Transfer News Today: Speculation Grows Over £40million Falcao Move


Going nowhere

Gonzalo Higuain’s agent and brother has denied reports that he’s leaving Napoli in January.

Was he ever going to join Liverpool? Well, speculation was rife after Napoli signed Manolo Gabbiadini from Sampdoria recently. But Higuain wants to stay at the club and fight for his place. Liverpool have since turned their interest to recalling Divock Origi early from his loan at Lille.

BET: Will Origi join Liverpool in January?

 

Come and get me

Italian giants Juventus and Roma are eyeing a £40million move for Manchester United reject Radamel Falcao.

Can it happen? The Colombian hasn’t had the best of spells of United. He was injured when he arrived, briefly broke into the first team scoring a couple of goals, and was then left out of the squad altogether for the defeat by Southampton. It seems unlikely that United will sign him permanently in the summer and, with Roma in particular looking to bolster their attacking, it could materialise in the summer. But Monaco have put a huge valuation on Falcao’s head.

Adnan… Cruyff?

David Moyes has compared Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj to Johan Cruyff – but has denied he wants to sign the 19-year-old on loan.

But we all know that’s not true, right? Right. Moyes gave Januzaj plenty of minutes at Old Trafford last season and the Belgium star would know he’d get the same at Real Sociedad. A loan deal could happen, but Januzaj is a target for PSG and Juventus.

 

In talks

Aston Villa are in talks with Manchester City over the signing of Scott Sinclair.

Surely City don’t want Sinclair? No, but they want £3million, a figure Villa are unwilling to pay. “We can’t do what Man City are asking us to do at this minute,” said Villa boss Paul Lambert. “If it became feasible financially then who knows but there’s a bit of them asking too much at the moment.”
