Worst Transfer Rumours In Football

We often get excited by transfer speculation, but half the time that’s all it is – speculation. However, the rumours we are talking about are simply ridiculous. Remember when Lionel Messi was moving to Manchester United?

The Fan Park crew brings you the five of the worst transfer rumours in football at the moment.

Harry Kane

From: Tottenham Hotspur

To: Real Madrid

The young English striker has hit brilliant form this season, but the rumours of a move to Los Blancos seem a bit ridiculous. He’ll have to score a lot more goals in consecutive seasons to earn that move.

Brendan Rodgers

From: Liverpool

To: Barcelona

After there were talks suggesting that Barca’s manager, Luis Enrique, was set to be on his way out, the Irishman was linked with the tough task at the Spanish giants. Perhaps he lacked credentials, or perhaps it was a horribly made-up lie.  

Jordan Henderson

From: Liverpool

To: Barcelona

The England international was linked with the move to Barcelona recently, but it would be hard to picture Henderson in the Catalan club’s midfield. We’ll put this one down as one of the worst ever transfer rumours.

Cristiano Ronaldo

From: Real Madrid

To: Chelsea

The Portuguese star was linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in 2013, and how false this rumour turned out to be. Surely if he was returning to England at any stage of his career, it would be to Manchester United.

Lionel Messi

From: Barcelona

To: Manchester United

Unfortunately, all we can do with this rumour is laugh it off. We doubt Messi would ever leave Barcelona, and if he did, it is unlikely it would be to Louis Van Gaal’s struggling Red Devils.

Can you name any other ridiculous transfer rumours you’ve heard?
