First it was Chelsea fans and now it seems that both Manchester United and Tottenham supporters are also unhappy with Ligue 1 newcomers Monaco here in the Football Transfer Tavern given the story in IBTimes.
The mega-rich French outfit have just secured their place back in Ligue 1 under Claudio Ranieri’s guidance and are determined to make more of a mark this time round. Having already been linked with a huge bid for Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, the club are not yet content and have even been linked with a move for Manchester City transfer target Isco of Malaga.
The latest pair the club from the Principality have been linked with in a 70 million euro swoop are Porto’s Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez, both of whom have been strongly linked with moves to the Premier League. Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs are long-term admirers of Moutinho and have been linked with a move for him constantly across the past few transfer windows and were thought to be close to a deal last summer. Now it seems Monaco fancy the midfielder and are willing to throw a huge wad of money at the potential deal.
Not only that but United target Rodriguez is also on their radar – something which will go down about as well as Luis Suarez at Old Trafford given the fact that United have long eyed a bid for the Colombian international and have spent time following and watching the player, especially this season. Of course United do have money but not on the scale of Russian billionaire backed Monaco and may have to rely on their success and reputation to lure the player to Old Trafford over a move to Stade Louis II.
Can Monaco trump their transfer rivals and pull off a double swoop for the Porto pair? Rate this rumour below.
