23/05/18 Another day another rumour mill selection, With Arsenal confirming former PSG boss Unai Emery as successor to Arsene Wenger, expect to see North London’s biggest club linked to everyone now, but they will need to work hard to keep a hold of Harry Kane. Anyway check out the latest transfer rumours below and what are the chances of them actually taking place, Agent Taggar is on the case:
Danny Welbeck – Besiktas
Arsenal and England striker Danny Welbeck, 27, is being tracked by Turkish side Besiktas. (Fotospor via TalkSport)
Bullshit Factor – 90%
Probability – Rumours in Manchester prior to Welbeck going to Arsenal was that he loved the odd Kebab or two, sometimes even with salad. This rumour seems to have originated from North London’s branch of the Kebab King.
Agent Taggar: With 12 months left on his contract and his time at Arsenal been plagued by injuries it may be time for Welbz to move on. Welbz maybe on the move but whether he trips over his own legs and lands in Turkey seems a bit of a longshot even for him! Chances of it happening 10%
Griezmann – Barca
Barcelona remain confident that Atletico Madrid’s France forward Antoine Griezmann 27, will sign for them in the summer having given his word. (Mundo Deportivo – in Spanish)
Bullshit Factor – 25%
Probability – Barcelona piss so many fans off in the transfer market, they love to unsettle players, and this seems to be the case again, the transfer will most likely happen, Barcelona not being classy again!
Agent Taggar: Could be the major signing of the summer in La Liga however he was close to ‘moving’ to Man Utd last summer only to sign an improved contract. Is this another ploy by Griezmann’s agent if it isn’t he will be joining Messi and Suarez at Camp Nou. Is there a better attacking three in world football??? Chances of this happening 75%
Morata – Milan
AC Milan are interested in signing Chelsea’s Spain striker Alvaro Morata, 25. (Sky Italia – in Italian)
Bullshit Factor – 80%
Probability – Morata, he settled about as well in England as that guy in New York that Sting sang about, Morata is off, and we disagree with Agent Taggar here, as we think he will go anywhere in Italy as it is out of the Premier League.
Agent Taggar: Morata will be on the move soon enough. In Serie A he had his best spell playing week in and out. If he becomes available I think his former team Juventus will come calling if so he will move back to the Old Lady! Chances of this happening 20%
Fred – Man Utd
Fred is Keen on a move away and Jose has been an admirer (Various)
Bullshit Factor – 30%
Probability – Have you seen the cost of Freddo’s, I remember when they were 10p, I also remember my last Brazilian, that was not cheap, neither will this one be, if Utd can pull it off.
Agent Taggar: This rumour has not gone away! Man Utd need reinforcements in midfield and he is definitely an option! We will all know more about this soon enough as Brazil will be playing at Anfield against Croatia in a warm up match for the World Cup conveniently Man Utd’s training centre Carrington is 29 miles away! Chances of It Happening 70%
Matthis De Legit – Spurs
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is considering a move for 18-year-old Ajax and Netherlands defender Matthijs de Ligt. (Guardian)
Bullshit Factor – 40%
Probability – Let see how “Lejit” Levy is, or will he “Leg-it” when the price rises! Man is tighter than Agent Taggar when his round is due!
Agent Taggar: One of the most sought after defenders in Europe Spurs seem to have their eye on De Ligt to replace the outgoing Alderweirald. Only issue here is Man City and Barcelona are also interested. This is Daniel Levy’s time to prove to Pochettino that Spurs are serious about moving forward and to get the defender at all costs. 60%
