Summer time transfer window is poised to bring big changes and an overwhelming level of speculation just like it does every year. Below may be the fourth installment of some articles that examines the speculation and the fantasy relevance of each possible move.
David Villa – Valencia : Villa is one of the top targets this off season since it appears he’s destined to leave Valencia by the end of the year. Valencia’s finances have led many to believe that they can sell off most of these quality players in order to cut payroll and Villa likely will fetch them the most profit return. Villa is a quality finisher, and paired alongside Fernando Torres, he helped lead Spain to the id my window part EURO 2008 title. Villa has caught the eyes of the largest and most wealthy clubs, and it will be a battle between them to find out where David Villa will end up.
Where He Will End Up: The list has narrowed considerably but still has 3 or 4 worthy contenders. Manchester City is involved as they try and buy any superstar they could making use of their newly attained limit-less budget. Chelsea has also shown a pastime yet they be seemingly keen to locate a forward similar to the one they’re likely replacing (Drogba) and that role may possibly be fitted more for Zlatan than Villa. The 2 biggest teams in Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona, are both in contention as well. Valencia has the mindset that when 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 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 could be in Series A in Italy, and has accumulated a plethora of goals for Inter Milan. However, the rumors have swirled he is trying to play somewhere else in the ’09/’10 season and isn’t content to remain at Inter. This example is one of the hardest to decipher for there is not too much information on the market only at that time. Inter would want to help keep him for he’s lethal before goal, however they’ve 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 will make him a massive target in the off season.
Where He Will End Up: If he does indeed leave Inter, don’t be surprised to find him at Chelsea or Barcelona. With the talk that Drogba will leave Chelsea only at that season’s end, Zlatan is a capable replacement and plays in the same manner that Didier Drogba does. Barca is seeking a physical, tall power forward and Zlatan definitely fits that bill. I feel the only way Inter will retain his services is if there are no major changes in the front office or to their head coach. Since there is guaranteed to become a shakeup in both areas in the off season, Zlatan might be headed out and there will be described as a large bidding war for his efforts.
