The Bundesliga Rumor Mill

500px Attraction transfer icon.svg The Bundesliga Rumor Mill

Here is this week’s round up of transfer rumors.

Of course the big news has been about Klinsmann’s replacement. Wenger is probably off the table after Rummenigge’s pleasant comments about the Arsenal manager, but the list of manager’s linked is fairly absurd: Jol, Ancelotti, Van Gaal, Hiddink, Gerets, Hitzfeld, Veh, Mancini, Schuster, Sven and Scolari. Wow! More interesting is the other managerial news: Schalke look set to give Felix Magath the same role he has at Wolfsburg and will meet his salary demands which are €5 million per season.

However there have been actual transfer rumors as well this week.

Werder
Diego looking more and more likely to head to Juventus, with the Turin side having talked with Diego and Werder and Juventus being only €6 million off in valuation.

Bayern
Leyton Orient are the only team in the world that have not been linked to the French playmaker. Much of this is predicated on the possibility of Bayern missing out on the Champions League again. I for one, think he will be off in the summer either way.

Hamburg
Alex Silva wants to leave Hamburg because he’s been asked to play out of position occasionally.

Bayer 04
Leverkusen have signed hot prospect Lars Bender from 1860. The midfielder will stay on loan next season with the Munich side before joining Bayer in 2011.

Koln
Keeper Faryd Mondragon will be replaced by Karlsruhe’s Markus Miller, as the 39 year old Columbian wants a two year deal.

Wolfsburg
Grafite is a possible target of Zenit. Even VW can’t compete with Gasprom.

Borussia Dortmund
Alexandre Frie may leave for Tottenham (the Ghetto kid could be used as a make-way) and be replaced by Colo-Colo’s Lucas Barrios.
