Old Trafford outfit subject of very loud ‘come and get me’ plea from Ajax man.
Mesut Ozil has stated that he wishes to stay at Werder Bremen, despite being linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs.
However, the World Cup Golden Ball nominee has insisted he will stay put next season, claiming that he wants to honour his contract, which expires in 2011.
“Bremen want me to fulfil the contract and so do I,” he told Bild.
“I have always said that I want to fulfil my contract, that is important to me.” (Sky Sports)
Sevilla sporting director Ramon Rodriguez believes Luis Fabiano will snub AC Milan in favour of a stay at Sanchez Pizjuan.
The 29-year-old has hinted that a move to Milan or Manchester United would be of particular appeal, but neither club, according to Rodriguez, have been in contact over his signature.
“I spoke to Luis almost every day when he was in South Africa and his main, and I believe only, idea is to remain at Sevilla,” he said. (Sky Sports)
Luis Suarez has admitted he would like to move to the Premier League in the future, touting Manchester United and Tottenham as possible suitors.
“I am not going to make any secret of my admiration for the Premier League,” he told the Daily Star on Sunday.
“Manchester United are a great side and, along with Real Madrid are the most prestigious club in the world,” Suarez added.
“You know if you join Manchester United and are there for any length of time you will win things. (Sky Sports)
So it appears that a number of high profile targets are digging their heels in and staying put but Luis Suarez on the other hand is being about as subtle as a sledgehammer in his attempts to secure a move away from Ajax. Manchester United seemingly being one of his top choices of potential moves.
Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently a fan and if he is given a decent amount of transfer cash by the club then perhaps he will make a move for the Uruguayan who impressed at the World Cup which he will forever be more remembered for a handball rather than his efforts at the right end of the pitch.
Apparently Ajax will listen to offers of around £28m for the 23 year old but perhaps they could be bargained with, especially if the striker pushes for a move, which seems highly likely. He could work well alongside Wayne Rooney and is lethal around the penalty area.
Some may feel that having done his scoring in the relatively average Dutch Eredivisie it’s hard to gauge what he is capable of, but similar claims were made about Ruud Van Nistlerooy. Also factor in his form in European football, 12 goals in 23 starts, and he looks an even better prospect.
