    Transfer Talk Thread

    A new place where we can talk about all future transfer(apart from Mikk who will just mention the Sunderland one's)

    Looks like Barca could have their next superstar

    Barcelona have already made a €14m (£11.6m) downpayment to Brazilian club Santos for Neymar according to Spain’s biggest radio station, Cadena Ser.

    Chelsea and Real Madrid both enquired about the attacker last season but Cadena Ser reported last night that Barcelona president Sandro Rosell closed the deal at the Copa America last July, agreeing a fee of €58m.

    Santos and Barcelona are still negotiating when the player will arrive with Barça wanting him at the end of next season and Santos preferring 2014.

    I always imagined Neymar going to Madrid, but whatever, it's about time that kid left Santos and showed Europe what he can do.

    Re: Transfer Talk Thread

    For a second there I thought the bid was 14m Euro's . Was about to say no way it could be that. £35-40m sounds around right though considering how hyped he's been. Even Pele's been treating the kid like a Messiah and Neymar loves Barca's to bits.

    Neymar/Messi/Sanchez?

    Jesus. Three of the fastest, best dribblers in world in one team.

    Man United to sign Benfica's Nicolas Gaitan for £20m plus Fabio and Macheda

    The details of the deal are likely to see Fabio going only on a season’s long loan while Macheda’s transfer could be a permanent one, with Manchester United then reducing some of the costs of acquiring the highly-rated Gaitán.

    Although the figures involved are unlikely to be disclosed, and the deal will not be announced until the season is over, it appears United are valuing Gaitán at more than £20 million plus the players.

    While it will be interesting to see where he fits into Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans United have been tracking the Argentina international for some time and are now understood to have made their move for a summer transfer. Gaitan, who can play as an attacking midfielder or left-sided winger, caught the eye in Benfica’s Champions League campaign this season when they faced both United and Chelsea.

    The 24 year-old has a £38 million release clause in his contract and it had been thought that Benfica were attempting to hold out for the full amount to be paid. However, that was always going to be an unrealistic valuation for Gaitán, despite his undoubted talent which has also attracted the likes of Inter Milan and Paris St-Germain, and United have been in talks for several months to try to structure a deal.

    Macheda, the 20-year-old Italian striker, is on loan to Queens Park Rangers but has failed to make an impression after a handful of appearances and has returned to United after suffering an ankle injury. It would now appear his days at Old Trafford are numbered with Macheda a makeweight in the deal while, more interestingly, Fabio also appears set to be included.

    The inclusion of players would be an attraction for Benfica who have to pay Gaitan’s former club, Boca Juniors, 20 per cent of any transfer fee. United had hoped to agree a deal in January but will now conclude the transfer in June.

    It had been thought that United might try to include Bebe as well as Macheda but the choice of Fabio has helped persuade Benfica to conclude negotiations. Gaitan is understood to be represented by the Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes who has close links with United having taken the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani to the club.

    Ferguson has already said that Fabio will go out on loan next season. Although the Brazilian featured in United Champions League final defeat to Barcelona last season, he has failed to progress as expected.

    A succession of niggling injuries have not helped and Fabio had made just 15 appearances in all competitions this season, with the right-back starting just two league matches.

    Ferguson told United Review: “Fabio will go on loan next season to give him concentrated first-team experience. We have already talked to him and he understands the value of playing regularly at a higher level than we can give him at the moment.”
    Doesn't seem to have been confirmed elsewhere yet.

    And he scores goals...!

    Re: Transfer Talk Thread

    Good deal For United that.

    Get a good player for a reasonable fee in todays market and 2 squad players who barely play but would be starters for most team.

    Newcastle Transfer Predictions:

    OUT:
    Tiote to Chelsea/Liverpool - £20million
    Ba to Wherever (probably Liverpool) - £7million
    Wouldn't be shocked to see Krul or Ben Arfa go elsewhere as well.

    IN:
    (Mostly replacements for the above, but if they don't go):
    Hopefully some Centreback cover. Roger Johnson would be nice.

    Another Striker, maybe Doyle?

    Overall, this is gunna be a summer of warding the evil clubs off our players

    Just an idea. Him, Colo, Stevie T and Williamson is not bad for 4 CBs in the Premier League. We need to buy some English players at some point or we could fall foul of the 25 man rule

    I guess that means David Villa will be off. Chelsea maybe?

    We've already got enough English players with the Taylors, Williamson, the Ameobis, Ferguson, Gosling, Perch, Harper and Simpson. If we're going to get some good English players, we might as well make them good: Johnson isn't even better than Williamson, and I'm not a huge Williamson fan.

    I'm hoping we go for Hoilett Free transfer, I believe.

    I would imagine someone will come in for Hoilett who will blow your wages out of the water. Liverpool or maybe even Bayern Munich as he is pretty sought after in Germany.

    He'd be available for around 3 million though. Which is what we need. Cheap players.

    Apparently this Amalfitano guy from Stade de Reim is all but signed for us. Supposed to be a great player too. Creative mdifielder on a free. Savvy.

    This comes down to opinion, but I actually like Roger Johnson, he's just had a bad season

    You are obviously not familiar with the ludicrous wages that Newcastle offer players!

    Do they still do that? Haha. I thought all that stopped after the old Bowyer, Parker, Kluivert etc. team was a resounding success

    What happened to that Xisco guy that played for you? Heard he was on a fortune there.

    Also, Arsenal to sign Yann M'Vila, Jan Vertonghen and Lucas Podolski in the summer. But most importantly, RVP will re-sign.

    We don't really give high wages to players anymore. At least, not to the ridiculous degrees we used to. Our highest paid player is Colocinni.
