Today’s rumours endeavour to prepare us all for a brutal transfer onslaught come D-Day!
The most absurd, chaotic and magical day in the football calendar arrives tomorrow, with supporters everywhere pumped and ready to welcome the next whatshisface into their clubs, before realising that it wasn’t worth it after all.
Forever irritating football lovers everywhere, Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez finds himself again at the centre of the largest transfer storm, with PSG, AC and Inter Milan all failing in bids to snare the sulkly South American.
That’s why The Mirror claims Liverpool are about to kindly offer City the opportunity to give them Tevez on loan, as long as the deal is done before the windows close.
It’s a new curve ball for Dalglish to swipe at, having recently rejected rumours he’s offered £35 Million dead weight Andy Carroll in exchange for the diminutive outcast.
The Evening Standard does its best to dispel the notion of miracles, labelling a reunion between Tevez and Championship leaders West Ham as “Unlikely.”
The hopeful Hammers could still sign their former talisman under the emergency loan system after D-Day, and a club source rates their chances as high as “one per cent.”
Though their optimism is admirable, it’s hard to imagine Tevez lining up alongside Carlton Cole come February. Fans across the country will however be hoping that this old wheezing dog of a transfer fiasco is put down once and for all, and that serial slime balls Joorabchian and Tevez find a new home to wreck.
Meanwhile a busy QPR are doing everything in their power to ensure Jay Bothrooyd isn’t a regular starter, with The People claiming the club are planning a late double swoop for Tottenham spare parts Sabastien Bassong and Steven Pienaar.
Manager Mark Hughes is known to be in the market for a capable defender, after inheriting disastrous duo Anton Ferdinand and Danny Gabbidon, whilst Pienaar would represent something of a coup for the Premier League strugglers. Rangers are however struggling to meet Spurs current valuation, and may have to make do with recent purchase Nedum Onouha.
Hughes has also been shopping in the journey man section, with Djibril Cisse close to making a return to England. Skysports reveals that Lazio are in talks with QPR over the 30 year old striker, who has played for four clubs in the past four seasons.
Hughes mischievously remarked “We are looking at that situation and we will try and progress on that.”
The French international, who has one league goal to his name this term, should be able to fire the goals required to keep Rangers afloat.
So with hours to go before that fateful day, here’s to the hope we share that our club gets their own Fernando Torres. That we can bask in the afterglow of that last gasp capture, if only for a few weeks.
