THIS transfer deadline day looks like it could be a stormer – because some of the biggest deals of the summer are reportedly all lined up and ready to go.
Top of the pile when it comes to transfer business has to be the Real Madrid slow motion swoop for Tottenham’s Gareth Bale.
If this deal doesn’t go through I’ll eat my dubious hot pink baseball cap.
Of course, rumour has it that this deal will allow Madrid to sell Di Maria to Arsenal – not an all-but-done deal, sure, but highly likely nonetheless.
And we’re being told this morning by the Belgian media that be-Afroed powerhouse Marouane Fellaini has been told he has played his last game for Everton and can leave for Manchester United.
Whether Leighton Baines leaves is not quite so certain, but if they both do, Everton will surely be in the market for last-minute replacements.
Add to this that Manchester City boss Pelligrini said outright yesterday that he plans to bring in one more player, and you have the recipe for a big-spending deadline day tomorrow.
Of course, follow Goaltastic tomorrow for news and views on Transfer Deadline Day.
SINCE Roy “Woy” Hodgson left Craven Cottage for Liverpool, Mohamed Al-Fayed has been looking to find Fulham a new boss.
A deal fell through for Ajax gaffer Martin Jol, leaving nobody at the helm as the club approaches the Premier League season opener against Bolton.
According to reports the chairman will not be rushed into an appointment and will make a decision “as and when he sees necessary” – but Goaltastic can offer Al-Fayed a lifeline.
Forget favourites like Glenn Hoddle, Kevin Keegan, Manuel Pelligrini and Chris Coleman, I’ll do it.
I may not have any experience managing a football club in reality, but I have a mean Championship Manager track record, and I’m a lot cheaper than Sven Goran Eriksson.
I’ve sent over my CV tonight.
