Friday's Transfer Gossip

Not everything in the paper can be believed,right? So why not try to distinguish the "Oh yeah that might be true!" from "What crap!".

Manchester United,Chelsea,Real Madrid,Inter Milan make bids for Lyon's striker - Karim Benzema [The Independent]

What we think? : It would be very hard for Lyon to deny a 40million euro bid for the striker. It always happens with the smaller leagues who develop a player at a young age and the bigger fishes in the sea swoop in with their money might. Manchester United have been long admirers of him over the years but haven't made any offers but all this could change with Ronaldo going to Madrid and Sir Alex could use that money.Manchester United seem the front runners for me.

Chelsea pip Liverpool for Portsmouth's Johnson [The Sun]

What we think? : Liverpool bid £17million. Chelsea bid £17.5million.Its not a matter of big money between the two clubs.Glen Johnson had a bad time with Chelsea at London and that could be the big difference between his preference in the two clubs despite Chelsea's lucrative offer and bigger pay packet.

United agree on Tevez's permanent price,fail to agree on personal terms [The Sun]

What we think? : With the response Tevez received at the end of the season and his reaction when substituted at Old Trafford shows he most definitely wouldn't stay. Manchester City seem the way to go for the Argentine.

Manchester City have agreed an £18m deal to sign Blackburn forward Roque Santa Cruz. [Daily Mail]

What we think? : Mark Hughes would be elated to reunite with his goal scoring machine who he brings in from Rovers to Eastlands after an injury spell for the Paraguayan. He would definitely give prospective City signings Eto'o and Tevez a run for their money.

Bayern closing in on Chelsea's Boswinga [The Times]

What we think? : Chelsea might see Carvalho leave for Inter Milan and neither Paulo Ferreira or Beletti have been impressive under Hiddink at least.Things might change with Ancelotti at the helm now but Chelsea would look for a replacement for the former Porto man before they would allow him to leave to Germany.

Scharner set for a move to Fulham from Wigan [Daily Mail]

What we think? : Scharner would be better off in moving to a side who would be playing Europa League next season.While new Wigan boss Roberto Martinez wants to sign Jordi Gomez,who he managed at Swansea earlier. The Austrian has quality to play for a team who would play in Europe and Fulham will give him that opportunity.
