The summertime transfer window is poised to bring big changes and an overwhelming amount of speculation just like it does every year. Below may be the fourth installment of some articles that examines the speculation and the fantasy relevance of each possible move.
David Villa – Valencia : Villa is one of many top targets this off season because it appears he is destined to leave Valencia at the conclusion of the year. Valencia’s finances have led many to think that they can sell off most of their quality players to be able to cut payroll and Villa likely will fetch them the most money in return. Villa is really a quality finisher, and paired alongside Fernando Torres, he helped lead Spain to the EURO 2008 title. Villa has caught the eyes of the largest and most wealthy clubs, and it will be a struggle between them to determine where David Villa will end up.
Where He Will End Up: The list has narrowed considerably but still has 3 or 4 worthy contenders. Manchester City is involved as they try and buy any superstar they can using their newly attained limit-less budget. Chelsea has additionally shown a pastime yet they seem to be keen to discover a forward just like the one they’re likely replacing (Drogba) and that role would probably be fitted more for identify window parts Zlatan than Villa. The two biggest teams in Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona, are both in contention as well. Valencia has got the mindset that if they sell him, they don’t want to handle him, which would make more sense to send him to England. However, it’s yet to unfold what will happen but my money is on that Villa will finish up somewhere in Spain, his home country.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Inter Milan: Zlatan has been as dominant a striker as may be in Series A in Italy, and has accumulated an array of goals for Inter Milan. However, the rumors have swirled he is seeking to play somewhere else in the ’09/’10 season and isn’t content to remain at Inter. This case is one of many hardest to decipher for there is not an excessive amount of information out there as of this time. Inter would love to keep him for he is lethal before goal, however they have been discouraged by his performances on the big stage such as for example his lackluster efforts in Champions League games. A striker of his immense quality and capability in order to complete seemingly impossible efforts at goal can make him a huge target in the off season.
Where He Will End Up: If he does indeed leave Inter, do not be surprised to get him at Chelsea or Barcelona. With the talk that Drogba will leave Chelsea as of this season’s end, Zlatan is an able replacement and plays in exactly the same manner that Didier Drogba does. Barca is seeking a real, tall power forward and Zlatan definitely fits that bill. I feel the only way Inter will retain his services is if there are no major changes in the front office or for their head coach. Seeing as there is guaranteed to become a shakeup in both areas in the off season, Zlatan might be headed out and there will be a large bidding war for his efforts.
