Unlikely Football Transfers That Could Benefit Both Teams

Updated on June 19, 2013

Gareth Bale

To Manchester United for: Wayne Rooney, Nani and 20 million pounds

I am almost 100% certain that this transfer will not happen, but really, is it a bad transfer? Rooney wants out of united, Nani is out of favour and the twenty million gives Spurs some more money to spend. Man United in return get possibly the best young player in the World

Rooney is one of the best footballers on the planet and Spurs are in desperate need of a goalscorer. Rooney has proven that he can score in the Premier League and there isn't as much of a risk of him being a flop as their is with other big name players.

Nani has shown that he has the potential to be one of the best wingers in the world. His consistency is one of the things that has held him back and not being a regular first 11 player hasn't helped. Nani would be a direct replacement for Bale

With Bale almost certainly going to leave Spurs this summer. I think that unless they get 80 million from Real Madrid, Spurs should go for a deal of this kind and land two great players as well as some money


Karim Benzema

To Juventus for 15 million and Stephan Lichtsteiner

This is a very farfetched transfer but it would benefit both teams. Madrid already have Higuain, Callejon, Jesse Rodriguez, Ronaldo and possibly Gareth Bale in their squad. They will have one of the best groups of attacking players in the world, with or without benzema.

Madrid desperately need a right-back. Arbeloa is the weak-link in arguably the best team in the world. Lichtsteiner is one of the best right backs in the world and he would be a perfect fit on the Real Madrid team.

Juventus on the other hand need a right midfielder. Lichsteiner has played there for the past year as Juventus play with 3 centre backs. The move for Benzema means that giovinco could play on the wing and benzema would slot in up front beside Vucinic or Quagiarella


Sam Byram

To Manchester City: 15 million

Sam Byram is one of Englands best young defenders. He is definitely going to be one of Englands best right-backs in the future.

Byram is valued at 10 million and Man City, Arsenal and Everton are looking to sign him. Leeds are trying to hold onto their best young talent but i think that they will sell him for 15 million. Man City are the most likely team to pay this money for a player as young as Byram

Byram would be a risk for Man City but if he reaches his full potential, it will be a great signing. If the 15 million is put into transfer funds, Brian McDermott could use it to buy a team capable of gaining promotion to the Premier League


James McCarthy

To Liverpool: 20 million

McCarthy was Wigan's best player last season and he is only 22 years old. He has also been one of the Republic of Ireland's best players in this years international matches. McCarthy has shown that he can be effective at both club and international level.

Liverpool would be taking a huge risk in signing McCarthy but in my opinion, he is better that nearly every other young midfielder liverpool have (Coutinho is better than McCarthy) and I think that he could be a potential replacement for Stephen Gerrard

If the 20 million was put into transfer funds then I think that wigan will be hugely favoured to return to the Premier League next season


Robert Lewandowski

to Man City: 15 million and Dzeko

Lewandowski is one of the most wanted players in the world right now. He scored 4 goals against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final and he scored 36 goals in all competitions last season.

The only reason that I think Dortmund should sell Lewandowski is that he doesn't want to be there, he wants to go to Bayern Munich when his contact expires next year. This transfer means that they get money for him instead of potentially losing him for nothing

If Lewandowski goes to Man City, I think that he will become one of the best goal-scorers in the Premier League. I also think that getting Dzeko means that Dortmund have a replacement for him straight away

Which of these transfers do you think would work the best for both teams

      I want to see Ronaldo to United and Bale to Real. It works out great for United and Real but sucks for Spurs. But I want Ronaldo back at United.
