Good morning everyone… it feels like groundhog morning. Every day I wake up, look at the newsfeed and it’s the same stories clogging up the same places. So really, there’s not a whole lot I can bring to this post.
Silly story of the day goes to The Mail who have plucked a load of desirable players out of thin air to make up a sensational back page story. They’ve run with Arsenal spending £64m on Bender, Higuain and Gundogan. I really can’t see us pulling anyone away from Dortmund, they can’t sell their whole squad. I don’t really have a view on Bender. The Hig part of the story feels like the only part that might have a hint of reality.
Outside that story… Jovetic has gone on record about wanting Juve. Good for him. He needs to move on sharpish so I can stop writing about him. Juve are going crazy this summer. They already have Llorente, they’re pushing for Tevez… they gots cash.
Demba Ba is rumoured to be on his way out of Chelsea… they’re looking at Mario Gomez as his replacement… another good player who has been overlooked this summer by everyone.
Rumours are flying around the web that Barca need to sell Cesc to purchase new players. Apparently Thiago is preferred to our favourite Spaniard. There are strong rumours that United want him for £40m… but that would still leave Barca £10m out of pocket due to the 50% sell on clause we have in place. Imagine that, making £20m without having to sell a player? Amusing. But sad at the same time because United would have another of our captains!
Nik Bendtner has been telling the press 5-6 clubs are interested in him… yeah, of course they are… Like last season eh? He’s another player that shocks me. He genuinely believed he was on track to be the greatest striker on the planet. Now he’s pissing around trying to save his £52k a week deal. Where’s the ambition?
That’s me out… have a good day!
