Summer time transfer window is poised to bring big changes and an overwhelming level of speculation just want it does every year. Below is the 3rd installment of a series of articles that examines the speculation and the fantasy relevance of every possible move.
Fernando Torres – Liverpool : Fernando Torres is one of the most elite strikers in the world and is a constant scoring threat for Liverpool in the Premier League. Torres has put up big scoring numbers and has orchestrated chances and goals where most could not. Liverpool is set to identify a window part hold on for their young Spanish striker but his success has caused wealthy clubs to lineup enormous bids for Torres. Liverpool should retain Torres for you can find very few players of his caliber in the world and losing him would have been a near irreplaceable blow for their attack.
Where He Will End Up: He likely will stay in Liverpool regardless of the efforts to pry him away. Manchester City is reportedly lining up a massive bid of 50 million Euros to snatch Torres away nonetheless it still seems unlikely he’ll leave the Reds. Torres is happy at Liverpool and has made a sudden impact upon switching leagues that is something which few players have now been in a position to do. Manchester City will endeavour their utmost, but I believe they will ultimately fail in bringing Torres over.
Didier Drogba – Chelsea: As previously mentioned in a previous installment of this series, Drogba seems to be headed out from the Chelsea ranks. It had been believed Drogba might have left mid-season amongst the speculation he was unhappy at Stamford Bridge. However, he remained yet the rumors of his departure remain and have intensified as the entire year wore on. Drogba will be sought by a handful of teams that are all desperate to locate a lethal physical striker such as Drogba.
Where He Will End Up: Too soon to say where he’ll land, but it’s clear he will soon be leaving Chelsea only at that point. Manchester City is keen to bring him over to strengthen their attack and have plenty of financial resources to sweeten the deal. Other teams including the Italian sides AC Milan and Inter Milan likewise have Drogba on their wish list hoping to simply help their chances within their respective league and in the Champions League tournament. Likely this will fall to who’s prepared to pay/offer more and Manchester City holds the advantage there. Expect Manchester City to land a large collection of players in the off season and keep clear of how this will impact all of those switching sides and their fantasy value.
