Filthy stinking rich and proud of it, Paris St Germain are now loaded enough to bid for any player on the planet, courtesy of the Qatar Investment Authority. And, according to new boss Carlo Ancelotti, the agents of some of the Premier League’s most high-profile strikers have been beating down his door, looking to secure their clients a lucrative contract in the French capital.

Former Chelsea manager Ancelotti  told La Gazzetta dello Sport:

“I have received hundreds of phone calls from agents offering me players ever since I signed with PSG. They have offered me some incredible names. Players who have just signed spectacular contracts elsewhere.”

“They all want to come here. There’s the city of Paris, there’s money and there’s a coach with a good reputation, ” he continued.

“Do you want the names? Okay, now I tell you the players the agents are offering on the market, officially or not: [Carlos] Tevez, [Fernando] Torres, [Dimitar] Berbatov, [Roman] Pavlyuchenko, [Edison] Cavani, [Fernando] Llorente.”

However, would the Blues be doing the right thing to offload Torres now, just as seems to be starting to rediscover his form? Also, surely Dimitar Berbatov is still a very valuable player at Old Trafford? Pavlyuchenko’s departure, however, wouldn’t upset too many Spurs fans, would it?

    If their smart they’ll go for Cavani and Llorente. The rest are all past it. But Cavani and Llorente are the way forward.

    @peter agreed and i may be in a minority but i rate pav above defoe, i have never seen defoe finesse (god i play too much fifa) a shot in his life, he always just hits and hopes

  3. HJLS says:

    In Defoes defence (and I’m far from a Spurs fan) alot of the great strikers from times gone by have always confessed to not bothering about picking their spot. The philosophy is get your head over the ball and hit the b*stard at goal as hard as you can. Not everyone is Cristiano Ronaldo.

    id love to see pavlyuchenko gone

  5. Jonkops says:

    @Archbishop Betty: I bought him on FIFA haha and he was a flop!!

  6. Andy Carroll's Ponytail says:

    It’s really sad cos I think Pav’s done the business everytime he’s got the chance. Which isn’t often. But when he has been called upon he has almost always done well. That tells u loads about his abilities and mentality. Saaayy..don’t Liverpool need a striker?
