Which shock late transfers would you like to see?

January 30, 2009

The end of the transfer window is fast approaching and so far it has been fairly quiet (if we exclude the Manchester City-Kaka saga as it didn’t go through).

The deadline this year is February 2 given January finishes on a weekend so there is a little extra time for some late deals.

What transfers do you expect to see and which wacky moves would amuse you in an ideal world?

After Jermain Defoe and Pascal Chimbonda came back, will Tottenham Hotspur continue buying up their old players and target Liverpool’s hit-and-miss forward Robbie Keane? If they really want to roll back the clock, what about Sergei Rebrov? ;)

Real Madrid made two hasty signings in Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Lassana Diarra, but could they pull a rabbit out of the hat late on. Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo have committed themselves to Milan and United, haven’t they?

Didier Drogba to Inter Milan is a favourite for the tabloids while where will Andrei Arshavin end up? Arsenal, Hoffenheim, Zenit?

Barcelona probably don’t need reinforcements but I’ve felt for years they needed a really top class goalkeeper, with the greatest respect to Victor Valdes. Juve’s Gianluigi Buffon has said he would leave if a fantasy football bid was made.

Have some fun and tell us your top transfer picks.

Would love to see some shock transfers to the lower clubs.

David Beckham to Arsenal i think, he might just be the experienced holding midfielder we need.

I would really like to see Arshavin join the Arsenal-squad. We really need something more when so many important players are injured.

I know what I did’t want to see, and that’s one of the Premier League’s most loyal servants (Shay Given) being bought by the increasinly parasitic Manchester City. As a Newcastle fan I’m not angry at Given, just sad that he’s opted to go to that dump. He deserves better. City deserve to fold overnight, with Bellamy in the middle.

Would love to see Cristiano Ronaldo go to QPR and then left to rot in the reserves!

 

Villa to Man City. Veloso to Bolton. Arshavin to Spurs. Wenger to France.
