Latin America 2741 8 Top five transfer rumors - September 29, 2011 30217440 L.A. on my mind L.A.+on+my+mind Latin America

Are you tired of the Carlos Tevez saga at Manchester City? Then perfect.

Welcome to FOX Soccer's daily Rumor Redux. We will do our best to shift gears from all the drama that's brewing in Manchester and offer you the best rumors that have circulated around cyberspace for the day.

But before we engage with the top five rumors, we have to visit an old Rumor Redux friend in Los Angeles. Yes, you guessed it, David Beckham.

The latest news from 'Tinseltown' has David Beckham renewing his contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy after the end of the 2011 season. FOX Deportes' very own, Rene Romano, captured an exclusive interview with the English footballer after the Galaxy's CONCACAF Champions League game versus Morelia on Wednesday night, for which Beckham disclosed his profound 'loyalty' to the Los Angeles organization and squashed the PSG transfer rumors. Beckham, who still has hopes of participating in EURO 2012, would 'only' consider a move to Tottenham or QPR on a short-term loan basis; as Beckham and his family are 'comfortable' in Los Angeles.

Whether or not Beckham will flee in the winter remains to be seen. In the meantime, here are the day's top five rumors, a follow-up from our daily Paper Chase edition.

Latin America 2741 8 Top five transfer rumors - September 29, 2011 30222212 Dede, CB, Vasco de Gama Dede%2C+CB%2C+Vasco+de+Gama Latin America

Rumor: headed to Valencia during the January transfer window.

Likelihood: low.

The talented Brazilian defender from Volta Redonda has long been rumored with a possible move to Europe since last year. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Dede has been shortlisted by Valencia, although the price for the Vasco de Roma sweeper could take Los Che out of contention. Without question, Dede’s transfer price has taken a sharp increase due to his recent inclusion to Mano Menezes’ Brazilian national team squad.

Aside from the heavy price tag, Valencia will also have stiff competition from other European teams to land the tall Brazilian defender. Fiorentina, Roma, and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked to Dede, with the latter clubs having received strong financial injections. As much as Valencia needs help in the defensive line, the bidding war maybe too high for ‘The Orange’ to engage in during the winter.

Latin America 2741 8 Top five transfer rumors - September 29, 2011 30218248 Giuseppe Rossi, F/W, Villarreal Giuseppe+Rossi%2C+F%2FW%2C+Villarreal Latin America

Rumor: headed to the Serie A in the January transfer window.

Likelihood: low, but high in the summer of 2012

Giuseppe Rossi’s agent Javier Pastorello has recently hinted to the Italian media that his client could end up in with a Serie A club come January. Even though Rossi’s Champions League eligibility is tied up with Villarreal for the 2011-2012 season, the Jersey-born striker has long been rumored to exit the Madrigal, even if it means that his services would be limited in European competition.

It seems that Pastorello has made it a personal mission to have the Jersey-born striker leave Villarreal as quickly as possible. Barcelona was in the running for the talented Italian during the summer, but a move never materialized. Even then, Rossi’s camp felt that a move to Italy made more sense than a move to the Catalonia capital. Pastorello has mentioned that Napoli would be willing to bid for Rossi during an interview with Radio Kiss Kiss, so far as to suggest that Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis asked about Rossi’s club status before Napoli’s UEFA Champions League match against Villarreal. We’re not really sure what to make of Pastorello’s comments now, but we highly doubt that Villarreal will sell arguably their best player in January. For now, we’re keeping this rumor low.

Latin America 2741 8 Top five transfer rumors - September 29, 2011 30222213 Ahmed Musa, F/W, VVV-Venio Ahmed+Musa%2C+F%2FW%2C+VVV-Venio Latin America

Rumor: headed to Arsenal.

Likelihood: low.

What a surprise, another Arsenal reference in our daily Rumor Redux edition. This time, the Gunners have their eyes set on a talented 18-year-old Nigerian forward who impressed many during the Under-20 World Cup. Arsene Wenger, always attentive to the young talents in world football, will definitely have to work to recruit Musa to the Emirates, as other world entities such as Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, and Tottenham have already met with Musa’s representatives this past summer.

Musa, who averages a goal for every three games, is a long time admirer of the London based club and was recently quoted as telling Tribal Football, “"I would like to play for Arsenal, but this is because I've always been a fan of Nwankwo Kanu.” From the sounds of it, the Nigerian speedster wants to follow the footstes of a Super Eagle legend . Will Wenger answer the call? Its too tough to tell being that Arsenal’s in the running for all the young football starlets in the world. We need to hear more noise out of the VVV-Venio camp before we can elevate this rumor’s level.

Latin America 2741 8 Top five transfer rumors - September 29, 2011 30222214 Gregory van der Wiel, RB, AFC Ajax Gregory+van+der+Wiel%2C+RB%2C+AFC+Ajax Latin America

Rumor: headed to Bayern Munich in the January transfer window.

Likelihood: low.

Bayern Munich heavily recruited the Dutch defender to the Bundesliga in the summer. Unfortunately for the Bavarians, Ajax denied Munich’s multiple offers and van der Wiel remained with the Eredivise champions for another season. After the rejections, you would think Bayern would get the hint, right?

Guess again. According to reports from Itasport Press, Munich is preparing for a 12 millions euro offer to land the 23-year-old to Allianz Arena in January. Bayern understands that the player in cup tied for the UEFA Champions League with Ajax, but will go “all out” to capture the promising right back.

Given this fact, it is tough to see Ajax agreeing to any possible move involving van der Wiel. The Amsterdam club is looking to repeat as league champion and wants to secure a place in next year’s Champions League. Van der Wiel offers will come, but we don’t expect Ajax to bite the bullet.

Latin America 2741 8 Top five transfer rumors - September 29, 2011 30222211 Michael Owen, F, Manchester United Michael+Owen%2C+F%2C+Manchester+United Latin America

Rumor: headed to Arsenal or the New York Red Bulls after his contract expires in June 2012.

Likelihood: too soon to tell at this point.

Michael Owen’s contract with Manchester United ends in June 2012., Sir Alex Ferguson gave the 31-year-old striker a new opportunity, although minutes are hard to find at Old Trafford because of the high level of competition up front for the Red Devils.

Enter Arsenal and the New York Red Bulls to the picture. According to the British press, the Gunners are planning to offer 1.1 million euros to United during the winter transfer window, with the promise of offering the former England international more minutes at the Emirates. On the other hand, the New York Red Bulls have also expressed their desire to land the former Liverpool and Real Madrid forward, but face a tougher challenge as New York has three designated players on their roster; i.e. Thierry Henry, Rafael Marquez, and Frank Rost.

With all this on the table, Owen has suggested that he would like to continue at Manchester United. Nonetheless, Owen will be foolish not to entertain offers presented to him after his contract expires. Where Owen will decide to go will depend on the best possible package: both compensation and playing time.
