II

Arsene Wenger is considering a shock move for Dimitar Berbatov in January.

Why it will happen: Berbatov looks set to leave Fulham in the next transfer window and Berbatov would make a cut-price solution to Arsenal’s striker problems.

Why it won’t happen: The Bulgarian turns 33 in January. Arsenal generally prefer to buy younger talent.

No Deal

Manchester City will resist loan offers from Roma and Inter Milan for their summer signing Stevan Jovetic.

Why it will happen: If City want to mount a title challenge this season then they will need a deep squad. They have also made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League and the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Why it won’t happen: Jovetic has only played five times in all competitions this season. A loan deal could make sense, though a move to an English club might help him acclimitise better.
