#mufc still 'in contact' with two other players asides from Sneijder

Starsport: "Talks between United and Sneijder's representatives have taken place and Starsport understands the midfielder has agreed a deal around 190,000 a week at Old Trafford'

So David Ornstein from BBC is a Tottenham fan. What else do you expect? Confirmed from a Croatian journo the Modric deal is very much on.

How so? Man City should be giving that spot to a young prospect either from the academy or a "small fee" player like Hernandez. You dont need the experience in the team and if you think you can get Hargreaves to play at certain times like when Yaya isnt around then you're probably wrong. Rather take a gamble on a young player than an old player. When was the last time Hargreaves played a proper full match?

Harry is such a clown. Good that National team wont be having any transfer window.

How many CMs he wants. Modric, Huddlestone, Kranjcar, Sandro, Parker, Jenas, Livermore, Palacios and many random fucks.

Buy a quality striker ffs.

Come tomorrow, Modric and Palacios could be off that list

Btw, wasnt Livermore going to WHU on loan as part of the Parker deal?

I dont think they will sell Modric. Yeah Palacios will move to Stoke probably.

Saw some tweets saying Spurs rejected loan move for Livermore.

Still they have Wannabe Beckham rotting somewhere. Any news on him.? "Bentley".

Harry's love/obsession for Midfielders is beyond joke.

My tweets are saying that a deal for Modric is still on. Chelsea's Ron Gourlay and Dan Levy met up, reports of a cash + Benayoun bid was discussed. Talks have been going on since last night.

Livermore looks like a great prospect, yeah Palacios off to Stoke.

Not sure about Bentley, havent seen his name pop up.

Btw, Sunderland bid 10m for Crouch just a while back and QPR are also very much interested.

Also, Diarra is said to be in the final stages of negotiations with Spurs, deal could be completed tonight itself.

nasri supporting arsene-

Quote:
“Arsenal are a great club,” Nasri told France Football.

“But [after] building the Emirates Stadium its financing has changed quite a bit. It has changed the ambitions for the moment.

“But it is not Arsene Wenger. It is the policy of the club leaders. Arsenal no longer have the same resources.

“He cannot make the same moves as before the transfer market. Rather, he is obliged to sell its best players and bet on the young.”

This policy of buying young has brought about increasing criticism from Gunners fans as they become impatient over the club's lack of silverware.

“There are signals that do not lie,” Nasri added. “The departure of Fabregas to Barcelona is one.

“Our end to last season was another challenge. The defeat against Birmingham in the final of the League Cup was also very hard in the head.

“Coming to Manchester City, I chose a club in an upward spiral.

“I do not regret going through Arsenal. I learned a lot there, tasted the highest level, with a very high level of expectation.

“When I arrived, there was also a great competition and I managed to impose myself. It was a fantastic life experience. I learned about myself.

“I am more [of a] scorer than in the past. I progressed defensively. I owe a lot to Arsenal and especially Arsene Wenger. Both have given me recognition in England and a new exhibit at the international level.”

of course this doesn't excuse tactical stubbornness of Wenger. He has a lot of blame on his own shoulders, but the board deserves far more criticism than it receives IMO

Benayoun is close to joining Spurs and is flying back to London for a medical tonight according to the Israeli media #CU (via @ChelseaUnite)

Yossi Benayoun is close to joining Spurs.Flying back to London for a medical tonight according to the Israeli media. Part of Modric deal.

Sky confirms Chelsea's Yossi Benayoun is close to joining Tottenham

Slaven Bilic says Luka Modric could leave the Croatia camp on deadline day if a late deal is agreed.

Yossi Benayoun to Tottenham almost done: medical tonight. So the cash+benayoun news for Luka Modric was correct. Always said the deal was never dead.

Maybe, maybe not. Chelsea have been looking to get rid of Benayoun either way.

They have Sandro too.

Talk of a Yossi Benayoun medical at Spurs seems wide of the mark at this stage. No suggestion of firm interest. #fb

Arsenal will make 1 final offer (take it or leave it) for Gary Cahill tonight #Arsenal

Skysports.com understands Bolton and Tottenham are locked in talks regarding a deal for Gary Cahill. Bassong unlikely to be involved.

Get the feeling this is paper talk. I think Fergie's seen enough of his squad to think Sneijder's not worth it.

English Premier League: Two Weeks In – What Have We Learned So Far? (part 2)

Manchester United – Anderson becomes key, whilst wingers have two different roles

A lot was made of Paul Scholes’ retirement, and the search for a replacement, but two young players have stepped up to form a new central pairing, with Anderson the most impressive, undertaking everything you would require of a ‘complete’ midfielder:




Against West Brom: 2nd highest passer, most take ons, 2nd top tackler, 96% pass completion, 54% of passes played forward with 93% completion (sideways and backwards passes 100% completion)

Against Tottenham: top passer, top tackler, most interceptions, 88% pass completion, 73% passes forward with 86% completion (sideways and backwards passes 92% completion)
