Manchester United will be unable to renew their loan deal for striker Carlos Tevez and the only way the Red Devils can keep the Argentine is to buy him – at an asking price of £32m. (The Sun)
From the nothing new department we have the fact Manchester United have to pay £32m and have shown little interest in doing so at this point. United must be gambling on the fact that another team won’t be willingly to meet Tevez’s £32m price tag so they can then swoop in and sign him for less.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are attempting to prise away Manchester United’s 15-year-old midfield youngster Kenji Gorre, who is recognised as one of the best young talents coming through the Old Trafford academy. (Daily Mail)
If I was a highly touted young player I’d stay far away for Chelsea. The Chelsea youth system hasn’t produced a decent player since John Terry.
Newcastle defender Sebastien Bassong is set to quit the club for Arsenal at the end of the season. (The Sun)
Maybe Bassong will be the one who can get along with William Gallas.
Stoke striker Dave Kitson wants to make his loan move to former club Reading permanent. (Daily Star)
I’m sure Stoke would love to make Kitson’s move permanent since he has been a non factor for Stoke this year. If Kitson helps Reading back into the EPL this loan move becomes permanent anyway.
Blackburn’s Dutch defender Andre Ooijer will return to PSV Eindhoven at the end of the season. (Daily Mirror)
Always like the idea of foreign players finishing their careers back home.
In an interview for the New Statesman, Sir Alex Ferguson has conceded that his biggest mistake as manager of Manchester United was allowing defender Jaap Stam to leave the club, while his biggest regret was not signing former England midfielder Paul Gascoigne. (The Times)
Somewhere Juan Sebastián Verón is thinking, “forget Jaap Stam what about me?”
Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo is set to be given a special training session with the man’s fastest man – Usain Bolt. Triple Olympic champion Bolt will be in Manchester to run in a one-off 150m street race in May.
I’d pay to see this race. Hopefully it wouldn’t be like the Michael Johnson-Donovan Bailey 150m race back in 1997 where Johnson pulled up lame once it became clear Bailey was going to smoke him.
