I know we shouldn’t believe all that is written but….
We can hope that some of its true can’t we?
In this case, its newspaper talk about Andrey Arshavin, Marouane Chamakh, and Johan Djourou.
Suggestion is that the little Russian has rejected all advances made by Reading and instead he could head off to PSV Eindhoven on loan. Dick Advocaat is their manager and I’m sure Arshavin would love to have a reunion with his old international boss!
Lille have joined the long list of clubs who are keen to give Chamakh a chance to resurrect his career. Another option is West Ham.
Hannover 96 president Martin Kind has confirmed that talks over signing Johan Djourou have taken place. A loan seems to be the initial idea but who knows, if the club let him go cheaply, he may well get a permanent deal.
Lastly on the ‘out’ rumours is Sebastian Squillaci. Having returned from pantomime season where he thoroughly enjoyed playing the rear end of the horse, he has confirmed that he is set to leave for pastures new. The grass isn’t always green elsewhere of course but even though he could get a ‘bumper deal’ elsewhere when his contract expires in the summer, he may just decide to get a taste of that grass this month:
I will be out of contract at the end of the season. As it stands, I will leave. Perhaps during the January transfer window or else I will wait for the month of June.
Marseille, Nice, Monaco, Bastia or Ajaccio are clubs that speak to me. I am 32 years old. I still have two or three good seasons left. On the French Riviera or elsewhere. I will choose depending on the opportunities that arise.
Taxi for Squillaci…….
That all has to be good news doesn’t it and will save the club at least £250, 000 a week in wages.
Talking of which, according to Sky Sports, the representatives of Theo Walcott begun talks with the club again yesterday and it’s believed that Theo will be made an improved offer between £85,000 and £90,000. Hopefully it will be enough to encourage him to stay.
Finally, and just a thought. Barcelona still owe us money for Alex Song and Cesc Fabregas don’t they? In fact they probably still owe us money from the Hleb sale, so why not go and tell them it’s time to pay up?
David Villa would do for starters and the newspapers won’t let that story go away will they……..
That’s it for the day, have a good one….
