It appears that despite the fact that Tottenham have announced that they will report Liverpool for their conduct in the race for their first class Irish striker, this source believes the deal will be done and dusted by next week and Rafa will have himself a great partner for Torres!
ROBBIE KEANE will become a Liverpool player next week – as Tottenham prepared to report the club to the authorities for their “disgraceful” conduct during the transfer saga.
Keane’s much-touted move from Spurs has been all but sealed, with only the formalities to be completed.
Spurs manager Juande Ramos intimated earlier this week that the White Hart Lane club would be willing to sell the 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international in an attempt to balance the books.
And Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will be delighted at the capture of his main striking target to replace the departed Peter Crouch.
The deal could eventually cost Liverpool up to £20million given various add-ons and incentives. (Liverpool Daily Post)
Not sure where the source above got the impression that Ramos had resigned himself to losing Keane but if that is indeed the case then this deal could well occur. Daniel Levy has made his thoughts on this and the Berbatov saga very clear and he has publicly stated time and again that he has no desire to sell either of the club’s world class strikers, I guess the only problem for the Tottenham chairman comes when or indeed if, it becomes clear that either marksman makes it clear they want to leave. Many seem to think that the Berbatov sale to Man United is only pending a bid that suits the London club as the Bulgarian has made it clear he wants to leave White Hart Lane, however Robbie Keane has announced that he has no intention of leaving the club, not least because he can see just how much potential they have under Juande Ramos. Do Liverpool fans think they will sign Keane? Do Spurs fans think that the club will keep both of their top strikers or are they of the belief that one or both will leave before the new season gets underway?
