December 06, 2012

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable Internet links.

Spurs Spree?

Tottenham Hotspur may make a 24 million-pound ($39 million) offer for Porto player Joao Moutinho, the Daily Mirror reported.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas, who managed Porto before taking charge at Chelsea, watched the 26-year-old Moutinho play earlier this week in their 2-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Honda Swoop?

Moscow CSKA player Keisuke Honda may join Liverpool in a 12 million-pound move in January, the Daily Star reported.

The Japan international, whose contract runs out after this season, has recently been criticized by his coach for his performance on the pitch.

Fellaini to Russia?

Everton player Marouane Fellaini is wanted by Russian side Zenit St Petersburg, the Sun reported. Chelsea and Manchester City are also interested in the player.

Newest Galaxy?

Kaka, who joined Real Madrid three years ago from AC Milan for 56 million pounds, may move to Los Angeles Galaxy after failing to secure a spot in the first team, the Sun reported.

The 30-year-old, who has struggled with a long-term knee injury, has started one league game this season.

The Galaxy may be interested in Kaka following the departure of David Beckham, the paper said.

Mona Mario

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is “as valuable as the Mona Lisa,” the Guardian said, citing his agent Mino Raiola.

Speculation had mounted the Italian may be moving back to his home country after AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi confirmed his interest. Balotelli has started in only one of City’s last eight games.
