HARRY REDKNAPP HAS decided that the transfer market is officially insane, after learning that Giuseppe Rossi was valued at £30m.
Are Damien Duff’s Fulham days numbered? The club have launched a bid for Dutch winger Wesley Verhoek – Duff’s younger, fitter and undoubtedly better-looking equivalent.
Nani could be on his way to Bayern Munich having presumably infuriated Alex Ferguson one time too many with his inability to deliver a final ball.
Dimitar Berbatov has said he doesn’t want to leave Man United, however he may be dragged kicking and screaming (in a rare show of emotion) by Paris St Germain.
Chelsea could launch a fresh bid for Luka Modric, which Tottenham will undoubtedly turn down despite what Kevin Bond says, leading (as these transfer sagas always do) to some desperate negotiations in the dying minutes before the transfer window closes.
Right now though, the clubs are happy to sit back and relax.
Meanwhile, the poor man’s Modric, beloved by mid-table clubs – Zoltan Gera - has made the move from Fulham to West Brom, in what is possibly the most ‘meh’ transfer of the summer.
Finally, Liverpool owner John W Henry hasn’t provoked anyone for a while, so he’s decided to say what a disappointment it would be if the club finish outside of the top 4.
John, I hate to break this to you, but there are probably at least four teams in better stead than Liverpool are this season.
He does have some courage though, talking behind the back of a man with as fearsome a reputation as Kenny Dalglish.
