Rooney To Leave Man Utd - Cisse Bid Could Happen!
Published : 31 May 2012 13:09:33
We started our round-up today with a rumour that Man Utd were sniffing about Papiss Cisse ... and that could happen because ...
... there is allegedly a £120 million bid for Wayne Rooney by Paris St Germain.
The story claims that PSG's Qatari backers are sick of the difficulty they are having persuading the best players in the world to come to the club, so will make the move as a statement of intent that they will not rest until they are Champions League winners.
OUR EARLIER ARTICLE ....
Berbatov Sale Key To Cisse Moving To Man Utd?
We read yesterday that Sir Alex Ferguson sees Papiss Cisse the answer to his striking replacement for Dimitar Berbatov.
Just newspaper talk?
I don't know, to be honest.
Obviously Ferguson is in the market for two strikers, but the rumoured offer of £15m for Cisse would be laughed at by Mike Ashley.
£20m ... could see "£" signs in Ashley's eyes.
However, Bayer Leverkusen chief executive Wolfgang Holzhauer has ruled out re-signing Berbatov this summer.
Berbatov has been linked with a return to his former club, with whom he spent five seasons before joining Tottenham in 2006, after making it clear he feels he no longer has a future at Old Trafford.
The Bulgarian frontman, who arrived at United from Spurs four years ago, has grown frustrated at the club after falling down Sir Alex Ferguson's pecking order, making just 12 Premier League appearances this season, seven of which came off the bench.
The 31-year-old is expected to move on this summer despite the club taking up an extra year's option on his contract in March which saw his deal extended until June 2013.EURO 2012 GROUP STAGES Friday June 8 Warsaw, Group A: Poland v Greece (1700) Wroclaw, Group A: Russia v Czech Republic (1945) Saturday June 9 Kharkiv, Group B: Holland v Denmark (1700) Lviv, Group B: Germany v Portugal (1945) Sunday June 10 Gdansk, Group C: Spain v Italy (1700) Poznan, Group C: Republic of Ireland v Croatia (1945) Monday June 11 Donetsk, Group D: France v England (1700) Kiev, Group D: Ukraine v Sweden (1945) Tuesday June 12 Wroclaw, Group A: Greece v Czech Republic (1700) Warsaw, Group A: Poland v Russia (1945) Wednesday June 13 Lviv, Group B: Denmark v Portugal (1700) Kharkiv, Group B: Holland v Germany (1945) Thursday June 14 Poznan, Group C: Italy v Croatia (1700) Gdansk, Group C: Spain v Republic of Ireland (1945) Friday June 15 Donetsk, Group D: Ukraine v France (1700) Kiev, Group D: Sweden v England (1945) Saturday June 16 Wroclaw, Group A: Czech Republic v Poland (1945) Warsaw, Group A: Greece v Russia (1945) Sunday June 17 Kharkiv, Group B: Portugal v Holland (1945) Lviv, Group B: Denmark v Germany (1945) Monday June 18 Gdansk, Group C: Croatia v Spain (1945) Poznan, Group C: Italy v Republic of Ireland (1945) Tuesday June 19 Donetsk, Group D: England v Ukraine (1945) Kiev, Group D: Sweden v France (1945) QUARTER-FINALS Thursday June 21 Warsaw, QF1: Winner A v Runner-up B (1945) Friday June 22 Gdansk, QF2: Winner B v Runner-up A (1945) Saturday June 23 Donetsk, QF3: Winner C v Runner-up D (1945) Sunday June 24 Kiev, QF4: Winner D v Runner-up C (1945) SEMI-FINALS Wednesday June 27 Donetsk, SF1: Winner QF1 v Winner QF3 (1945) Thursday June 28 Warsaw, SF2: Winner QF2 v Winner QF4 (1945) FINAL Sunday July 1 Kiev: Winner SF1 v Winner SF2 (1945)
