January transfer live update: Balotelli to AC Milan, Butland reject Chelsea, Crouch to QPR?

January 30, 2013


Mario Balotelli, the bad boy of Manchester United is set to join AC Milan from Manchester City. Balotelli has joined the EPL side in 2010 from Inter Milan. The player enjoyed a good period with City, but it is his off field behaviour that has not gone well with City and his relationship with Mancini, which must have led him return back to Italy.

Arsene Wenger has not given up his hope of signing Spain and Barcelona’s striker, David Villa. It has been rumoured that the club has started negotiation to sign the striker from Barcelona. Wenger is in a desperate need to sign to strengthen his attacking options even after having players such as Giroud, Podolski in his forward line.

Jack Butland has been one of the most wanted goalkeepers in the EPL with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea interested in acquiring his services. Butland is said to have held talks with Chelsea for a possible move but the deal is said to have failed, as the English player wants to stay at Birmingham City. It was understood if the player would sign for the European Champions, he would have been second fiddle to Peter Cech.

Queens Park Rangers after securing a deal with Loic Remy is looking for another striker and it seems Stoke City’s striker might be heading over to QPR to reunite with Harry Redknapp. This deal could also include Jamie Mackie from Queens Park Rangers along with GBP 5 million. It could be a smart move for Stoke City as well. QPR is also interested in West Brom’s Peter Odemwingie.

Blackburn goalkeeper and a former England number one, Paul Robinson may join West Ham, where their reserve goalie Stephen Henderson might move to Blackburn.

Coutinho is expected to be unveiled as a Liverpool player today.

Tottenham Hotspur is expected to make a final bid to sign Leandro Damiao, the Brazilian forward from Internacional for GBP 15 million deal.
