In a week where talk of the next Tottenham manager is set to dominate, it’s hard to weed out anything interesting from the small selection of transfer rumours but there are a number of stories linking us to current and former England internationals.
Gareth Barry, James Milner and Ben Foster are all mentioned today in various parts of the media but is a move for any of these players likely and would you want any of them to happen?
A move for a goalkeeper could be on the cards this summer: Brad Friedel celebrates his 43rd birthday today while rumours persist that Hugo Lloris could return to France having missed out on Champions League football.
Milner is apparently unhappy at his lack of opportunity at the Etihad and although he featured in 26 of Manchester City’s 38 league games, many of those were as a substitute.
Barry is the interesting link and this is a man who has been mentioned as a possible Spurs player since his Brighton days. He is 33 now but was the choice of many Everton fans as their player of the season. Barry is now back at City to face an uncertain future and while Roberto Martinez will undoubtedly be keen to line up a permanent deal, it’s claimed that Tottenham will move in to hijack it.
Would you like to see Barry, Foster or Milner line up as a Spurs player in the next campaign?
