EVERYONE CAN BREATHE a deep sigh of relief as something finally appears to be happening on the Alexis Sanchez front.
The player will apparently sign for Barcelona this week. I don’t think I’ll fully believe it until I see him kitted out in a Barcelona jersey, preparing for the unenviable task of making a perfect team better.
Tottenham have their eye on Xherdan Shaqiri, who sounds more like some sort of cool mystical ninja than a footballer.
Any suggestion that Shaqiri is being looked at as a possible replacement for Luka Modric is likely to get a similar telling off to the player in this classic Harry Redknapp YouTube video.
Redknapp will be relieved that it’s been quiet for quite a while on the Gareth Bale front, however AC and Inter Milan are both considering rekindling their interest in the player possibly (in the case of Inter) to ensure he’ll never score another hat trick against them again.
Given that there are no more good full-backs left to sign, Arsenal and Liverpool will bid for Newcastle’s Jose Enrique.
Arsène Wenger’s penchant for acting crazily has become more apparent in recent years, and saying things like it’s his team’s “destiny” to win the Premier League is not going to quell fans’ fears over this anytime soon.
Ex-Arsenal man Emmanuel Adebayor is sounding more desperate by the day, as he once again pleads with Jose Mourinho to sign him.
Alex Ferguson has said there is “no interest” in Wesley Sneijder at the moment from the club, which is really code indicating he’ll be on the plane to Manchester next week.
Finally, Gael Clichy has experienced something of a culture shock following his move from Arsenal to Man City. Arsenal’s emphasis on skill and finesse is in stark contrast to City’s more robust approach in training, and Clichy is surprised by this for some reason.
