Transfer News and Rumours of the Day: 30th January, 2017
Top of the evening to you, gentlefolk. With just one day to go before the transfer window calls it a night, things are really heating up this winter. We at Sportskeeda’s are here to ensure that you don’t miss any of the best transfer news, or the juiciest transfer rumours and gossip being flung around the top leagues of Europe. Hell, if we were an insurance company, our tagline would be a really clever variation of “We’ve got your back”
We are not, they are not paying me to make taglines so.. “We’ve got your back, buddy”
Kostas Manolas wants to quit Roma
Kostas Manolas is NOT a happy Greek. The central defender was left out of Roma’s 3-2 defeat at Sampdoria, and his relationship with the temperamental manager Luciano Spalletti seems to have reached critical breaking point – or as agents call it, bonus-earning time!. Manchester United, Internazionale and Chelsea have all been heavily linked with the defender, and there might even be a move from those three before the window closes tomorrow! Whoever wants him will have to shell out more than 40 million, though. Can’t you just hear the cash registers jingling!
Before you ask me what Inter Milan are doing being mentioned alongside Manchester United and Chelsea, Gigi Buffon apparently said that Inter are better than even Real and Barca.. on current form. Yeah. Me neither.
Fiorentina want “the next Robert Lewandowski”
Fiorentina are on the move, as they so often are, and are hell bent on closing the deal for “the next Robert Lewandowski”, Lech Poznan (the guys behind that really stupid celebration that Manchester City once copied for a bit) talent Dawid Kownacki. The young Pole, all of 19 years old, can play as both striker and winger – and La Viola could really use a sensation in one, or both, positions.
Here’s more of the starlet, in case you think your club should show some interest in him as well
