The world of Premiership transfer rumours is full of nonsense, but some nonsense is more interesting that the other nonsense. Hereâ€™s our opinion on some of that more interesting nonsenseâ€¦ and if you have any thoughts, pop em in the comments.
Dimitar Berbatov is attracting interest from Newcastle United who, it’s being claimed, he supported as a boy.
CaughtOffside Says: If there’s one thing we’d be surprised to learn about young children growing up in Bulgaria, it’s that they supported Newcastle. A move to Newcastle would be no less than a sideways one for Berbatov, so we really can’t see this one getting off the ground.
Cristiano Ronaldo will gladly stay at Manchester United, but only if they meet his demands of Â£120,000 a week.
CaughtOffside Says: While he’s easily matched David Beckham in realising when the camera is going to be on him, and milking it for everything it’s worth, he’s also matched if not surpassed his ability to win a match. Worth every penny.
Fergie also wants Aldo Duscher.
CaughtOffside Says: Fergsuon may have just realised he put an extra zero on that bid for Owen Hargreaves.
Roberto Carlos will leave Real Madrid and sign one last moneyspinning contract in the Quatar league.
CaughtOffside Says: All respect to Brazil and Real Madrid, but the big thighed left back has been past it for a few years now. Chelsea must be glad they dodged this bullet.
Everton are after Wolves 21 year old striker Michael Kightly.
CaughtOffside Says: Joleon Lescott has done OK for Everton this year. Maybe if another Championship (and Wolves) player successfully steps up to the Premiership then the supply lines from the lower leagues will re-open and all will be right with the world again.
Fulham will try and land Barcelona’s Lilian Thuram at the end of the season.
CaughtOffside Says: Is it just us, or are Fulham getting very ambitious? Good luck to them though. Maybe Thuram and Montella become ace friends while in Serie A. More likely, this is bollocks.
PSV’s Arsenal-conquering coach Ronald Koeman could be the man to replace Jose Mourinho at Chelsea this summer.
CaughtOffside Says: Koeman seems to have a jinx on English clubs and England in general (Koeman’s free kick helped doom Graham Taylor’s ill-fated attempt to qualify for the 94 World Cup). So this will either buck the trend or hilariously send Chelsea towards relegation. Not quite sure which, though.
