Transfer News and Rumors - Summer 2022

Recommended Posts

Rumors coming in hot and fast.

A second CB (which implies Crespo is not re-signing): https://www.transfermarkt.us/marco-rente/profil/spieler/237244 <-- seems unimpressive

 

Here is the Boto interview, I love how he holds so little back haha

  • "For me, a player with 25, 26, 27 years old is not a young player. He's a player with experience." <-- I love it!
  • "Nasberg, Quagliata, Rafa Soares, we already signed them"
  • wants 7-8 players - LB, CB, wingers, #10, goalkeeper - then if we need another striker, midfielder, #10, we'll go for them.
  • wants 90-95% of the roster ready by June 21
  • reiterates that he wants to create a business model by buying and developing younger players, wants to emulate the Benfica model in PAOK

Would be very ungreek/unpaok to have the roster completed at the start of the season. Like it though. Think our financial position/gains and fame the ECL quarterfinal brought us helped.

(Other) rumors:

Keita Balde (aka the guy) from Cagliari;

Hördur Magnússon from CSKA;

André Franco from Estoril.

You're right. It's easier to be prepared if you have the money to make moves.

Magnusson would be a free, and though he seems "old" for Boto I think that would not be a bad move. Perhaps Ingason will form a strong partnership with his countryman.

 

Here are the three players referenced above:

It also sounds like Taylor and Murg are looking for new teams, and Mihaj is about to be sold. If he's sold then we will be left with only one active defender going into preseason (Ingason). Expect a B team guy to fill out the #s even if Crespo is re-signed.

Crespo has been talking with Apollon Limassol, but the Cypriots are not willing to pay him 600K for two years that he demands.

He might be close to APOEL. Hey man, if you can get paid, get paid.

Our former gk, "superman," may be making a move to Turkey (Alanyaspor and Antalyaspor reported to be courting him). A shame to see him go to a midtable side but I bet they're offering a pretty good wage.

The APOEL rumor might just be another trick by his agent, unless Crespo agreed to lower his demands.

From rumors that I heard PAOK offered Crespo 1-year at close to 350K, but he demanded a 2-year deal.

Another potential target, this time a winger: https://www.transfermarkt.us/khaled-narey/profil/spieler/153664

Good age, don't know anything more about him. Probably would be cheap. Would not be the first time we grabbed a winger from Germany's second tier who was ultra-successful with us (Mak)!

 

For the other players - I still haven't heard anything about the Norwegian CB, but I believe Quagliata is still slated to arrive on Saturday. Savvidis is apparently making his return to Greece soon, which is probably when they'll discuss Balde. That Ricardo guy also is still slated to come and sign, and is expected to join the team in Holland before possibly transferring to the B team. I wonder how many other B team players will join him in the first leg of preseason?

Nasberg is signed. Boto said it himself. The things is that his contract with the Norwegian team ends on August 31. We are trying to negotiate with his current team to release him earlier. Unless that happens, don't expect an official announcement.

Good luck to him. There is no way PAOK could have given him a 2 year contract at 35 years old as he demanded. Looks like we will have a completely new defensive line next season (except for Ingason).

When all the smoke is all about the new stadium during a transfer period, makes me wonder wl this be our 7th dud transfer period in a row? 

Would this be the 4th consecative season where Ivan has shrunken the budget?

You would prefer an unsustainable budget? The transfer period is not over yet. But I hope you're not hoping for another Berbatov. It's easy to appease the most annoying segment of our fan base with a dumb "BAM"
