Rumors & Realities: Robbie Keane Moves to Liverpool, Samuel Eto'o to Stay

R-R presents to you the latest rumors and realities of football news.

Samuel Eto'o is rewarded for his good attitude and should stay at Nou Camp according to Barcelona president Joan Laporta, while Robbie Keane is rewarded for his good form by moving away from underachieving Spurs and heads to Liverpool.

 

Rumors

Sulley Muntari's switch to Inter Milan might mean that Jose Mourinho will end his hunt for Frank Lampard according to reports. Chelsea will not sell Lamps as they seem to have every good center midfielder in football. Chelsea are even linked with Kaka, and it will be interesting to see how Luiz Felipe Scolari will fit them all in his system.

Newcastle have finally realized that the reason they have been conceding a lot of goals is their awful defense, and are reportedly trying to bring in ex-Liverpool left-back Stephen Warnock.

Newcastle had two bids rejected earlier in the summer, and might include Damien Duff in a deal to bring in Warnock. Damien Duff was instrumental in Chelsea's back-to-back titles, and yet he was sold for only £5m to Newcastle, and now the Irish winger might be swapped for Warnock which makes me ask, "how good is Warnock?"

Moving to the capital of Italy, Roma are in the hunt for a winger, as manager Luciano Spalletti confirmed his interest in signing Florent Malouda or Euro winner David Silva.  Roma have already completed the signing of John Arne Riise and are also linked with Julio Baptista and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Last and probably least interesting by now, injured Cristiano Ronaldo is hopping around from one party to another, enjoying the spotlight while Sir Alex Ferguson is certainly hoping that after the parties are over, Ronaldo will fly back to Manchester and not head to Madrid.

 

Realities

Robbie Keane moves to Liverpool from Tottenham for a transfer fee of £19 million. While Sunderland's Roy Keane has brought in El-Hadji Diouf from Bolton Wanderers in an attempt to help the Cats be a little bit more frightening for their opponents.

Andy Johnson has moved to Fulham after failing to live up to his potential at Everton. Now Everton will now try to sign Sporting Lisbon's creative midfielder Jao Moutinho.

Newcastle had a bid rejected in their attempt to sign Deportivo La Corona's Fabricio Coloccini. Genoa lead the chase to sign a player who played for the club earlier in his career; Diego Milito might move to Genoa, a club that he would love to play for again.

Other Genoa news, Sokratis Papastathopoulos moves from AEK Athens to Genoa. While other transfer news include: Marcinho moves from Santos to Murcia for a free transfer, while Alvaro Anton from Valladolid to Real Murcia. In other words, nothing important happened today, just unknown players moving to low-profile clubs.
