Baros probably signs if Fred stays

Baros probably signs if Fred stays

It has been confirmed by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas that either Milan Baros or Fred will leave the club by the end of the month - but not both.

Fred appeared as though he would be staying with Lyon after all, but maybe this will not be the case: 'It is established between Fred and Baros that one of them will leave the club before the end of the January transfer window.

'But I cannot say which one as we are still receiving offers for both of them'.

So if Fred stays Milan Baros goes - and probably here - on the face of it? As I had previously suggested with a comment I made, this is what could have been 'the complicated issue' that Baros' agent spoke of?

Another possibility - although unlikely could be that we might try a fresh approach for Fred... this would not appear likely as he never seemed at all interested in our offer. We did have a £9m offer accepted but he never acknowledged us at all.

Worse case scenario will see us miss out all together - then we will be back to square one with time running out, so all being well this will be sorted out by the weekend, the end of it at the latest...

I wish we had the finances at Blackburn that you lads fortunately have, gonna be a good race for the Euro Spots, good luck with signing Fred, he is amazing, i dont think you should splash the cash on Baros though

its not fred that we look like signing - we had offered £9m and seen it accepted - but the target now is baros... i think... it will be a very interesting race for the european places tho mate, you are spot on with that.

Getting the right pieces is one thing, getting them to fit is another. That fine line will decide the uefa places. We actually need Chelski to beat the Spuds in the league cup, as that will give another place to who finishes 6th.

We never had an offer accepted. We spread a runour that e were offering 9 mill for Fred to see if Spurs would buy him and let Defoe go. It was going to plan until Fred's wage demands were above what Spurs were prepared to pay. Now Defoe is going nowhere. We can't pay what Spurs offered so he won't come here. So he is likely to stay where he is. Which means?????

funny you should say that ausoccer as ive written an article - that i am undecided about publishing - with it being my theory that we have already made an approach... however my theory being that we want to use him on the right and wenger wants him used as an out and out striker.

sorry frattonaussie, but i disagree... i do think that we bid and had an offer of £9m accepted, as i do think that if the quality is right we do have the funds - obviously 'arry thought his quality was right but he didnt want to know... im a 'defoist' and as much as i have wanted defoe i would probably have to say that fred is better, altho we couldnt say for sure he would settle in this country could we?

ausoccer, further to my walcott thought - see above - as this has also been mentioned in the forum i decided to publish my article in there, but with vital bolton doing something on walcott now i might not publish, well not for a while - if at all - but to see my ramblings on my 'walcott theory' click here...
