Liverpool and Spurs set to fight for Aston Villa keeper Freidel. The 39 year old's contract will expire in the summer which will allow him to transfer to any club for free. Villa are keen to hold on to the American who is set to announce his decision next week.
I don't know why Liverpool want him unless he's for a back up but for Spurs I could understand.

I'm not suprised with the speculation for Spurs. Freidel is a consistent goalkeeper with no nonsense. Something Spurs could really use
Jimmyjack (Schalke 04) 5 years ago
I don't know why he should go it's not like he's going to get any playing time
Pedrosanchez (Liverpool) 5 years ago
I have no idea what Harry Redknapp was thinking here, signed another gk who seems just not good enough for a top 4 club, if he's aiming to improve the club this transfer season this seems like a foolish signing. Too old. Used to be very good. But really, why would any club need 3 average keepers? Wasnt 2 enough?

Mancini wants Ibrahimovic

Link: www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11661_6926554,00.h...

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini could attempt to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer as he builds a squad for the UEFA Champions League.

Ibrahimovic is currently on loan at Serie A champions AC Milan from Barcelona and the Swede has said he wants to stay at the San Siro, but a City bid of around £20million could change the situation.

Looks like Tevez will be on the move and unless Dzeko and Balotelli step up City may have to sign another "top class" striker

Man United are set to make Dutch keeper Maarten Stekelenburg their next target in the summer transfer window. The Red devils are looking to find a replacement for current goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar who will retire at the end of the season and they see Stekelenburg as a good option for a 1st choice keeper next season after their original number one target, Schalke's Manuel Neuer made it clear that he wouldn't be joining united in the summer. However Ajax want to hold on to their number one keeper and it looks like Man united may have to pay more than 15m to secure his services.

Borussia Dortmund will confirm the sale of Nuri Sahin to Real Madrid on Monday, according to German source Ruhr Nachrichten.

Well looks like all the speculation over his future is over. I hope he does well will Real Madrid and become one of their successful signings

Isn't 10m kinda cheap?

He will do nothing at real, just sit on the bench

Yeah, hopefully we can see him play.... ...

Sahin to Madrid for 9m. Isn't 9m a bargain for Madrid?

Why go there only to sit on the bench?
Markodon (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 5 years ago
God I hate Real.... They just buy and buy and keep failing. When are they going to realize they are ruining players and not achieving anything in the process. Greedy morons. I also hate the fact that team like Borussia sell half of their teams even though they got into champions league and have a huge support (wouldn't be surprised if Porto sell Falcao, Hulk, etc.)
FootyRulz (Chelsea) 5 years ago
@Markodon: I feel the same way, if Dortmund sell their stars that helped them reach 1st in the German league then I doubt they will be able to defend their title next year
Markodon (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 5 years ago
Yeh, it makes me sad, I was anxious to see Dortmund in champions league, it's such a bright young team, but without Sahin they're not the same team anymore.

@Zlatan: you say they haven't done bad? Dude, they spent hundred of millions of euros (most of it from bank loans, they don't even have the money), buying a ridiculous amount of players. Do they really need Sahin? They have Ozil, Ronaldo, Kaka, Canales, Granero, etc. Why not use their talents instead of just buying any player that crosses their mind
Mackiznay (Manchester City) 5 years ago
I am crushed if Tevez goes to Inter. Why would he want to do that!?!?!?!? Move to a shittier league onto a team already overflowing with talent. He isn't really needed there. He can be a hero in Manchester or follow behind Eto'o for everthing. I love Tevez, but Eto'o will outplay him.

City has talent but we need the hero in Tevez

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could receive up to 40m in transfer funds at the end of the season. The summer transfer window could prove to be a very busy one for the Gunners espcially if they end their sixth season in a row without a trophy. The funds provided by new owner Stan Kroenke will cover transfer fees as well of wages however Arsenal will add any money they receive from player sales in the transfer window.

Wengner will look to solve his defensive problems in the summer and players such as Bolton's Gary Cahill and wonderkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Gael Clichy could be leaving as contract talks with the clubs have not gone very well. However it appears that Wenger will rely on youngster Kieron Gibbs to fill his slot in the first team next season
KingHarryKewell (Liverpool) 5 years ago
There's a bit of a tug-of-war over Gary Cahill of late - apparently Liverpool's interested in the kid, and I think Man United and Tottenham are too. He's a great young defender, and would be an asset for any team. Will be interesting as to see where he's at next season, be it still at Bolton or elsewhere
FootyRulz (Chelsea) 5 years ago
Inter Milan could be planning a 65m double swoop Tottenham Hotspurs players Gareth Bale and Luka Modric. The reigning Serie A champions look to rebuild their ageing squad during the summer window and see the duo as ideal signings. Manager Leonardo has been a long time admirer of both talents was very impressed by what he saw from them in the Champions League. The Italian club believe that they could have a realistic chance of signing Bale and Modric should Spurs fail to qualify 4th. Spurs manager Harry Redknaap doesn't want to sell any of his stars in the summer however club chairman Daniel Levy has already said that the club will have to reduce the wage bill in the summer should Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League next season. Bale has admitted in the past that he has been tempted to leave the club although he insists that he is happy at White Hart Lane. Modric has expressed his desire to stay with the London club however Inter could lure both players to join for the Champions League football next season should Spurs fail to qualify for it.

I will let you in to a little secret bale will be staying in england for a good few years yet I think if he does go from spurs it will be to Man UTD as its not a london club and fergie has already shown an intrest and spurs and Man UTD have good trade relations. But I personally feel he will stay cause harry will ask him to - unless the deal is lucractive
Messsssssssssi (Barcelona) 5 years ago
I really doubt bale will be leaving england.... English footballers or even any footballer from the UK dream of playing in the EPL. EPL is arguably the most prestigious and leaving it to go plan in italy (even though inter are a great team) wouldnt make much sense. Theres a reason you can count the number of English players in Serie A on your hand
