LIVERPOOL, Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal made today’s transfer headlines – with the Reds aiming to spend big.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Liverpool want to match the spending power of Spurs.
He said: “Tottenham have spent £100m to try and get in the top four. It will take another few windows to get that quality in the group.”
Meanwhile, a Man United striker could be set to get his career back on track at Doncaster Rovers.
Reports today suggest that youngster Federico Macheda is on his way out of Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old burst onto the scene five years ago, but his career has stalled since, and the Doncaster Free Press suggest he is on the verge of sealing a loan move to Rovers.
Meanwhile, Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is willing to let striker Emmanuel Adebayor, 29, go out on loan - to save him from playing with the reserves.
QPR are tipped as being the most likely destination for the Togo striker in the Daily Mirror.
