Players in the Transfer Market

Posted by atleti on June 11, 2007


Fifa World Cup Germany 2006 profile:
“Sneijder is a naturally two-footed midfielder who can create goals and also has a nose for scoring them.
The product of the much-praised Ajax youth system had a huge impact on ‘Oranje’ when winning his third cap.”

UEFA Champions League profile:
“Despite his slight stature, Wesley Sneijder is deceptively strong on the ball and his passing range is enhanced by his two-footedness. Plus he has a secret weapon up his sleeve – free-kicks.”

The lad is eager for a move out of Eredivisie and has been strongly linked to Valencia.  It appears, though, that Valencia did not offer what Ajax would consider a ‘reasonable’ offer. Which club will shell out the big bucks for him? Stay tuned! 


Currently playing for Porto as an attacking midfielder, the 23 year old has attracted the attention of English Premiership clubs, Italian clubs, and my beloved Atletico Madrid. He has ruled out a move to Germany, claiming he does not wish to move to a place with a ‘cold climate’.

UEFA Champions League profile:
“A powerful and skilful Portuguese international winger, Ricardo Quaresma was voted the best Liga player in 2005/06 in recognition for some fantastic goals and performances. “

“Quaresma is often compared to fellow Portuguese, Cristiano Ronaldo for the similarities both possess in terms of their speed and dribbling abilities. Quaresma naturally plays as a right winger, due to him being a right-footer, but is also capable of playing as a striker.”

    RICARDO QUARESMA would be ideal. He would add bite and creativity to the midfield.
