Wolves are interested in my Chinese cousin

Struggling to piece together Kirk's transfer news.

Several for someone his age anyway, at 24 he hasn't even peaked.

Still a lot of shite though.

He had an excellent season last season, from a goal-scoring perspective, but a lot of those goals covered a lot of shite performances as well. Any other season he's mostly been pish, apart from a few outstanding performances against Inter.

If he was to go there as the world's most expensive player it'd be the biggest joke ever.

I can't say that's how I saw him, previous couple of seasons only Modric was ahead of him as Spurs' best player.

World's most expensive player thing is an unexpected tag but clearly Real are determined and Spurs don't feel pressurised to sell on the cheap.

Does Schurrle fit in?

Possibly, but interesting what this new role for Mata means, probably Essien and Ramires as holding mids most weeks. Unless Ba leaves and Rooney plays as lone striker with Torres as a ''super sub'' which he isnt ... strange, why Mourinho targetted Rooney, instead of Falcao/Cavani

They did target Cavani didn't they, just weren't ready to go as high as PSG were?

I'm sure you were among many that we're baffled at the plaudits he was getting from the media a few seasons back.

Short memory. :)

Possibly, but I did always think there was a tendency to underrate him from some as well.

If he fails at Real Madrid then he'll certainly be remembered as the world's most expensive flop.

Several is certainly pushing it, he's had a couple of great seasons in regards to productivity, but I'm in agreement with King Jela that many performances last season where he scored a wonder goal he wasn't involved in the games, even heard Spurs fans admit this.

Bale's price shouldn't be any higher than Falcao or Cavani.

Cesc Fabregas: Man United still keen despite Barca claims

Manchester United remain keen to pursue a deal for Cesc Fabregas despite Barcelona claiming they have given up on signing the Spain midfielder. The Premier League champions have already had two offers for the 26-year-old former Arsenal captain turned down. Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta told a Spanish newspaper United have "renounced his signing".

But sources close to the English champions have indicated they are considering a third bid for Fabregas.

Any bid over £30.75m would exceed United's transfer record and the player remains the main target of new manager David Moyes with four weeks remaining until the summer transfer window closes.

Zubizarreta, speaking in Israel where the Catalan giants are currently on tour, told Spanish newspaper Sport the player is going nowhere.

He has winner's medals from the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2008 and 2012 he won his first league title when Barcelona took La Liga's top spot last season "Manchester United are interested in the player, but it's also true that they understand our position of not wanting to sell," said the ex-Spain goalkeeper.

"They have renounced his signing. We aren't going to sell him." Zubizarreta added on Barcelona's official website: "He has a contract with us. We count on Cesc.

"He's an extraordinary player who creates and finishes chances. We are delighted with him. He's the number four of Barca."

Fabregas moved to the Nou Camp from Arsenal in 2011 in a £35m deal and has since helped his boyhood club to a La Liga title, a Copa Del Rey victory, the Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup.

Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino claims it would be up to the Spain international where he played next season and Arsenal are understood to have first option on Fabregas. However, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger believes the player will remain in Spain.

"What I know is Fabregas will stay one more year at least in Barcelona," said the Frenchman. "That's the information I have. If that changes, I don't know, but that is what I have been told."

Several was maybe the wrong word but I feel since he established himself as a left winger he's always looked a cracking player, bearing in mind his age as well.
