  • Football transfer rumours: Perisic and Dybala to Manchester United?

    Today’s fluff would like to grow apple trees and honey bees The same player is on the front cover of the Spanish sport newspapers Marca, AS and Mundo Deportivo, and also on the back pages of most British nationals, and it’s Gareth Bale – or “Gareth Sale” as AS have it. According to Mundo Deportivo, Real have offered the Welshman and £90m to Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar; Marca say he is heading to China, where he has offers from two teams; AS insists he has been offered to PSG, Manchester...

  • Football transfer rumours: Maguire to Manchester United for £80m?

    Today’s fluff is still in awe Back to reality, then. After an extraordinary sporting weekend, at least talk of a record-breaking £80m move to Manchester United for Harry Maguire is not just rumbling on but hotting up, with suggestions in some quarters that a deal is in place for a player affectionately known as “Slabhead”. The Leicester City centre-back supposedly has his heart set on a summer switch but his club want a dizzying world-record fee for the defender, and will force United to eclipse...

  • Football transfer rumours: Diego Costa heading for Everton?

    Today’s gossip came from the foot of our stairs Arsenal are not giving up on signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. As well as that derisory/prudent £40m initial bid for the winger, they are prepared to offer three players they value as worth another £40m into the deal. Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson may be running out at the Selhurst Colosseum if a deal now worth £80m in book value goes through. Palace, meanwhile, would prefer £70m straight out if they are to lose their...

  • Football rumours: John Terry to take over at Newcastle United?

    Today’s tell-all is weighing up its options A penny for John Terry’s thoughts. It only took one season in the Derby dugout for his old mucker Frank Lampard to be summoned back to Stamford Bridge for the top job. And that was after missing out on promotion to an Aston Villa side inspired, of course, by JT. The former England captain has been cutting his teeth as an assistant to Villa’s Dean Smith but must have looked on with a tinge of envy as Lampard was unveiled by Chelsea last week at the age...

  • Football transfer rumours: Ryan Sessegnon to sign for Tottenham?

    Today’s tell-all shot a man in Reno just to watch him die After a two-window hiatus in which they failed to sign a single new player, Tottenham are waving their chequebook about with abandon as they go about reinvigorating an understandably jaded squad for the coming season. The signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds United preceded the loudly trumpeted arrival of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for a club record £55m on Tuesday and now the Mirror is reporting that Spurs are “highly likely” to bring in...

  • Football transfer rumours: Eriksen to replace Pogba at Manchester United?

    This gossip must be living in paradise Chinese Super League clubs Beijing Guoan, Jiangsu Suning and Shanghai Shenhua have no end of ambition. They’re banking on the fact that Gareth Bale’s own horizons have run out. Though to be fair, the offers look pretty fine to us, including benefits such as a luxury pad, lucrative image rights, regular first-class flights back home, and a manager that doesn’t think he’s a complete waste of space. We say go for it. Bale’s departure would allow Real to sign...
