RAFA: I DON'T KNOW MY BUDGET

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez says he still does not know his budget for the January transfer window, despite having already held a meeting with the club's hierarchy.

The Spaniard held discussions with managing director Lee Charnley in December over potential targets, and said before Christmas he wanted his squad for the remainder of the season in place by January 20.

Newcastle board ...... couldn't organise a rip off at a Thai police road block :evil:

BARKLEY NEARS CHELSEA MOVE

Everton midfielder Ross Barkley underwent a medical at Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham on Thursday night and his move to the Premier League champions could be confirmed later today, SSN understands.

We understand the player and his representatives are at Stamford Bridge at present, finalising a deal.

Looks a snip at 15m with the current level of fees. Bit concerned that Chelski are looking for cheap options like Barkley & Big Andy C ...... does this mean the Abramarobles have run out ??
wasn,t he going last year for 35 mill? well done agent ross :D

MOURA TO UNITED?

PSG forward Lucas Moura would only consider a move away from the club this month to join Manchester United, reports Telefoot.

Moura has managed only 72 minutes of league action this term but still plans to stay at PSG until the end of the season.

LaLiga sides Real Betis and Malaga are both keen on recruiting him, but they are set for disappointment as Telefoot reports that Manchester United are the only club he would consider joining this month.

Makes sense really when you think about it :-k He may as well sit on the bench in Paris as anywhere else, and Man U have got such a sh*te forward line he'd probably be first choice there :oops:

"Manchester United are weighing up a £13m deal for PSG's Brazilian winger Lucas Moura, whose representatives are pushing to get him a move to a top-four Premier League club". (The Independent)

Rumours that Man Utd representatives are confident they can persuade him to go to Old Trafford instead of a "top four" club.

Everton currently negotiating the transfer of Theo Walcott from Arsenal......reaction from 747man later.

Another Arsenal player,Alexis Sanchez,expected to sign for Manchester City by the end of next week....a snip at 30m at todays prices.

ALLARDYCE: WE MUST TRIM SQUAD

Sounds like it could be a busy month at Everton. As well as Theo Walcott potentially arriving, Sam Allardyce has said: "It's essential we trim the squad if we're to bring more players in to adjust the balance of the squad and adjust the numbers.

"We'd be open to offers for a number of our players. We've had a number of enquiries but none of those enquiries have hit where our valuation might be."

And THAT explains why Everton have paid over the odds for so many players lately ......... their idea of what a player is worth doesn't match up with everyone elses idea (except PSG may be :roll: ) :lol:

Nice to see Mike Ashley has returned from his holiday ....... perhaps he could spend a minute or two of his precious spare time letting everyone including RAFA know what the f*** is happening ......... OR NOT which is more likely

I Do think he could be a DECENT Addition to the squad....IF he can " Stay Uninjured & Fit ".....But Find his predicted Wages a bit too high at 140k A Week..... :-k :-" :-#

Those sort of wages do seem a bit excessive with his goalscoring ratio of 0.27 goals per game (over 395 matches) meaning he is likely to score a whopping THREE goals between now and the end of the season =;

Oooh,I say.....I think he'd be an excellent signing for United as he can play either central striker or out wide.....two areas that United are lacking. :-k

Manchester City are prepared to walk away from a move to sign Alexis Sánchez after balking at the financial demands of the deal, even though that could pave the way for the Arsenal striker to join rivals Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho, the United manager, refused to rule out a move for Sánchez on Friday night, describing him as a “phenomenal” footballer and claiming it was difficult to turn down the chance to sign players of that calibre when they became available.
Arsène Wenger, the Arsenal manager, admitted for the first time on Friday that Sánchez would not extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season, and United have now emerged as a serious buyers for the player.


Heres a pic of Alexis with his girlfriend,Laia Grassi \:D/

Wakey wakey Alan ... he Walcot cant score when hes sat on the blooming subs bench or injured can he ??? exactly the reason he wants the move FIRST TEAM FOOTBALL every week all be at a smaller club will enhance his chances of goin to the the WC in Russia .. Theo was seen in Scunny last week ..apparently un related to footy just there for a break on the beach but this could be a scam and he may sign for the Iron instead of Emerton if his ambition level rises WATCH THIS SPACE !!

"We'd be open to offers for a number of our players. We've had a number of enquiries but none of those enquiries have hit where our valuation might be."
3 players Everton want rid of.....
1.Klassen who cost a reported 27.5m from Ajax in the summer.....he's hardly featured.I've never seen him play.They wont recoup much money for him unless he goes out on loan and does well.
2.Niasse who cost 13m a couple of years ago.....a hard working striker but his overall play is limited.That said,he's scored 6 goals for The Toffees this season.Could be prolific in the Championship and a good bet for bigger clubs like Leeds or Forest hoping to regain the Promised Land. ;)
3.Sandro a striker who only cost 5m from Malaga in the summer.If no-one is prepared to offer anything near that for him then he could end up at Cheltenham or Macclesfield ! :D
