Manchester United’s Bebe Moves to Turkey on Loan Deal


Just under a year ago, Manchester United declared that they were signing a promising young player in Bebe on a £7.4m transfer deal in the summer, and his Manchester adventure certainly hasn’t go to plan.

Bebe was signed from Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes in a deal that left Manchester United fans wondering how talented the player actually was, but in all reality, firstly, he wasn’t ever worth that much, and secondly, Manchester United fans were skeptical, reason being that he was sold little more than 300k just a year before that.

Bebe was however keen on proving the massive price tag that Manchester United have invested in him, but in all reality, he was simply a big flop and a horrible signing by the Red Devils. Just seven first team appearances this term, most of which he has disappointed in, Bebe is moving to Besiktas on a loan deal.

The deal includes an option for Besiktas to permanently seal the deal in the following summer, where they could be buying the winger for a price for 2 million pounds, which means that Manchester United would make a 5.4 million pounds loss should the deal be a reality next season.

Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool 2011/12 Kits: All of them right here [PHOTOS]


A special issue here on TLFs, with me showing you guys what EVERYONE is wearing for next season. A few interesting bits and blobs, so let’s get to it!

Arsenal

Going in alphabetical order here and Arsenal have pretty interesting kits for next season, with perhaps their goalkeeper jersey being my personal favourite. The home kit has a (sort of) redesigned crest.  Click on the photo itself for viewing the kits in it’s full glory. Want it? You can head right over to Arsenal.com to pre-order/order your kit. The away kit is also pretty interesting , being pretty bold, with it being bold and black.

 

Chelsea FC

Continuing on with Chelsea’s new kit, and a very notable change in this season’s kit, with them removing the red colour collar from their shirt from this season. They made that bit white and it looks pretty good. Their away kit, well, it looks like either having solar panels or being a goalpost, well, you guys decide. As again, click on the photos to see them in their full glory.

Liverpool FC

For all you people asking over and over and over again, Liverpool’s home kit will in fact be the same for this season, with it set to totally change next year, with Warrior Sports set to take over at the production line at Merseyside for next season on a mega deal. And their new away kit is pretty cool, and here’s a stat about it: the kit has already broken the record for revenue from a single away shirt for all-time. Now that’s a stat. As again, click on the image for the full sized image.

Manchester United

Manchester United have a pretty neat home jersey for this season and it does look like something that the Red Devil fans out there will like. Their away kit is rather interesting, I myself am not really sure whether I like or dislike it. It’s pretty interesting, with a bold pattern of blue and black. Well, check it out in all it’s glory by clicking on it for the full sized image!

The June 13th Transfer Gossip


Well, a rather early release of our transfer gossip column, but I guess I had the time today, so I thought my as well get it out of the way earlier in the day.

So let’s get straight to it!

All You Need to know about the Phil Jones Transfer Deal

This deal really should have been concluded a long time ago, Manchester United paid the release clause, Jones did a medical with them, and the Blackburn defender has agreed the basic personal terms of the deal. So that’s all the makings of a transfer, right? NO.

Well, Liverpool apparently came in with a bid of 22 million pounds for the English defender. Now that’s some money there, and that is way over the 16.5 million that Manchester United paid to trigger the release clause. So Blackburn’s owners are now trying to sell their prized asset for as much money as possible.

Rovers are unhappy that United – and other clubs – were aware of a ‘price clause’ in Jones’s contract. The Rovers regime were willing to stand firm and make Jones stay with them and see out the rest of his contract, which still has four years to run.

United believe they have done nothing wrong but could offer more money to speed up the transfer.

Today’s Issue of The Daily Mirror

Manchester United have indeed increased their offer to just over 20 million pounds and it indeed looks like enough to push the deal through for Blackburn to sell. Now that’s quite a lot of cash for a rather overrated young centerback, don’t you think?

And Sanchez

With Phil Jones’ transfer saga already put away (for now), we turn our attentions to Alexis Sanchez, the Udinese winger. Apparently, Manchester United are still hoping to beat Barcelona to the prize, which is Sanchez. Now here’s a line from The Daily Mail:

Manchester United are still hoping to pip Barcelona for Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez.

Today’s Issue of The Daily Mail

And chances of this deal happening has increased for the Manchester club following Barcelona’s signing of a right sided winger just yesterday night, with that being Kiko Femenia from Hercules.

And Away from Manchester United, Neymar’s Developments

Could potentially be awarded the “Most similar transfer to Fernando Torres’ transfer” transfer in the summer. It looks like Chelsea are set to (finally) meet the asking price of Santos as apparently, the Metro has claimed that Abramovic and the men at Brazil are very close to an agreement.

The original asking price of Neymar was in fact around 40 million pounds, however that has been dropped by Santos chiefs following perhaps suggesting the impossibility of a move happen should the fee be that high. Well, so that’s done and dusted.

Money’s not an issue for Nasri Leaving Anymore

Well, let me get this clear, that this move has not been made by Arsene Wenger. Although that can already be easily understood, with Arsene Wenger normally more than reluctant to use the resources available to him to their full. Two examples being contract issues: Clichy and Nasri.

Stan Kroenke has come out with a statement claiming that he will practically offer Arsenal’s French contract rebel (Nasri, not Clichy) whatever he wants to keep him at The Emirates. This comes amid interest from their rivals Manchester United.

That’s it for today guys, so come back tomorrow for more!

The June 12th Transfer Gossip


Sorry about yesterday, had some things that I had to do over yesterday, and as a result, no transfer rumour column yesterday, but I’m back today!

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)

Manchester United and Arsenal Strikers to move to Besiktas


It looks like two unsettled strikers in the Premier League, Manchester United’s Bebe and Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner, will sign for Turkish side Besiktas in the summer.

Well, Bendtner has already admitted that he is “100% certain” of leaving the Gunners this summer, and we were pretty much certain that he was heading to the Bundesliga, but it looks like Besiktas hve come in with a very interesting proposition today. The twist is that Besiktas have come up with an offer for the player which Arsenal can’t seem to refuse.

The Daily Mirror have reported that the Turkish club have come in with a bid with a fee in the region of 12 million pounds and are hopeful they will be able to whisk the Dane away from the Emirates. What has to go down in consideration though is whether Bendtner himself actually wants this move. We all know that he holds himself to high esteem, with him even claiming just less than a month ago that he would like to move to Barcelona, so it will be interesting to see if he wants this move at all.

And now to potentially the worst signing of last summer: Manchester United’s Bebe. The lost striker is set for a move to the Turkish giants as well, and Manchester United could see themselves losing 5 million pounds in two years as they have almost come to an agreement with Besiktas that sees Bebe move to the Turkish giants on a season loan. At the end of that one season, Besiktas will have an option of buying him for a £2m cut-price transfer next summer. Flop.

So what do you guys think of these transfer developments? Bendtner should stay? Bebe should be given a few more years? Thoughts can go to the comments section below.

The 11th June Transfer Gossip


It’s another day of transfer gossip and after a tiring day like this one, I am just as excited as you guys to see what’s in store, what I research surprises me!

Arsenal Almost Certain of signing (another) teenager

According to a ‘Mirror Exclusive’ in of course, the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to complete the signing of long term transfer target Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain….. for a hefty fee of 12 million pounds. The question now is, how did English youngsters such costing so much? First Henderson, then Jones, now Chamberlain, and I’m very sure that we’re going to see a huge move for Ipswich Town’s Connor Wickham very soon. Wow, world gone mad.

Apparently, Arsene Wenger is supposedly upset after losing two battles for English youngsters and he wants to sign Chamberlain quickly to ensure that he is not snatched away by Manchester United. Well, Chamberlain is eager to go to Arsenal, apparently, here’s what he said last month:

To develop at a place like Arsenal can’t be a bad thing. In my eyes, I’d like him to go there as soon as possible, and continue his development

Chamberlain claimed last month

Goodbye Kuszczak?

Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has resigned himself to starting life at another Premier League club after making just seven appearances as Edwin Van Der Sar’s deputy last season and the Old Trafford club signing Atletico Madrid’s David de Gea.

The Sun

Well, I guess that’s just The Sun reiterating the obvious, with pretty much everyone except De Gea himself realizing the inevitability of this pending move to the Red Devils. I mean, just move already!

Liverpool Bid 5 million pounds for Clichy

Liverpool have launched a 5 million pound bid for Arsenal left back Gael Clichy. 20 million pounds for Henderson, 5 million pounds for Clichy? The maths must be wrong somewhere along the lines, because I think that, as a Liverpool fan, a great deal for us should Arsenal be tempted to sell.

Well, for more on that, click  here

More Fabregas Gossip

MundoDeportivo.com claims that Wenger has told Fabregas: “I will let you go to Barcelona or Real Madrid, but not to the Premier League.” Well, I’m very sure that he in fact doesn’t want to go to the Premier League anyway, so to the list of the painfully obvious. I personally think that there is only one place other than Arsenal he belongs, that’s Barcelona, and second point I’d like to make, I’m pretty sure NOONE (except Man City) will manage to buy him anyway, with AW always putting up unrealistic transfer valuations.
