Gossip: Rodgers, Jese, Calhanoglu…
RODGERS NOT Interested in VILLA JOB
Nicely this comes as little surprise. Last week the papers have been filled with speak that Aston Villa have been lining up Brendan Rodgers to replace Tim Sherwood as manager ought to they lose patience in ‘Arry-lite. Now comes the news that Rodgers doesn’t fancy the gig.
This can be the man who thinks he is a greater manager than when he almost won the Premier League title. Was he really about to take a job using a relegation candidate 3 weeks down the line? No, surely not.
Reports on Saturday suggest that Rodgers will do some Television work (BeIn Sports were previously described) and assess his possibilities in England and abroad prior to creating a decision. He is apparently satisfied to wait till the summer season just before taking a new job. A ￡7m pay-off will do that.
CHELSEA WANT JESE RODRIGUEZ
Step forward for some Grade A bulls**t now, courtesy of our old pals (something smells) fichajes.net. They say that Chelsea will rival Arsenal for the signing of Jese Rodriguez from Real Madrid.
As ever, we are able to only bring you the rumour by means of the glorious medium of Google translate, which tends to make it sound quite mysterious.
Headline: ‘The Premier League also called on its doorstep’. Excellent.
Standfirst: ‘Several English clubs are following the footsteps with the Canary end’. Sensational.
Facts: ‘Jese Rodriguez could have two solutions to exit from Genuine Madrid inside the subsequent winter market place because the Arsenal and Chelsea could try to gain the solutions of canary end. The two options really like the white attacker and would welcome his departure for London, but decided to finish wants assurances that any of those teams appreciate the minutes that doesn’t merengue.’
We’re officially satisfied to believe something they say now.
ARSENAL RIVAL UNITED FOR CALHANOGLU
To TalkSPORT now, who claim that Arsenal will challenge Manchester United for the signing of Hakan Calhanoglu from Bayer Leverkusen. They’re assuming that United are essentially interested.
Reports recommend that Milan and Barcelona are each serious about Calhanoglu, who is anything from the free-kick king.
The information around the 21-year-old is short, but we’re basically told that Arsenal have created him a January target although United are preparing a bid. Hmmm.
