Transfer News Today: Manchester United To Seal Deal For Star Forward


Sign Him Up

Radamel Falcao has convinced Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal of his fitness, and the club will reward the on-loan Colombian with a permanent deal this January.

Right move? Yes. Falcao has begun to start more games recently, and with question marks over the long-term future of Robin van Persie then signing him up would be a wise, if expensive move.

Falcao is 3.90 to score first against Yeovil in the FA Cup on Sunday

Liverpool have jumped back to the front of the queue to sign the Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri, as the Reds are offering a permanent deal whilst rivals Juventus and Inter Milan are only offering loans.

Can they get him? That remains a big if, but with the Steven Gerrard news and the Reds eager to sprinkle a bit of stardust on a messy season, perhaps they should break the bank.

Gerrard is 2.75 to score at any time against AFC Wimbledon on Monday

Arsene Wenger wants Yaya Sanogo to go out on loan to another Premier League club, with Aston Villa believed to be keen on the 21-year-old Frenchman.

That would do him some good. It would. Some time away from the Emirates goldfish bowl would be good for the young Frenchman, who could use it to develop him game.

Arsenal are 9.00 to win the FA Cup again

 

Jumping Ship?

Everton’s woeful form has got midfielder James McCarthy looking elsewhere, with Tottenham keen on signing the Republic of Ireland and former Wigan Athletic midfielder.

The Blues will turn it round though, won’t they? Yes they probably will, but they’ll need to do it quickly or the likes of McCarthy and others are going to start getting a little nervous.

Everton are now into 21.00 to get relegated

 

Staying On?

Manchester City are ready to give Martin Demichelis a new one-year contract to keep the veteran defender at the Etihad until the summer of 2016.

He’s actually alright isn’t he? He’s done well after a dodgy start to his City career, and his experience will be vital as Eliaquim Mangala continues to struggle to adapt to City life. 

Demichelis is 6.40 to net a rare goal against Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup
