The January transfer window is almost in its final stage and the media outlets are churning out transfer rumours frantically every day.
Now, some of these rumours are so ludicrous that you can’t do anything but laugh at them. Take a look at five crazy transfer rumours from the January window.
5) Aaron Ramsey to Barcelona
Ask any Arsenal fan and he will tell you that this is not going to happen in a thousand years. Arsene Wenger has stopped selling his star players and Barcelona don’t really need Ramsey, do they? Not at £50 million for sure.
4) Shane Long to Liverpool
It doesn’t really feature under the ‘ludicrous’ category, but it did shock most of the Liverpool fans. It came out of nowhere and the Reds’ fans were not at all prepared for transfer links with the second-choice Southampton striker.
3) Eden Hazard to Manchester City and Manchester United
Chelsea know better than to sell their best player to Premier League rivals. Especially after the transfer of Petr Cech. And unlike Hazard, Cech had great relations with the club and he wasn’t a part of the starting eleven anymore. If Chelsea ever decide to sell Hazard, they will sell him to a non-Premier League club.
2) Aymen Abdennour to Chelsea
No disrespect to the Valencia defender, but he isn’t exactly Chelsea level. After pursuing Everton defender John Stones for so long, the Blues aren’t suddenly going to turn their attention to a player who has managed only five league appearances for Valencia in La Liga this season.
1) Direct swap between Gareth Bale and David de Gea
Now this is stuff made of pure imagination. Real Madrid must think that Bale is worth £100+ million and no goalkeeper in the world can demand that sort of money. Also, any transfer swap of those proportions is not going to happen in the January transfer window.
