2010/2011 Winter transfers/rumors

It's started already:

Although he still has a contract until mid-2012, Stijn Schaars feels it's better for him to leave AZ this winter, or possibly next summer. The midfielder is looking forward to an adventure abroad.

"I have my ambitions," Schaars told NuSport. "My contract runs until 2012. It is not my intention to extend that again, because AZ's wages have been lowered and I'm an expensive guy for the club. It's better that I leave soon and the club gets a good fee for me."

A winter transfer is a definite option for Schaars: "If there's something interesting this winter, then I'm open to them. Otherwise there will be something happen in the summer. Then I think first of a transfer abroad, because in the Netherlands Ajax and PSV are only interesting for me."
And I would like someone to show up at my doorstep and give me a 1966 Ford Mustang. But that ain't happenin' either.

You want him to replace Afellay? Sounds more like an Engelaar replacement to me.

Its hard to find a player like Afellay. Very few around that are that skillful and are good all rounders. Even if there is then we probably couldnt afford them

Engelaar plays solely as a DM at PSV and if we have Schaars next to him then we will have two solid player defensively in CM and both have the technical ability as well. Of course we would have to rely more on our wingers/Ola then but hey its very hard to replace a player like Afellay, especially in the Ere.

I really like Wuytens at PSV but he has hardly got a go. Honestly i would rather not miss out on Schaars though ... even if it is for 5 million. The memories of his form when they won the championship keep me hopeful :hopeful:

But as you said it wont be a direct replacement. Our midfield will look like a more van bommel-de Jong combination than an Busquets-Xabi Alonso one then

Schaars is a lousy defender, always lets his man run free.

All our average players happened to play the best season of their lives and they all imploded shortly after.

Mino Raiola, Jonathas agent, talking up a move to Napoli. Already?

Napoli don't have any cash, can't see how they would buy him at this point.

I dont pay much attention to Serie A so i wouldnt know if they had money or not. Just telling you what i read.

He isnt a proven player though and AZ seems like a much better option than Napoli atm anyway.

I would think so but then Dembélé moved to lowly Fulham. Footballers don't think like us normal people
