Summer time transfer window is poised to create big changes and an overwhelming amount of speculation just want it does every year. Below is the fourth installment of a series of articles that examines the speculation and the fantasy relevance of every possible move.
David Villa – Valencia : Villa is among the top targets this off season because it appears he is destined to leave Valencia at the end of the year. Valencia’s finances have led many to think that they will sell off most of these quality players in order to cut payroll and Villa likely will fetch them the absolute most money in return. Villa is really a quality finisher, and paired alongside Fernando Torres, he helped lead Spain to the EURO 2008 title. Villa has caught the eyes of the biggest and most wealthy clubs, and it will certainly be a challenge between them to find out where David Villa will end up.
Where He Will End Up: The list has narrowed considerably but really has three to four worthy contenders. Manchester City is involved as they try and buy any superstar they are able to using their newly attained limit-less budget. Chelsea in addition has shown a pursuit yet they be seemingly keen to find a forward just like the one they are likely replacing (Drogba) and that role could possibly be fitted more for Zlatan than Villa. The 2 biggest teams in Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona, are generally in contention as well. Valencia has the mindset when they sell him, they don’t id my window part want to manage him, which may make more sense to send him to England. However, it is yet to unfold what will happen but my money is on that Villa will find yourself 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 looking to play someplace else in the ’09/’10 season and is not content to keep at Inter. This example is among the hardest to decipher for there’s not an excessive amount of information out there as of this time. Inter would love to help keep him for he is lethal in front of goal, however they’ve been discouraged by his performances on the big stage such as his lackluster efforts in Champions League games. A striker of his immense quality and capability in order to complete seemingly impossible efforts at goal will make him a massive target in the off season.
Where He Will End Up: If he does indeed leave Inter, do not 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 an able replacement and plays in the exact same manner that Didier Drogba does. Barca is seeking a real, tall power forward and Zlatan definitely fits that bill. I’m the only way Inter will retain his services is if you can find no major changes in the front office or to their head coach. Since there’s guaranteed to become a shakeup in both areas in the off season, Zlatan is probably headed out and there will certainly be considered a large bidding war for his efforts.
