The All Done Gossip


Liverpool to make record bid for Ross Barkley, Stones off to London, Arsenal want double Real Madrid swoop...

When the Daily Star go with one of their 'Exclusives' they tend not to pack any punches, and so it is this morning, with the paper reporting that David Moyes has been handed a £150million.....wait for it.... WAR CHEST with which to improve his squad. Does anyone else love a little giggle at the phrase 'war chest'? Just us? Fair enough.

Moyes is thought to be keen on bringing Uruguayan Cavani from PSG, with the striker reportedly unhappy with the French League, putting United (along with Chelsea) on alert.

Not finished there, the Star on Sunday then claim that United will also try and seal a £37m deal for Julian Draxler, and are also eyeing up Borussia Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan, 23, and Marco Reus, 24, plus Atletico Madrid's Koke, 22,along with Porto's centre-half Eliaquim Mangala, 22, valued at £40m and Luke Shaw.

Whilst you can't blame them for not being ballsy, there are two issues United fans may have with the story:
1. All these moves would only take place in the summer rather than January
2. It may not be true.

The Sunday Mirror report that Arsenal are keen on the loan signing of forward Mirko Vucinic from Juventus. Vucinic has found his opportunities limited thanks to the form of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, and therefore the paper believe that a move works for all parties.

The Mail on Sunday add flesh to the Mirror's story, claiming that Juventus would prefer a £10million permanent deal for the Montenegrin striker.

However, Arsene Wenger has been a right old spoilsport by pouring iced water on such stories.

"We are looking at potential possibilities for us to get someone in, but we are not especially in for Vucinic," he said.

"Some people have visual capacities that I don't have.

"We are not on any special case"


The first line of the Sunday Mirror's big Spurs transfer story is both hard-hitting and potentially pant-wetting for supporters: "Tottenham will compete for German star Marco Reus this summer."

The paper does accept that reported interest from Manchester United and Arsenal may be a problem, but claim that the North London club will "enter the race" for Reus is Tim Sherwood can reduce the club's wage bill.

Given the reports of players leaving left, right and centre of late, that half of the task may well prove to be the easiest.
