The January transfer window is now open and the rumours and speculation will now fly – most of them in the wrong direction.
One transfer which looks likely is that of Lucas Neill from Blackburn as cover across the defence, in particular for Steve Finnan at right back.
The David Villa rumours have been quashed by Rafa Benitez, as has Peter Crouch to Newcastle. Javier Mascherano continues to be linked though, Alonso is allegedly wanted by Athletico Madrid (not that he’ll go).
Whatever happens, theres bounds to be plenty of dodgy websites wanting to mislead you, you can keep up with the latest rumours and reports in the Rumour Mill.
