With the January transfer window for the UEFA Champions League open, here are some transfer rumors to stay away from.
Lionel Messi to Man City: The most bizarre link being speculated right now is the link for Manchester City to bring in Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. Man City probably has the money to buy him, but it would cost them a ton of money. If Bale was sold for 85 million pounds, Messi would have to be worth close to double that(250 million pounds). He is the best player in the world, so why would Barcelona give him away. Messi recently said he wants to end his career with Barcelona. Expect this to happen.
Pedro To Liverpool: There have been links of Barcelona’s Pedro going to other clubs such as Liverpool this January. Obviously, a player of Pedro’s quality wants regular playing time at Barcelona, and there have been links that he may want a loan, but he is world class and would not want to leave one of this best clubs in the world. I reckon he will stay put at Barcelona this January.
Daniel Agger To Napoli: There have been links about Daniel Agger going to Napoli on loan for the rest of the season. This is just speculation. Liverpool would never give away Agger on loan because he is quality and a crucial part of Liverpool’s squad. Even if he’s not getting regular playing time at the moment Rodgers would never let him go out on loan. Also, his most recent injury will not attract as many suitors for him. Stranger things have happened, but expect Agger to be in a Reds shirt for the rest of the season.
Diego Costa To Arsenal: It was rumored in the summer that Liverpool had launched a bid for Diego Costa and triggered his release clause. Costa opted to stay with Atletico Madrid because he was happy at the club. Costa is in great form this campaign with Atletico and is a major reason to why Atletico are doing so well. Arsenal happens to be rumored with the striker this January. Being serious title contenders, Costa would never want to leave Atletico Madrid nor would they sell him. Expect Costa to stay put at Atletico Madrid for a while.
