Wenger needs to stop dicking around about Suarez and get Higuain wrapped up. I assume it's just gamesmanship to force Madrid's hand, but still. Ugh.

If this Man Utd bid for Fabregas is a real thing, we should be trying to get him back on board too.

I honestly have no idea what Wenger's doing, he lowballs Madrid for Higuain and then offers above their asking price to Liverpool for Suarez in another lowball offer. The Rooney offer was another terribly low one. Furthermore, after their bid for Sylvain Grenier was rejected he reupped his Lyon contract also ruling him out.

PSG basically said Cavani will be replacing Ibrahimovic. A team somewhere is going to get a good striker provided that they can feed him balls.

despite vilanova's quote denying he's for sale sky sports are sticking to their guns that fabregas is being monitored by the top 4. it'd be worth the move though to see arsenal fans commit public japanese ritual suicide.

BTW PSG have spent 190m euro's on their last signings of Thiago Silva, Ibra, Lucas Moura, Cavani & Marquinhos.

And another funny thing: City paid Maicon 2mil to leave and go to Roma :lol:

Don't Arsenal have a buy-back clause on Fabregas?

to do that arsenal will need to fork the 25m to take him back. and currently it looks like he's more interest in a striker than another midfielder.

it was also stated that the 50% to arsenal clause thing is bullshit by barca.

Strootman to Roma screams DDR replacement to me. The Moyes Rooney quotes were WTF and now Rooney is confused at the way he has been treated. More like confused at why this transfer request didn't get him a wage hike like last time

Been a pretty busy night since I went to sleep on actual stuff that happened that aren't rumors :lol:

BBC reporting that CheLsea bid Mata or Luiz + 10mil for Rooney.

Mata + cash seems like a steal.

The Guardian reckon that Barca will sell Fabregas to United because they need the money, which is interesting.

Meanwhile, any worries I may have had about Moyes being a potential soft touch have been allayed by his tough treatment of Rooney. I

I believe they do have a fair bit of debt and the Neymar buy was massive. Plus they usually avoid massive buys. Possible.

I'd say Mata + 10mill is a sweet deal. I'd have tried going to Barca with the notion of a straight swap, but if they need cash then that's unlikely.

Do any of these swap deals ever actually happen outside of Football Manager?
