Transfer News Today: Man Utd Set To Smash British Record For Bale

Forum chatter

Barcelona wonderkid Munir El Haddadi is keen to leave the Nou Camp in a loan deal in January, with Arsenal and Chelsea both interested in the 19-year-old forward.

Good move? Given that Didier Drogba and Loic Remy are struggling to displace Diego Costa, Chelsea wouldn’t really make sense for El Haddadi, who may find more opportunities at Arsenal.


Transfer speculation

Louis van Gaal is preparing to break the British transfer record for the second time in six months with a sensational £88million deal for Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

Good move? Bale will no doubt want to stay in Madrid, but Los Blancos are keen to recoup the £90million they paid Spurs for the Welshman – and United are ready to step in. Signing Bale would turn United into the English Galacticos and free up the cash for Madrid to sign Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund.


On his way?

Manchester City are weighing up a £47million bid for Germany central defender Mats Hummels, who is a long-term target for City’s rivals United.

Good move? With Dortmund languishing in the relegation zone, the German club are in a dilemma. Do they sell off their main assets in January for a big fee? Or do they wait until the summer and risk having to sell them for much less if they’ve been relegated?


Come and get me

Wilfried Bony could be the subject of a tug of war between Liverpool and Tottenham, who are both willing to offer £20million for the Ivory Coast striker.

Good move? Bony has been a consistent performer since joining Swansea and already has 8 goals from 18 Premier League games this season. His potential value to Liverpool or Spurs is clear – just how much do Swansea want to keep him?


New deal

Eden Hazard is close to agreeing a new deal with Chelsea, which would keep him at the club until 2019. 

Good move? Given that Hazard would stand to earn a dizzying £41.6million in wages, it’s safe to say it’s a good deal for the Belgian.

Bet on the upcoming Premier League action.
