Sick of Sneijder saga…and other transfer gossip

The summer transfer window will soon be slammed shut. Rumours will escalate in the next two weeks but as usual, very few will have genuine substance so they should be taken with a large grain of salt. Yet they cannot be completely ignored in case there’s the slightest bit of truth in them. Some media outlets are obviously more reliable than others so Truly Reds is prepared to report the gossip and give a rating of 1 to 5 as to how believable it’s likely be. A rating of 1 can almost certainly be dismissed out of hand while a 5 may give the story some merit and warrant a small wager. Have a look at the latest United transfer gossip being reported but be warned – only believe what you want.

Everyone must be as sick and tired of the Wesley Sneijder saga as I have become. It’s now got to the stage where I really believe that signing a 27 year old who’s not even sure that he DESIRES a move to Old Trafford will turn out to be a huge mistake. Sneijder has been repeatedly linked with a move to United throughout the summer transfer window and has hinted at unofficial talks with the champions. It now seems that United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has again been proven to be absolutely right in his judgement – AGAIN.

Despite Inter President Massimo Moratti earlier publicly stating that the Holland international will be allowed to leave for the right price, La Gazzetta dello Sport is today quoting him as saying  “Sneijder away? For Wes there has never been any sort of negotiation. If Eto’o leaves, Wes remains. Sneijder was untouchable even before this hypothesis, now it is even more so.” As far as I’m concerned, the highly talented midfielder should never be linked to United again. I really hope that this transfer can only be RATED – 1

Click Manchester seem to think Marseille coach Jose Anigo’s suggestion that Mathieu Valbuena could leave the club will alert Sir Alex. The report appears to be on the back of the player’s own desire to play for United, as he revealed in May he would cycle all the way to Old Trafford to wear the red shirt. Anigo was actually talking to RMC about another club’s interest in the France midfielder, saying: “If Arsenal want to buy him, discussions can be opened. Out of respect for the player, the club may open the door.” RATED – 2

Blackburn manager Steve Kean is said to be in the market for a central midfielder and is apparently targeting United’s Darren Gibson on a season long loan. The Rovers boss, who had an ambitious bid for legendary Spanish striker Raul turned down yesterday, will move for the Republic of Ireland international in the coming days, according to The Sun RATED – 3 

And here’s another who could be on the way out of Old Trafford. Goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is one of  two or three options being considered by Celtic manager Neil Lennon, according to the Herald Scotland. The Poland international has had limited appearances at United since he signed for the club in 2007, and transfer speculation has been particularly loud since David De Gea joined the club in June RATED – 2

Should Sneijder still be welcome at Old Trafford?
