R-R presents to you the latest rumors and realities of football news
With pretty much nothing happening in Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Real Madrid, R-R is out of material for the Ronaldo-Madrid saga.
Paris Saint-German are interested in signing Milan's Alessandro Nesta, says PSG's new chairman Charles Villeneuve. Should the crazy move that will never happen occur, Nesta should fit in well with the rest of the PSG lads, for there is a similar thirty-plus environment in Paris as in Milan.
Milan might be set to sign a defender after the Italian giant were rocked with Nesta's injury. Milan are said to be interested in Sao Paulo's Alex Silva who is likely to be cheaper than Fluminense's Thiago Silva.
Moving away from Milan to Liverpool, the transfer saga of Gareth Barry is turning into a Cristiano Ronaldo-Real Madrid like soap opera. In the latest "Who will Wenger's last signing be?" Newspaper tabloids have guessed that Arsene Wenger will try to secure Gareth Barry as he tries to close the gaps after Alexander Hleb and Matthieu Flamini left Wenger with a couple of teenagers that happen to enjoy playing in the middle of the football pitch.
As Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid's public affair fades in the tabloids, another soap opera begins with Chelsea looking to offer a massive bid to secure the services of Robinho. Luiz Felipe Scolari seems to want only Portuguese-speaking players, with Portugal duo Deco and Jose Bosingwa having made the move to London earlier in the summer signalling the beginning of Scolari's "revolution."
Speaking of revolutions, Tottenham's revolutionary manager Juande Ramos is apparently on the way to change every squad player from last season. Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane seem set to join Manchester United and Liverpool respectively, while Ramos is said to be ready to move for Euro hero Andrei Arshavin.
Man Utd will sign Carlos Tevez to keep the Argentinian permanently; the deal will be worth 63 million Dollars for the overrated man who ironically was once tagged "the new Maradona."
Roma seem closer than ever in their chase to sign Real Madrid's back-up utility man Julio Baptista. Baptista plays as a striker, attacking midfielder and center midfielder, and once even played on the left flank during Luxemburgo's short reign as Real manager. Roma's Spalletti is likely to use him as a striker though, with Roma's squad still short of strikers.
Meanwhile, Arsenal striker Emmanuele Adebayor's soap opera has ended with the Togo international set to remain in London. Barcelona and Milan have both given up in their pursuit for the overvalued striker.
In other news, Paul Robinson moves to Blackburn Rovers, while Brad Friedel leaves Blackburn for Aston Villa. Seyi Olofinjana moves to Stoke from Wolves while Pascal Chimbonda finally makes his move to Roy Keane's Sunderland.
Kevin Keegan says he will welcome back Joey Barton when the English midfielder is released from prison, while Didier Drogba will soon make his final decision on whether he is staying at Stamford Bridge or moving on.
