THE BIG STORY
David Trezeguet is on the brink of leaving Juventus as the Turin giants are willing to listen to offers. According to Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, Trezegol may be sold-if the price is right. But off course, Gigli did not specify the price.
Not specifying the price means that Manchester City might make a bid tripple Trezeguet's real value. Lucky Juventus.
Some transfer rumors like to bring about a smirk on the faces of people. One story that subconsciously put a smirk on R-R's face was that Bayern are after Trezeguet.
Bayern already have brilliant strikers with Miroslav Klose, Lukas Podolski, Luca Toni and new arrivals Mario Gomez and Ivica Olic at their disposal.
According to several fabricated news on bad football websites with plenty of viruses covered up with strange-looking ads, Aston Villa have enquired about David Bentley.
It might be true since Bentley's career at Tottenham has been put on rocks ever since he moved to White Hart Lane.
So Bentley is a has-been who can be chewed up, molded and re-shaped into a good player. Meanwhile, Martin O'neil like to chew up, mold and re-shape. So it's a match made in heaven.
In another rumor, Arsenal are said to be interested in Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh. The Gunners are also thought to be interested in Fulham's Brede Hangeland.
Meanwhile Juninho Pernambucano is sure to move after scoring his 100th goal with Olympique Lyon. Juninho's likely destinations include Al-Shabab of UAE or moving back to his homeland with Brazilian outfit Sao Paulo.
It's been said that Italians like washed-up 30-plus year-olds. One man who has objected is Jose Mourinho.
That's why Mourinho is edging closer, according to transfer news, to signing Chelsea's 31 year-old Deco and Genoa's 30 year-old Diego Milito and 27 year-old Thiago Motta. 27? Oh.
Milan's talented French attacking midfielder Yohann Gourcuff moves to Bordeaux after a year on loan at the French club from the Italian giants.
It's a huge loss if you ask R-R. Gourcuff is a player, similar in his characteristics, to Milan's Brazilian sensation Kaka.
Maybe Real Madrid should have jumped at the chance to get Gourcuff. If only Real cared less about selling shirts and more about making results.
But that's Madrid. And with Perez at the helm of the board as president, it shall surely be a thrilling transfer season with many Cristiano Ronaldo-like transfer sagas boring the hell out of all of us.
