Bollock chops reckons Joe Cole has already signed a deal to leave Chelsea. Clearly it isn't Spurs, so maybe United are indeed in the frame.
Just going to post a similar story....where is off to then?
Liverpool have recieved a bid of £28million from Barcelona for Javier Mascherano which indicates that Cesc Fabregas will be staying at Arsenal for at least one more season. Liverpool have neither accepted nor rejected the bid but have made a bid of £8.5million for Valencia midfielder Ever Banega which would indicate that they are going to accept the bid so expect Javier Mascherano to be lining up alongside Lionel Messi next year.........................watch this space
I'm not so sure about this. Spurs rushed to do a contract extension for Modric because Arsenal reportedly tabled a bid for him. Wenger has history here (despite claiming Modric was too lightweight for the Premier League) having been outbid by Spurs originally.
Anyway, the question is, why launch a bid for Modric is Fabregas is staying. It doesn't compute.
Who has launched a bid for Modric?? I am lost now
I should have been clearer. Spurs got wind (reportedly) of a bid from Arsenal for Modric. You will remember that they were outbid by Spurs for Modric's services last time.
I'm assuming it's United.
Yes I see what you are getting at, the Bara bid for Macherano I have heard in a few places, that would not surprise, he would be one 3 or 4 departures this Summer
That would surprise me as well, a total London lad moving up North.....not too sure, maybe Arsenal will get rid of Asharvin and buy Cole?
Gossip all through last season reporting the breakdown in the Benitez-Benayoun relationship, to a point where Benayoun now apparently refuses to speak to Benitez.
Mascherano's been angling for a move to Spain for the past 12-18 months and had a poor season, often looking disinterested. But hey, at least we've got Lucas
[weeps quietly to self]
Unless the Yank Muppets sell Liverpool within the next month, we're doomed. And that quick sale just isn't going to happen, even if the greedy tossrags revised the price to a more realistic level. Another seaosn of failure will just drive the pricce down further, make it more likely that the marquee players leave, which worsens our competitiveness, drives the price down, etc, etc, etc.
Just sell, FFS!!!!!
Strange times at the Pool , losing a few players looks likely though
Barca in 'official' talks with Arsenal regarding sale of Fabregas.

Sadly you are probably right
Just to make you feel beter, it looks like Arsenal are now favourites to get Joe Cole. If that's the case then I think you will have improved your squad - even with the departure of Fabregas.
Apparently Arsenal have told Barca " NO SALE"
It would appear so.
If the player dont want to be at Arsenal no point in keeping him.. hold out for the right price and take Barca,s money,
I don't think CF is as stroppy as Berbatov though, he might well give Arsenal one more year
Sol Campbell has opened talks with Celtic, might be a good move for him. Alan Thompson has gone to join N Lennon at Celtic.
Looks like Liverpool are likely to part company with their Manager ................and fairly soon.
