Top 5 players in the transfer market this week – Neymar tops the list
Demba Ba is unhappy with his stay in St. James’ Park. Earlier last week, the Senegal international handed in a contract renewal request to Newcastle United, but it was dismissed.
An official statement from Newcastle United declared that the club was not in position to hand a new contract to Demba Ba and if the situation grew worse they would not hesitate in handing him over to another club.
Reportedly, Demba Ba’s £7 million buy-out clause expired in July 2012, which means rivaling clubs can steal away Newcastle United’s top goal scorer this season.
Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have lined up as serious contenders for Demba Ba. Rumor has it Liverpool has already put an offer on the table.
3 – Fernando Llorente
Keeping Fernando Llorente at Athletic Bilbao was not an easy task, which is why the Spanish club will be feeling rather down after a series of unfortunate incidents related to the young Spain international.
Fernando Llorente has been in bust ups with his manager Marco Bielsa and a couple of teammates. Athletic Bilbao are without a clue of how to put an end to this saga, which means they might be inclined towards end Fernando Llorente’s stay in Spain.
Top notch clubs like Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan were interested in signing Fernando Llorente last summer. Fernando Llorente’s contract with Athletic Bilbao ends in the summer of 2013, which means he will be available at a very reasonable price.
