Arsenal To Nab Inter’s Mario Balotelli, Man Utd Target ‘The Norwegian Vidic’

Rumours are a smoke made with the fume of sighs. Here’s the round up…


I think you’ve missed a bit Mario

Rumour No. 1: Arsenal are preparing a €25 million summer swoop for unsettled Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli. The 19 year old forward is said to be seeking an exit from the San Siro after finding his match day temperament called into question one-too-many times by Inter coach Jose Mourinho.


I know it’s seamless, but this is actually a mock-up

Rumour No. 2: Manchester United are lining up a bid for Sogndal centre back Even Hovland. The 20 year old defender has been dubbed ‘The Norwegian Vidic’ due to his strength and commitment, and is said to have ‘hugely impressed’ Sir Alex Ferguson during a two week trial at United.

Hovland even completed a medical at Carrington during the second stage of his trial period, so the way is seemingly paved for a summer move to Old Trafford – but will ‘The Serbian Vidic’ still be there when he arrives?

The Best of the Rest: Racing Santander starlet Sergio Canales is on the verge of agreeing a deal that would see the Spanish prodigy join Real Madrid in the close season.

Just when it seemed certain that Franck Ribery would be a Real Madrid player next season, it appears that the Bayern Munich star is still considering offers from Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.

Cesc Fabregas loves London and Barcelona. Make of that what you will.

Wigan Athletic defender Erik Edman is in talks with Helsingborg over a return to Sweden.

Aston Villa midfielder Isaiah Osbourne (who has just returned to Villa from a loan spell at Middlesbrough) will join QPR when the loan window opens.

    If i was Belotelli, i would have already left Italy for Spain or England and have given my fellow italians the middle finger by applying for a new passport in a country that can handle an african immigrant.

  2. The Truth says:

    Ha!! Yeah because Engerland is such a welcoming place for african immigrants!! You Clod!

  4. Mario Balotelli Barwuah says:

    (Heffer:) You are right imagine getting racist abuse from your own fans as well as the other team you play against its crazy.In this modern world and the italians do nothing they should be banned from all competions, world cup,euro championships,ucl and europa like england was for ten years. This is modern day hooligaism. I feel sorry for any black players in italian football. As we can see racism will never stop but you cant stop talent only slow it down. (The truth:) He is not a immigrant he was born in italy unfortunately even though they didnt want him to have a passport till he was 18 you clod whatever that means…Barwuah his real name play for Ghana and be a legend
