    I'm reading outlandish rumors that LFC is in a serious bid for Higuain and to a lesser extent Gomes. Cray.

    Higuain is an overpriced wasteful striker.

    I pity which ever team spends massive amount of $$ on him.

    Yup, Kun was def 2x more effective than Higuain, he had his time with Real and early on with Napoli

    The interview was from May 22nd and part of a commercial clip, it isn't really worth jack.

    Don't know why media are reporting it now.

    Giroud isn't even on the radar of Arsenal problems.
    If they replace or supplement their striking corps to go along with Giroud, they can be a lot better also.


    Yep, I bet the discussions over that one were intense. No way Mou would want to help Wenger get stronger.

    LOL wut. Must've been a slow day in the office or something. Thanks for the heads up!

    Nice job of Bayern to sign Douglas Costa!

    Think the material was just released this week, today's journalists are too lazy to research and didn't bother to check the background or actual date. Bunch of guys copying from one lazy source and then get paid for doing "journalism".

    Gündogan extended his contract for one more year lulz, that's some loyalty. Dortmund should've left this moron on the stands for his antics.

    Wonder how much he was demanding to have put off so many clubs? Even United, who is trigger happy with the wages, supposedly had backed out on this.

    Holding out for Ramos to wear the Red of Manchester next season. Hope he isn't this year's version of Vidal/Sneijder/Ozil.

    Between the transfer window and the NBA free agency, my head is about to explode reading all these gossip. :rolleyes:

    Many sources said around 12mil/year, which would be insane and make him one of the best paid in the world (12mil is what Ribery, a superstar, earns). Gündogan has done nothing, came off a serious injury and played like crap this season, he should've been happy that the top teams still tried to sign him in the beginning.

    Gündogan and his moronic father&uncle apparently think he's a star and gambled in terrible fashion, thinking clubs would want to sign him at all costs.

    Clyne to Pool official.

    also Inter selling Shaqiri is crazy, I would be shocked if Stoke was able to pull that off.

    The funny thing is the construction of the original deal with Bayern. Inter didnt have enough money and therefore loaned him for the season, but have to buy him this summer. Which means they pay Bayern around this week and immediately want to sell him again.

    This should tell you how bad Shaqiri is, the only clubs that want him are the ones that never had him and think he'll blossom under the system or coach. He'll never be a decent player, one of the lowest ball-iqs I've ever seen in professional football, seems to always make the wrong choice. He is good at dribbling and that's it, was lucky he began in the terrible Swiss league and played vs bad opponents, otherwise he'd have never played in a good league.

    Turan to Barca for 35mil, interesting.
    Only makes sense if they sell Pedro or Rafinha.

    Pep just said Lahm will have to play as right back this season, niiice. He was so horrible vs good opponents when playing in the midfield, good to see Pep not being completely stubborn.

    Really, he said that? Awesome!

    Edit: I can't find the statement anywhere? It would seriously surprise me...if so, I will start to like Pep a tiny bit more again. He should also have David play on the left. The axes Alaba-Ribery and Lahm-Robben were totally our strength, and he messed that up.
