World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31386669 Classic duo Classic+duo World

The US presidential battle between Obama and Romney is in full swing and with just two weeks until election day polls suggest it’s too close to call. But which act can we relate this high-profile duel to Rumor Redux? Well we’re looking for a duo who have been at loggerheads in the past and who have a political bent. Check. They were certainly more in tune than Barack and Mitt when they sung about the candidate’s debate on Mrs. Robinson. They are of course Simon and Garfunkel.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387234 Radamel Falcao, F, Atletico Madrid Radamel+Falcao%2C+F%2C+Atletico+Madrid World

RUMOR: ATLETICO MADRID TO MANCHESTER CITY
LIKELIHOOD: When’s the bidding going to start?

At Manchester City the mantra is always to keep the customer satisfied which means refreshing the squad every season with mega-bucks signings. Roberto Mancini is interested in Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic, but the man they really want is Falcao, whose price went up a few more euros with his last-minute free-kick winner at Real Sociedad on Sunday. City’s chief scout has said Jovetic would not improve their squad but Falcao most certainly would. The problem is everyone wants him, which means the usual battle with Chelsea and Real Madrid. We think Atletico will eventually crack and sell, the questions are two-fold: When? And to whom? Start the auction.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387235 Gareth Bale, M, Tottenham Gareth+Bale%2C+M%2C+Tottenham World

RUMOR: TOTTENHAM TO REAL MADRID
LIKELIHOOD: Not for now

Luka Modric has been doing the dirty work for Jose Mourinho by telling the press how much he would love to have Gareth Bale at Real Madrid. These old friends would certainly light up the Bernabeu given the chance but we think Bale is enjoying life at the Lane, and although we can’t ruled out a move in the future, the Welsh wizard is staying put for now.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387419 Sergio Busquets, M, Barcelona Sergio+Busquets%2C+M%2C+Barcelona World

RUMOR: BARCELONA TO MANCHESTER CITY
LIKELIHOOD: Not at that price

He may have the looks of a boxer, but this bruiser has been linked with a £60million move to Manchester City. You heard that correctly – that’s $96m to you and I. The defensive midfielder is reportedly open to leaving Camp Nou at the end of the season, although nothing is out in the open. This all simply means ‘make me an offer to stay.’ Chelsea have also entered the fray, although the European champion is considering a more sensible £24m offer. The question we all have to ask ourselves is ‘why would he want to leave?’

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387236 Ryan Shawcross, D, Stoke Ryan+Shawcross%2C+D%2C+Stoke World

RUMOR: STOKE TO MANCHESTER UNITED
LIKELIHOOD: MAYBE IN THE FUTURE BUT NOT THIS SEASON

It’s official. Alex Ferguson makes mistakes. Who says so? The man himself. In Saturday’s pre-match program notes the Scot wrote that he wished he had kept Ryan Shawcross instead of selling him to Stoke four years ago. So, is Shawcross homeward bound and heading for a reunion with Fergie in January? Not according to Potters boss Tony Pulis, who reckons there is “no chance. It has been a good marriage.” We can’t think of a time when Ferguson re-signed a player but don’t rule it out – although expect him to pay slightly more than his transfer fee.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387237 Javier Hernandez, F, Manchester United Javier+Hernandez%2C+F%2C+Manchester+United World

RUMOR: MANCHESTER UNITED TO ATLETICO MADRID
LIKELIHOOD: Only if Falcao is sold

Falcao is the man turning the transfer wheel at the moment but should Atletico ever sell the Colombia hot shot for a reported £46million the Spanish outfit will need to find a replacement. Step forward Chicharito, who was actually linked with an £8million move to Fiorentina last week. The Italians would be a tempting proposition, but not as much as Atletico, who are looking a better bet for a Champions League spot. The sound of silence from the Hernandez camp is deafening but there isn’t a great deal to talk about until a club comes clean – or the Falcao situation is resolved, and that won’t happen any time soon.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387243 Kevin-Prince Boateng, M, AC Milan Kevin-Prince+Boateng%2C+M%2C+AC+Milan World

RUMOR: AC MILAN TO BAYERN MUNICH
LIKELIHOOD: No chance

Last week we mentioned the possibility of a Premier League return for Boateng because of the high-profile exits at the San Siro, but the gossip has continued apace with Bayern Munich the latest club to be mentioned in dispatches. Boateng has now come forward to kill two bids with one stone. He’s not interested in the Bundesliga or the Premier League and he certainly isn’t fakin’ it. “I am very happy at Milan and am clearly not packing my bags. Milan is a club I owe a lot to.”

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387246 Frank Lampard, M, Chelsea Frank+Lampard%2C+M%2C+Chelsea World

RUMOR: CHELSEA TO LOS ANGELES GALAXY
LIKELIHOOD: Gathering momentum

He’s not Frank Lloyd Wright, but he has been the architect of many a Chelsea victory, although recently Roberto di Matteo has found that he doesn’t actually need the midfielder to win matches. That has fueled the speculation that Lamps is heading for America and a reunion with his former England colleague David Beckham. The silence is deafening from the Blues hierarchy so we think there’s substance to this story. Maybe a year in LA followed by a coaching role at Stamford Bridge? Don’t count it out.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387244 Daniel Sturridge, F, Chelsea Daniel+Sturridge%2C+F%2C+Chelsea World

RUMOR: CHELSEA TO LIVERPOOL
LIKELIHOOD: Up in the air

You have to feel sorry for Sturridge, who has fallen out of favor since Roberto di Matteo took over from Andre Villas-Boas. The striker is once again playing second fiddle to Fernando Torres and it looks like his time with the Blues is coming to a close. Sturridge has been linked with a move to Liverpool, who are in desperate need of a forward and £15million has been mooted as a transfer fee. Whether Sturridge will cross the bridge over troubled water and join the Anfield gang remains to be seen, as the Reds never seem to have any money; but if they can afford him, they should get in there quickly.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387242 Nicolas Gaitan, M, Benfica Nicolas+Gaitan%2C+M%2C+Benfica World

RUMOR: BENFICA TO ANZHI
LIKELIHOOD: Possibility is growing

There was a time when Gaitan looked to be heading for Manchester United but that was a long time ago – six months in fact. We didn’t think too much about that rumor at the time, but there now seems to be movement on the transfer front, although Old Trafford will not be the Argentine’s destination. Instead, it looks like Gaitan could be the latest to join the rich club at Anzhi. Sporting director Roberto Carlos says they “are expecting a good solution for all parties.” Who are we to argue with the great man?

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 22 - 28 31387245 Andre Santos, D, Arsenal Andre+Santos%2C+D%2C+Arsenal World

RUMOR: ARSENAL TO GALATASARAY
LIKELIHOOD: Who knows

Santos would be forgiven for thinking ‘can’t help but wonder where I’m bound’ after he was linked with a return to Turkey. The Brazilian joined Arsenal from Fenerbahce in the summer but his most famous moment to date is receiving a 12-month driving ban for driving at 145mph in rush hour. Impressive. Galatasaray are now in the drivers seat to sign the left-back, who is behind Kieran Gibbs in the pecking order. A deal is a possibility, according to Gala’s chief exec, although Santos is just one of a number of players being discussed. However, with Gibbs out injured, Santos started the 1-0 defeat at Norwich and the player himself says he wants to stay at Arsenal for a long time. We think he’ll stay.
