So our famous gossip column is back, with the focus being shifter from Arsenal and Liverpool to the Manchester side, so let’s get straight to the rumours.
SNEIJDER TO MANCHESTER?
‘Manchester United target Sneijder given £85m price tag’ is the headline that is reported by The People as they have added the potential salary of the Dutchman, that being around 10 million a year for 5 years.
What The People are trying to say is that the Glazers are unlikely to spend that amount of money so ‘that may leave the field clear for City’. Is Sneijder REALLY heading to the Premier League?
SANCHEZ TO MANCHESTER?
Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez has thrown his transfer to Manchester City in the balance after the Sunday Telegraph claimed that his representatives met with both Manchester clubs as Sir Alex Ferguson personally requested that United try to do a deal with the Chilean man.
The Italian club are resigned to losing Sanchez this summer and will receive around £26.5m for the player, who is said to prefer the move to the red side of Manchester.
The Sunday Telegraph describe this as ‘a severe blow to City, who regarded Sanchez as their key summer signing’.
CAHILL TO MANCHESTER?
Gary Cahill is apparently available for the mere price of 15 million pounds in the summer and it seems Roberto Mancini is as unconvinced by Joleon Lescott’s poor performances and will move for Cahill this summer (according to the News of the World, anyway) with Shaun Wright-Phillips said to be being offered as a makeweight in the deal.
