Also saw Aquilani's agent categorically deny he was cancelling his contract and becoming a free agent.
From the Daily Fail so must be 100%
Liverpool have been linked with a £6.5million move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Raul Garcia.
The 25-year-old cost almost £9million when Atletico signed him from Osasuna five years ago, but he will be allowed to leave after falling out of boss Diego Simeone’s plans.
I've always quite liked Raul García.
Would be interesting to see if he could make the step up though.
What's also intriguing is that he's in no way a defensive midfielder, which means that with Sigurdsson we'd have a ridiculous amount of CMs at the club.
Tito vilanova at his unveiling press conference talked about strengthening the Barca defence and doesn't expect to add any players in the forward position.
He named all the forwards and then continued to say and we all so have youth players Cuenca & ( Tello )but said in a way that he expects them to play a part next season.
Obviously you can take that either way but just thought I would update
I'd rather get Javi García from Benfica if we were going to sign anyone with that last name.
Come On Gylfi !!! Jump On Board The Red Machine !!!
im getting a little bored of this sigurdsson talk now he's chattin to swansea 1st then go for him if he's available after that then we hear he's coming to us but he's speaking to them out of politness and then we hear on sky sports news he's talking to a few prem clubs i mean does he want to play for us or not !
He had a verbal agreement with Swansea, Rodgers said he would talk to him but only after he had talked to Swansea. He has done that and is now in talks with us. No one said he was coming to Liverpool, just that it was likely. there has been no agreement.
I'm not sure I believe about the 'other clubs' anyway. Probably just his agent trying to drive up his price.
Here's that link he's talking about the United comments. http://www.fotbolti.net/fullStory.php?id=104208
Now according to google translator, this is the one where he said ManU is his favorite team in English football.
Ory Pham, August Flame Petursson, Isaac Jonasson, Atli Sigmundsson, Ivar Moon Garðarsson
What is your favorite team in English football?
There was another comment about the EPL being his dream so you can assume ManU is his team. Means nothing when it comes to your profession though so we'll see. He wouldn't be the first player to love another team when he grew up and then had to change when opportunity came knocking. There are so many examples I don't think it's honestly that big of a deal. If it comes down to it, *** for tat, he'd pick United, but with their squad situation, playing time, system, Rodgers, there are way to many variables to say he'd go to United just because it's his team.
It's nice being a supporter, none of the messy professionalism business. I love Liverpool, and since no other club will ever come in for me, offer to pay me well and develop me, I'll never have to examine my feelings.
Much like I would suspect that Sigurdsson would think when it comes to us - a great opportunity for him playing for a sleeping giant.
We've been inked to Howedes today..the source is Caught offside but still..it's a transfers rumors thread after all
I wouldn't say they have a deeper squad either, they are desperate to replace Scholes who they have had to bring out of retirement. But like I said its moot because they don't appear to be in for him.
As each team goes home from the Euro's the more players we'll be linked with.
