Transfer Talk: David Moyes had better keep his phone on and Mourinho set to buy everyone

David Moyes is facing a lot of speculation over who he will buy and sell this summer and one player strongly moved with a move away is Nani.


David Moyes is facing a lot of speculation over who he will buy and sell this summer and one player strongly moved with a move away is Nani.

The United winger is consistently inconsistent and a huge source of frustration at Old Trafford and has been linked with moves to Russia for the past 12 months. Well according The Sun, the new boss hasn’t spoken to the Portuguese man yet since taking over, but that will all change tomorrow.

They have it on good authority- they always do – that he is to call Moyes tomorrow and discover what future he has, if any. So make sure you are in good reception David, the Michael Jackson look-a-like will be on the blower tomorrow looking for answers.

Roberto Martinez has told his predecessor that Marouane Fellaini is going nowhere, while Ronaldo continues to be linked with a move back to Old Trafford. Most likely his agent throwing the cat among the pigeons ahead of contract negotiations with Real Madrid.

One man who will be going toe-to-toe with Moyes this season will be The Special One and he has been linked with more players than QPR’s playing squad of last season. Edinson Cavani for £40 million and Thibault Courtois going the other direction(The Daily Mail), Xabi Alonso (The Sunday Telegraph) and Mario Gomez (The Sunday Express) are just some of the names being touted, while The Daily Star believe he will raid former club Porto for their £20 million-rated  defender Eliaquim Mangala. They state that Mourinho wants Mangala to be the ‘new John Terry’. Not sure how the married, and those in relationships in the Chelsea squad, would feel about that description.

The Daily Star say that the growing number of former Premier League players at Galatasaray could be increased further with the Turkish club thought to be willing to pay £12 million for Arsenal striker Gervinho. No, it’s not April the 1st and you did read that right. If Arsene Wenger manages to bring in that sum of money for the striker, it would represent one of his best bits of business in the transfer market. Lukasz Fabianski could also be going to Turkey, with Besiktas interested in the Polish goalkeeper.

According to The Sun, Southampton have moved ahead of Liverpool and AC Milan in the race for Lyon defender Dejan Lovren. We know that the Reds and Milan are not the forces they once were with a period of rebuilding at both clubs, but would Lovren really choose St. Marys ahead of Anfield or the San Siro? We can almost smell the huge agent’s fee from here.

Monaco will turn their attention to Gael Clichy if they can’t tempt former player Patrice Evra from Old Trafford, Roberto Martinez is lining up a £10 million move for former player Victor Moses while Simon Mignolet is again heavily linked with a  move to Liverpool as a replacement for Pepe Reina.
