Wayne Rooney Transfer News: Have Arsenal Really Bid £20m?

on June 30 2013 2:19 PM

As we approach the opening of the official transfer window, hopefully we can see the end of the phoney transfer war! It seems to be a competition between our anachronistic press hacks to concoct the most outrageous stories to make headlines, thereby selling newspapers. However, whilst this does happen to an extent in other countries, nobody, it seems is as good as telling outright lies as our press.

The latest hot off the press is the story by the Daily Mirror today that Arsene Wenger has made a £20m bid for Wayne Rooney. Any true Arsenal fan will know straightaway that Wenger never makes public, his transfer dealings; he even stated this recently in a press conference with the UK media.

I am fortunate that I have a good source from within United ; my friend`s son plays in the youth team. As far as I am aware, Wayne Rooney does not want to leave Old Trafford at all; he wants a new deal to see his career out at Manchester United. He is already a top earner and will probably get a new deal with some add-ons; after all, this will be his last contract.

Manchester United Transfer News: United Make Last Minute Bid For Cavani To Derail Chelsea!

on June 30 2013 7:17 AM

The transfer saga of summer 2013 looks like it will rumble on and on, as we read claim and counter claim in the pursuit of Edison Cavan, the Napoli striker. This week, the media in the UK claimed that a deal had been done for the striker between Napoli and Chelsea, only for that claim to be rubbished by a different newspaper quoting the Napoli president, De Laurentiis as saying that no deal has been reached because the buyout clause has not been met.

Of course, no transfer saga would be complete if Manchester United were not involved, so sure enough, in the last 24 hours, it seems that they have made a last minute entrance into the fray. There is no mention of what they have bid, or even a shred of supporting evidence or even a quote from anybody concerned, but hey, there you go.

Manchester United Transfer News: Rooney, Vidic, Leighton Baines, Marouane Fellaini In The News Today

on June 29 2013 2:01 PM

In the last few hours before the real transfer window begins, we will have to endure the phoney transfer rumours which are perpetrated by lazy journalists, especially in the UK, where they have a propensity to make up stories out of nothing.

First up is the old chestnut and hacks standby story, Wayne Rooney. Despite that fact that my Old Trafford sources have assured me that there is no possible chance of Rooney leaving United this season, the media will have their moment of fantasy. It is annoying for fans around the world who do not have my contacts, and thereby, my inside knowledge that these rumours of Rooney leaving are utter fiction. Talk of clubs preparing bids for the player is even more far-fetched. It is simply not worth discussing any further, so I will move onto the next piece of joke journalism.

Arsenal Transfer Rumors: Gunners Could Sign Julio Cesar For Only £1.5 Million

Arsenal could seal a bargain transfer deal for Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar. According to The Daily Telegraph's Jeremy Wilson, the Gunners will bid £1.5 million for Cesar after the Confederations Cup.

The 33-year-old will lead Brazil out in the final of that tournament against Spain. Arsenal are expected to confirm his switch to North London after that, at the start of next week.

This is not the first time Cesar has been linked with Arsenal. At the end of May, Italian website TuttoMercatoWeb, claimed a contract had already been agreed.

Bookies Sky Bet even suspended betting on the transfer at the start of June. Since then rumors of Arsenal's interest in Cesar have cooled.
