Manchester City in for Luka Modric
The Daily Mail are claiming they are ‘set to spark a three-way auction’ with a £30m bid for the Tottenham playmaker. And they are fighting with their neighbours Manchester United over who will win the transfer auction for the Tottenham man. With Champions League football secured at Eastlands, Modric might consider a move to Manchester City in the summer.
Along with Champions League football, Manchester City are set to increase the Croatian’s wages up to around 16o,ooo pounds a week. So well, should Modric move to Manchester City or wait for a better bid from Manchester United? I personally think that he should wait on Manchester United.
Besiktas set to sign Manchester United and Arsenal strikers
The two are in fact Manchester United’s Bebe and Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner. Both are in some way or another are unsettled at their respective clubs and Besiktas apparently have some cash that they have inherited from somewhere. A loan deal for Bebe looks imminent, with an option of a 2 million pound buy-out of his contract at the end of his year with the Turkish giants.
Bendtner on the other hand, is set to move there as well, after The Daily Mirror has reported that Besiktas have come in with a mega bid of 12 million pounds for the Danish striker.
Liverpool Sign (another) Jones
After missing out on Phil Jones, Liverpool have sealed the signing of Plymouth centerback Lloyd Jones. Apparently, he impressed Liverpool FC scouts during a short trial with the Merseyside club. Phil Jones’ namesake is in fact 15 years old, and although he hasn’t even made his name with Plymouth, he is reported to have ‘immense talent’.
So I certainly hope that’s a good deal. So that’s the end of today’s paper round, so come back tomorrow for more! (if I’m not busy XD)
