Sundae Supplement: Would Roo believe who wants to leave Old Trafford and Arsenal have a big-money target
Wayne Rooney may have had a hand in United’s victory over Swansea, but even the dog on the street could tell he didn’t look like a happy camper.
After being sprung from the bench, Rooney played his part with the second-half goals, though his body language seemed to indicate a man not entirely happy with his lot. Not that we have a Degree in psychology of course, but the transfer rumours were only further fuelled and the papers haven’t disappointed this morning.
The Sunday Times say that Chelski will cough up £40 million and offer £300,000 a week to get their man, despite the assurances from the Red Devils that he is not for sale at any price. That is indeed some cough, they may need to check that out.
A number of others are suggesting that while Stamford Bridge is his preferred destination, Arsenal is his ‘contingency’ plan. Not sure if Wazza saw what happened at the Emirates yesterday, or indeed if the Gunners would be happy to be a fall-back option.
The papers seem to be focusing more on players Moyes will be bringing in rather than shipping out, with Mundo Deportivo claiming a double raid on Real Madrid is on the cards, with Mesut Ozil and Kaka linked to the Premier League champions. The Sunday Mirror is again saying that Marouane Fellaini is a top of the shopping list, though his release clause has now expired.
With the financial shi* hitting the fan at Anzhi, Samuel Eto’o has emerged as target for his former club Inter Milan (Daily Star). The Cameroonian was though to be on Jose Mourinho’s wish-list, but could face competition from his former club. Willian is still being courted by Tottenham (Sunday People), despite only recently shelling out for Soldado.
Arda Turan could be playing in England sooner rather than later
AS is Spain says that Atletico Madrid’s highly-rated Arda Turan could be set for a move to England. The playmaker has caught the attention of Liverpool and Arsenal, and the 26 year-old’s agent has said that a move to the Premier League is “probable”. Please, don’t give too much away.
Arsenal had a miserable start to the campaign yesterday and there has been widespread clamour for Arsene Wenger to dispense with his ‘short hands, deep pockets’ approach. Should he want to bring Swansea striker Michu to the Emirates, as the Sunday Mirror claim, he will have to part with £25 million, while Micah Richards is also on the radar.
Time will tell if Wenger does put a serious dent on the coffers in North London.
