As we move in to the off-season an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go in to overdrive. This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?


Manchester United are prepared to double 26-year-old Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas’s current wages in a bid to lure him to Old Trafford.

Cesc Fabregas

Full story: Sunday Mirror

What’s the story? This is a classic case of not taking the characteristics of the player in to account. Fabregas is lead by his heart, not his wallet.
Does it make sense? We all know that signing Fabregas makes great football sense but he has said, and Barcelona have said, that he’s not going anywhere, not to mention the fact that Arsenal get first refusal on him.
Is the price right? These reports that Barcelona would take £31m are nonsense. They paid more than that to get him.
Will it happen? 2/10 – I don’t see how it can.
