We will start today with what might be this summers epic transfer saga involving yet another Spurs player. This time it is the turn of Gareth Bale who is not bound for the Etihad Stadium says City manager Roberto Mancini. “Bale is a fantastic player” said the City boss. “But I don’t think he will leave a big team like Tottenham”.
Fulham boss Martin Jol has shrugged off Liverpool’s interest in his 29-year old American striker Clint Dempsey. “I am not bothered about it” he declared.

Newcastle and Tottenham are interested in the services of German international defender Serdar Tasci, 25. However they face stiff competition from rival suitors Roma and Juventus. Elsewhere at White Hart Lane manager Harry Redknapp admits that he still has not been offered a new contract, despite having only one year of his current deal remaining. Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers and Wigan’s Roberto Martinez are being linked with the role. The Tottenham boss has also warned the club that they should not even entertain selling Croatian schemer Luka Modric. The silky skilled midfielder was the subject of a bid from Chelsea last summer, while Manchester City are the latest club to be linked with his services.
On-loan Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson admits it will feel odd if he has to return to Germany in the summer. “its difficult to say if I miss Hoffenheim. I have friends there but I wasn’t playing, was hardly ever really happy. I just want to play football, but I was training, sitting on the bench, training again. Every week.”
Meanwhile on the continent Hoffenheim are making more headlines. They plan to raid Championship side Crystal palace for highly-rated youngster Wilfried Zaha. They hope the £4m rated 19-year old winger might be tempted by a move to the Bundesliga big time.
