Latest transfers

Only three days to go to the transfer deadline, and it looks like being another busy end to the transfer season. The biggest news in the last few days was that Guardiola finally persuaded Laporta to splash out €25 million for Chygrynskiy, and that Real Madrid recovered some of their massive outlay by selling Robben and Sneijder. Will Ribéry be on his way to join the "New Galacticos"? All will be made clear in a couple of days time. (29.08.09)
