Tevez Pulls Out Of A Move To PSG As He Craves For AC Milan

According to latest news the contract talks between Carlos Tevez and PSG have broken down. He, it seems, has set his heart on a move to AC Milan and media reports confirm that AC Milan has re-ignited their interest in the Argentinean and are ready to make a bid.

May Be, May Be Not!

 

THT Verdict:Ai??It seems that Carlos Tevez and his transfer saga has been running since the day the Berlin wall was brought down. It has been nothing short of a soap opera. Kia Joorabchian, Tevezai??i??s agent had travelled to Paris to hold talks with Carlo Ancelotti, and apparently his journey wasnai??i??t worthwhile. If media reports are to be believed. Tevez doesnai??i??t want to play in France and it was only due to Ancelotti that he agreed to talk in the first place. Tevez has his heart set for a move to AC Milan. It has to be noted that, Milan fell out of the race because they wanted to sign him on loan while City were keen to offload him permanently. Now that PSG has pulled out of the race, it is believed that Milan will come back with an offer. With only 9 days left in the transfer window, Cityai??i??s resolve will be tested. They might allow Tevez to leave on loan to Milan with an option of making the deal permanent at the end of the season. Most likely destination for Tevez right now seems to be Milan.

 

Tottenham Puts A?150m Tag On Bale After Manchester Cityai??i??s Enquiry

Tottenham have reportedly put an eye-watering GBP 150m price tag on their prized asset Gareth Bale. This comes after reports that Manchester City have made tentative queries about the Welshman.

150 million star !

 

THT Verdict : Manchester City have reported made a number of tentative queries for the Welsh winger. But 150 million ? Harry Redknapp seriously has a good sense of humour. On the other hand even Hulk has a 100 million release clause. Tottenham are deparate to repeat their feat of holding on to Modric this season. One thing for sure, Tottenham can delay it, but surely cannot avoid it. Enjoy till Bale and Modric last, it wonai??i??t be long though.

 

Liverpool Bid To Sign Chelsea & Inter Target Krasic On Loan From Juventus

According to latest Rumours, Liverpool are trying to bring Milos Krasic on loan from Juventus, beating stiff competition from Inter, Chelsea and Fenerbahce.

On his way to Anfield ?

 

THT Verdict : Milos Krasic name has been linked with a host of clubs across Europe during this transfer season. Liverpool seem to be the latest suitor of the Serbian winger. Krasic has been left frustrated at the lack of starts he has got in the first team. Juventus are also keen on offloading the player. Though it is believed that the Italian club are looking for a permanent deal, most of the teams are interested in taking him on loan. Liverpool, after an indifferent start to their season, are in search of a creative midfielder and Krasic seems a realistic option for them. What works in their favour is the fact that Juventus might be skeptical about selling Krasic to title rivals Inter and Chelsea, who have been linked with a move earlier, are yet to table any bid for him. A probable deal!

 

Real Madrid & Juventus Tracking Welbeck & Pogba of Manchester United Respectively

Reportedly, Danny Welbeckai??i??s contract dispute with Manchester United is being watched closely by Real Madrid at the moment. They are said to be very keen on the young English Striker.

Other reports claims that, Juventus are looking to bid for Paul Pogba, whose contract is set to expire next season.

Will United lose him ?

 

THT Verdict : Danny Welbeck has been a rising star for United this season. He has been in superb form and has over taken Berbatov and Owen in the starting line-up. If recent reports are to be believed, Welbeckai??i??s recent contract talks have broken down, due to the forwardai??i??s high wage demands. The Englishman was supposed to sign a five year contract extension, but it seems that he is demanding four times the wages which he is receiving now. Jose Morinho has been sending scouts to watch Welbeck this season. He is known to be a long time admirer of the young forward, since his days at Chelsea. It is a hard world now a days, If United fail to give Welbeck the wages he demands, we might very well see him at Madrid sooner rather than later.

Juventus, it seems, are in pole position to sign Paul Pogba, another Manchester United youngster, whose contract expires next season. Pogba has growingly become frustrated about not been able to break into the United first team this season. The Frenchman is hardly interested in extending his contract with the Red Devils. Juventus has been lining him up for quite a while now and have tracked his progress at the club. In all likelihood this is going to be the last season of Pogba at United.

 

United, Spurs & Arsenal To Reignite Interest In Jan Vertonghen Of Ajax

Jan Vertonghen, Ajaxai??i??s much sought after defender has hinted at a move away from Amsterdam in near future. This has put clubs United, Tottneham and Arsenal, who were earlier linked with him on high alert.

Only a matter of time !

 

THT Verdict : Jan Vertonghen had said this in an interview to AT5 “There is talk of a contract extension, but not much has been said. Perhaps Ajax will find it to be a good thing when I leave, I don’t know. But I think that in the future I could have a very good transfer.” Tottenham had earlier held talks with Ajax regarding the transfer of Vertonghen, the defender during that time had said that he didnai??i??t want to leave the club now. Ajax, who have made a name for themselves as ai???Selling-Clubai??? in recent years, seem to have resigned to the fact that the talented defender will leave them sooner or later. Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham will be on high alert after this comments. Though it seems unlikely that the player will leave in January, but come June there is bound to be a tug-off ear for Vertonghen.

 

Inter Milan & Real Madrid To Make Audacious Summer Bids To Land Liverpoolai??i??s SuarezAi??

Italian and Spanish giants Inter and Real Madrid seem to be lining up bids for Liverpool hotshot Luis Suarez in the summer.

Will he stay in England ?

 

THT Verdict : This might seem outrageous on the outset, but when we consider the controversies surrounding the Uruguayan international, it might as well seem logical. Suarez has been arguably Liverpoolai??i??s best player this season, on the pitch that is. Off it, he has been surrounded by controversies. Following his much talked about verbal clash with Patrice Evra and 8 match ban, Liverpool has been the subject of lot of negative publicity. The club has been criticized in lot of sectors and Suarez has been blasted by fans and experts alike. Talks are that, Suarez realizes that he will be a marked man in English football from now onwards, might look for an opportunity to leave the country. On the other hand, Liverpool might realize that having Suarez in the team might prove as an handicap in getting good commercial deals as well. Having said that, Kenny Dalglish will not want to lose his best player anytime sooner and will resist any possible move, but stranger things have happened in football. If Real Madrid or Inter come up with a mega-offer, Liverpool owners might very well consider it as a good business and also an opportunity to clear their names. A farfetched rumour, but cannot be rubbished completely.
