Hottest transfer targets

Posted in Transfers with tags , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2011 by burningball

Its 1st of August now and there are only 30 days until the end of the transfer window.Some clubs have finished their transfer jobs, others still try to lure players with money and promises for trophies…

The Bad Boy look like he is trying to find way out

Mario Balotelli has always been controversial player and everyone knows it.In Mourinho’s first season at Inter Super Mario was accused of not training properly in trainings and was left out of the match squads in January 2009.The next year, when Inter won a treble, Mario’s bad behaviour reached its peek as he publicly said that Mourinho wasn’t responsible for the good results, the players were.That result in portuguese coach leaving Balotelli out of the team.And to top that he weared a shirt of rivals Milan in the Striscia la Notizia TV show and said that he was a fan of them.After all this he was transferred to Man City where he continued with all his actions as he had a traffic accidents, also has hunderds of trafic bills to pay and still doesn’t take football seriously.A few days ago against LA Galaxy when he was in clear scoring position he tried to score with a backheel shot but failed.That result in Mancini substituting him subsequently and resulting in a new scandal between them.Now there are rumours he may move to Milan as he said in interview that he can talk about this deal…but this won’t happen unless one of the Milan strikers move out and most close to that is Antonio Cassano.Milan manager Allegri said that he is 4th choice and Antonio may not be happy with this, resulting in his transfer and the signing of Super Mario…And don’t forget that Mario’s Agent is Mino Raiola who brought his clients Ibrahimvoci and van Bommel to Milan and helped in the deals of Robinho and Emanuelson.We’ll see what wil happen.

Sneijder's future is still not declared

The world class playmaker is looking like he waits a transfer in Manchester United…There are rumours for this deal from months but the problem may be the prise of the dutchman as the devils paid a lot of money for the transfers of David de Gea, Phil Jones and Ashley Young.Sneijder himself declared that a summer move can happen and that there is a chance to play in United next season.But sir Alex Ferguson made it clear that the summer transfers have finished and there will be no more…Contrast to this is the statement of Man Utd CEO David Gill “But you never know – there’s often movement in August. I’m not sitting here saying I’m working on anything because I’m not, but that situation could change quickly when we get back to Carrington”.There is still plenty of time and personally I think that United will complete this deal until the 31th of August as they did with Berbatov in 2008 hours before the end of the transfer window.

Real is on the chase for Neymar but the youngster looks like he doesn't care

Neymar is the star of Santos nowadays and there are many reasons he MUSTN’T go to Real.It may sound stupid but i think he is similar to Robinho/he is an ex-Santos player too and their playing style are similar/ and a transfer to Real Madrid at this age will be very bad choice.But my opinion is not important and Neymar doesn’t look so enthuasiastic about his transfer to Santiago Bernabeu…He declared to the press after winning Copa Libertadores that he wants to win World Clup Cup. where he will face Barcelona and Messi eventually.But Real Madrid still hasn’t give up on this transfer as they are ready to meet his release clause but Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro denies every posiibility of Neymar’s transfer before the Club World Cup.But everyone knows that when Florentino perez wants a player, there isn’t anything to stop him…


What’s the future for Fabregas?

Posted in Transfers with tags , , , , , , on July 29, 2011 by burningball

These days  Every summer Arsenal fans are tortured by one transfer rumour – whether or not Fabregas will complete his transfer to Barcelona, the club of his heart…And usually everyone gets sick of this stories of the “100% sure transfer of Fabregas to Catalonia”, “Arsenal and Barcelona have reached an agreement for Cesc” and “Wenger has let Fabregas negotiate with Los Cules”.

Cesc celebrates his goal for Barcelona...wait, this is Photoshop 😀

Every year the Arsenal player with #4 on his back leaves and returns to Arsenal a few times in the summer transfer window.But why does he want to leave?Let’s see and think about it….

  • He spent 6 years at Barceloan’s youth formations and it’s not secret that he’s a fan of Barca from a child.As he trained at La Masia he made friendships with now star players Gerard Pique and Leo Messi and if he transfers to Barca he will be able to play with them.
  • He started his carrer as a defensive midfielder because of his idol Josep Guardiola…See?The manager of Barcelona!Altough with the likes of Busquets, Keita, Mascherano, Iniesta and Xavi Barcelona doesn’t need another central midfielder, Guardiola still hasn’t denied the possibility of signing Cesc this summer and this is one thing I don’t understand – they paid a lot of money for Sanchez while they sell Bojan to Roma, they have perfect midfield and they still want to get Cesc ppfff.This is because Guardiola still can’t make the right transfer desicions and will keep make mistakes like Ibrahimovic, Chygrinskyi and Caceres.
  • Altough this summer Arsenal is doing very good on the transfer market with the signings of Juan Manuel Mata/not official but almost complete deal/ and Gervinho, along with the potential world class players like Ramsey and Wilshire they don’t have chance for trophies…This may sound a little drastic but Wenger can’t win the Premier League and his team is far away from chasing the Champions League trophy.They have a serious trouble in defense with the unreliable goalkeepers Almunia and Fabianski.The defense is a weak part also as Vermaelen stays too much time injured and there’s no substitute for him.Midfield is good but again in attack van Persie isn’t the striker who can lead the Gunners to glory, neither is Chamakh.And with the likes of City, United and Chelsea Arsenal doesn’t stand a chance.
I wonder what’s gonna happen in the next month – will Fabregas break the chains of captivity and sign with the Catalan team or he will stay for another trophieless season in London?

But there is always a third choice *evil laugh*

There are many rumors in the italian press saying that the next week is very important for the Fabregas ==> Barcelona negotiations and if they fell apart Milan’s vice president Adriano Galliani will try to tempt Arsenal with a bid for Cesc…Actually, I don’t think it will hapen but mr.Berlusconi promised a star will coast in Milan this summer and I wouldn’t be disappointed if it’s Fabregas 🙂

Why does everyone goes to City?

Posted in Transfers with tags , , , , on July 28, 2011 by burningball

Aguero will be the next victim

I just don’t understand this shit…Is money so important for footballer nowadays?Why does some of the most talented players go to City and ruin their career?

The first superstar

The brazilian Robinho was actually the first world class player who transfered to City after the club was bought by Abu Dhabi United Group.Here at least he gots motive – Real tried to use him as an exchange for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2008, later he rejected a new contract and signed with The Citizens.And he’s a brazilian – something that is never associated with loyalty in football as they change their clubs often.

I can understand Robinho, but why the hell did Tevez moved to City?He was playing in Man Utd with players like Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo and he just played at the Champions League final against Barcelona in 2009…United offered him a high salary contract that he rejected and later signed for City.Why?Because of their great history and club atmosphere?Hell no!!!Like the brazilians, the argentinian players are mainly selfish and greedy/there are exceptions like Javier Zanetti too but not much/, so is Tevez and he transfered to his ex-team’s rival.I also don’t understand why players like Kolo Toure and Adebayor left Arsenal to sign with City, why talanted young players like David Silva and Edin Dzeko are in this team instead of Real Madrid or Milan for example..Because in the end there is no future for them, Mancini is not a bad coach but doesn’t have the mentality to cope with these ego bursting stars as Balotelli shows it every week.

The picture says everything

And now Sergio Aguero, a player that I like very much signs with City for the mind blowing 45 million euros.He has played 5 season in Atletico Madrid – the club that made him a star and where he won the UEFA CUP/sorry but Europa League sounds stupid for me and I don’t use this phrase/.And that is when a club like Juventus was interested in him and maybe could offer 10 million less than Manchester but there he would have a chance to prospect.And don’t think that I hate City ==> as a fan of Milan I don’t like the transfers of degraded players like Ibrahimovic and Robinho who can ruin up the atmosphere in the team.They are just media stars/which are bought to sell seasonal tickets and jerseys/ and high percent of these stars ruin their carrer after a transfer like this.I miss the old days when they were more players like Giggs, Maldini, Del Piero, Puyol and the money didn’t mean anything…
