UNITED IN FOR SNEIJDER. AGAIN
Wahey! It's December, which means it's the transfer window soon, which means you'll read a slew of rumours linking Manchester United to Wesley Sneijder.
And here it is, with The Daily Express losing the way. At least they've been slightly creative about it all.
They report that United could throw Nani and/or Antonio Valencia into a deal to tempt Galatasaray to sell the Dutch midfielder.
However, as you might imagine it all seems rather flimsy, and they do quote Sneijder himself as saying:
"I'm going nowhere, your going to keep seeing me in a red and yellow shirt."
Still, even if it isn't true, there's a comforting familiarity to the whole thing.
LIVERPOOL IN FOR INGS
Interesting one in The Daily Mirror, who report that Liverpool are looking for a back-up striker, and they're looking in the direction of Burnley.
The paper claims Brendan Rodgers is considering bringing Danny Ings to Anfield in order to provide some cover for Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
The Mirror reports: 'High-flying Burnley would demand a major fee for Ings as they are chasing the massive financial prize of promotion back to the Premier League.
'However, the parachute payments from their last stint at the top table in 2009-10 are running out, and they recently revealed losses that were only partly covered by the summer sale of striker Charlie Austin to Queens Park Rangers.
'If Liverpool come calling with a decent offer - and if Ings wants to go - it will be a hard move for them to resist.'
Tish and fipsy, we'd guess.
The idea of players wanting to leave struggling teams because they're struggling has always been a rather curious one, since they're probably a big reason their team is struggling.
Still, logic does not always apply to footballers, so we bring you the news that Dimitar Berbatov wants to leave Fulham before the end of his contract, which expires next summer.
Despite the arrival of Rene Meulensteen, an old bezzie of Berba's from Manchester United, Berba wants out, according to the Mirror.
The paper reports: 'Ex-Manchester United coach Meulensteen - who worked with Berbatov at Old Trafford - insisted last month that he was the man to improve the frontman's poor form in order to shoot Fulham out of trouble.'
Trabzonspor are keen apparently, and the paper quotes club president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu as saying: "Berbatov has been on our agenda. We want better and better quality and are endeavouring to add that to our squad."
COURTOIS WANTS TO CHALLENGE CECH
This is one of those slightly curious transfer stories, which doesn't really involve a transfer.
The Daily Mail reports that Thibaut Courtois wants to return to Chelsea when his loan at Atletico Madrid finishes.
Not exactly the most galloping shock, eh?
I'd take Berba as Giroud backup. Obviously won't close the ball like our HFB but Berba is great at filling his boots v poor opposition, that's what wins you leagues.- highburyJD
