Summer time transfer window is poised to bring big changes and an overwhelming level of speculation just like it does every year. Below is the fourth installment of some articles that examines the speculation and the fantasy relevance of every possible move.
David Villa – Valencia : Villa is one of many top targets this off season as it appears he’s destined to leave Valencia at the conclusion of the year. Valencia’s finances have led many to trust that they can sell off most of these quality players to be able to cut payroll and Villa likely will fetch them probably the most money in return. Villa is 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 find out where David Villa will end up.
Where He Will End Up: The list has narrowed considerably but still has three to four worthy contenders. Manchester City is involved as they fight 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 locate a forward similar to the one they’re likely replacing (Drogba) and that role would probably be fitted more for Zlatan than Villa. Both biggest teams in Spain, identify a window part Real Madrid and Barcelona, are generally in contention as well. Valencia has got the mindset that if they sell him, they don’t want to face him, which would make more sense to send him to England. However, it is yet to unfold what’ll 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 can be in Series A in Italy, and has accumulated various goals for Inter Milan. However, the rumors have swirled that he is trying to play elsewhere in the ’09/’10 season and is not content to stay at Inter. This example 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 help keep him for he’s lethal before goal, however they have been discouraged by his performances on the big stage such as for instance his lackluster efforts in Champions League games. A striker of his immense quality and capability to complete seemingly impossible efforts at goal could make him an enormous target in the off season.
Where He Will End Up: If he does indeed leave Inter, don’t be surprised to locate him at Chelsea or Barcelona. With the talk that Drogba will leave Chelsea as of this season’s end, Zlatan is a ready replacement and plays in the exact same manner that Didier Drogba does. Barca is seeking a physical, tall power forward and Zlatan definitely fits that bill. Personally i think the only path Inter will retain his services is if there are no major changes in the leading office or with their head coach. Seeing that there is guaranteed to be a shakeup in both areas in the off season, Zlatan is probably headed out and there will be considered a large bidding war for his efforts.
