A BIT of an oddity for you here – a long running transfer story is set to actually come to fruition this week with Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero set to finalise a £38m move to Manchester City.
The 23-year-old Argentina international was at City’s Carrington training ground this morning having cut short a holiday in his homeland to fly in to finalise contract negotiations and undergo a medical.
Aguero, the son-in-law of Diego Maradona, said: “Just arrived in Manchester to finalise the details of signing with City.
“Everything is going very well!”
That’s how it’s done, Tevez/Fabregas/Sneijder et al.
GOD bless you Twitter!
It may be a bit of a poorly kept secret, but Manchester United striker Frederico Macheda has let out a leak from inside Old Trafford that Wesley Sneijder’s unveiling could be imminent.
The Italian took to the social networking site to say he hopes to see Inter Milan’s Dutch playmaker joining the club on their US tour very soon… before hastily deleting it again.
An official confirmation will be with us before the weekend, says Goaltastic.
MANCHESTER United’s Players’ Player of the Year Nani is set to be dangled like a worm on a hook in an attempt to land Wesley Sneijder.
The Inter Milan man is a top target for the Red Devils – and with the expected arrival a surplus of wingers is developing at Old Trafford.
As a result the Portuguese player Nani, despite being voted the best player in the team last season, could become a makeweight in a deal to land the £35m-rated Dutch midfielder who is wanted to pull the strings in United’s team.
REPORTS today suggest that red hot Red Devil Nani may be heading out of Old Trafford this summer – as a makeweight in a deal to sign Wesley Sneijder.
After becoming Manchester United’s player of the season to date, the constant threat of the Portuguese player is being coveted by the Italian giants.
And with Sneijder a long-term target of Sir Alex Ferguson to replace Paul Scholes’ midifeld string-pulling, the two clubs could be playing swapsies come the summer.
