Thierry Henry has said that he wants to finish his career in USA with good friend David Beckham. Henry,31, looks as if he will ignore interest from English clubs to see his career out in America. I'm sure there are a number of clubs that would love to have one of the Premierships all time great goal-scorers back.
"I've been at the top level for 15 years. My career will end soon and as a striker things go more quickly."
Reports today have reviled that Arsenal are looking to sign Manchester United striker Carols Tevez. Tevez is currently on a two-year loan deal at United but is reportedly close to securing a full time deal that will cost them £32million which is a lot to pay for a substitute. Wenger looks ready to try signing Tevez from United for £32million as the Argentinean international has found himself on the bench for most of the season after Dimitar Berbatov's arrival in the summer.
Reports in Spain have today said Real Madrid have signed 20-year-old superstar Sergio "Kun" Aguero. The Argentina international plays for Real Madrid's local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real have reportedly agreed a deal for him to move to The Bernabeau in January. Aguero was strongly linked with a move to Manchester City but Real Madrid look to have beaten them to Aguero just as they did for Portsmouth midfielder Lassana Diarra.
The other fixtures are :
Chelsea v Juventus
Villarreal v Panathinaikos
Sporting Lisbon v Bayern Munich
Atletico Madrid v FC Porto
Lyon v Barcelona
Real Madrid v Liverpool
Arsenal v Roma
Inter Milan v Manchester United
The fixtures are to be played on the 24th/25th of February and the 2nd legs are on the 10th/11th of March.
Arshavin on the other hand is completely different, the Russian play maker is a lot more creative and is better playing just of the lead striker. Arshavin's current club Zenit St Petersburg have said Arshavin has permission to talk to other clubs about a January move. Arshavin said he would love to play for Barcelona, Manchester United or Chelsea so it looks like if Zenit are happy with the offer he could well be on his way.
Karim Benzema has revealed that his dream club are Spanish champions Real Madrid. The French International is one of the highest rated strikers in the world and rightly so. The 20-year-old starlet has stated
"I promised my mother that one day I will play for Real Madrid and I want this to come true."
Arsene Wenger looks like he will spend this January for a change with a purposed bid for Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso. Arsenal haven't been as impressive at the start of this season as they were last year and that could be down to the fact they sold Mathieu Flamini and are now lacking maturity in the midfield area.
Tottenham Hotspur look to re-sign former club captain Robbie Keane. Spurs ready to try a cheeky bid of £5million plus midfielders Aaron Lennon valued at around £10million and Jamie O'Hara valued at £5million.
The Irishman has failed to show any sort of the form he showed when he was at Spurs and this shows with his minutes played and goal stats. Keane has only played the full 90 minutes three times this season and been substituted 15 times he also only has four goals.
Benitez is rumored to make a bid for former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey who is on form so the money for Keane could help with that and Winger Aaron Lennon who is rumored to be offered as part of the deal would do very well in the Liverpool side as they have Dirk kuyt a natural Striker on the right side of midfield this season.
Manchester City are a step closer to signing Valencia's David Villa. Villas agents are flying to England later on in the week to meet City officials. The Valencia goal machine has a contract clause of around £120million but because of finical problems are strongly willing to consider City's offer which will be around £52million.
Manchester United midfielder Anderson has stated he wants to leave the champions for Jose Mourinho's Inter Milan. Anderson signed for United in the 2007 summer transfer window for £15.6million and since then has won the Champions league and Priemiership in his first season.
The Brazilian midfielder has said that the Italian League is the best in the world with the most creative football and he would love to play there when his contract with United expires in four years. He then said that he would like to join Mourinho's side because they are the best team in the Italian League and its his dream to play for them under Mourinho. Sir Alex Ferguson defiantly will not be to pleased with the comments Anderson has made.
Anderson has failed to score a goal for United but I feel he is a player of very high quality and could become one of the best players in the world at Manchester United because he has everything you need in the premiership.
Keane took charge of Sunderland when they were struggling in the Championship back in August 2006 since then he got them promoted and secured Premiership football last season coming 15th which was a good achievement. Keane looked like he was going to do very well this season after spending around £30million bringing in some top class players to challenge for a top half finish. But things didn't go so well for the outspoken manager who's team were not pro forming on the pitch and he was also getting into a few argument's off the pitch.
Niall Quinn has said Keane was brilliant for the club with his winning mentality and would of liked him to stay but had to accept he wanted to leave. Quinn wished Keane the best of look in the future.
Sunderland who of course will be looking to replace Keane as soon as possible maybe have the options of Alan Curbishley and early favourite Sam Allerdyce. As for Roy Keane i feel he did a good job at Sunderland over the two years he spent there and i expect him to be back in football in the future.
Swedish striker Henrik Larsson hasn't ruled out a move abroad. The veteran striker is currently a free agent and has stated that he wont sign for most recent club Helsingborgs even though he likes it there unless things change.
Larsson has bags of experience including a loan spell in the Premiership with Manchester United where he won the League and with Barcalona where he won the Champions League. I think he would be a good replacement for Evertons injured strikers and could make a impact if he was to sign for the club.
Madrid are looking to replace Ruud Van Nistelrooy who is ruled out for the rest of the season with ligament damage. Hunterlaar would be a great replacement for his Dutch college as he has a proven goal scoring record with Ajax and a host of other Dutch clubs as well as a decent International record.
Hunterlaar has come to the attention of some of Europe's best clubs including Manchester United but now looks to be on he way to the Bernabeu to join a host of his International team mates.
I feel Drogba is still one of the best forwards around and will get back into the Chelsea team after he has served his ban even though Nicolas Anelka is on top form and the Premierships top scorer.
