Blanc-ety Blanc

So Maybe he is coming now. Allegedly flying in for a medical after agreeing a deal worth �2m a year, Laurent seems to have signed a one year deal with the only problem now being Inter. Massimo Moratti, Inter president, has apparently asked for a fee from United as Blanc has three years left on his contract with the Italian club - one can only assume United have paid up.

Liverpool have also replaced the clown price of goalkeeping with Polish 'keeper Jerzy Dudek. The Feyenoord stopper has waived a payoff from the Rotterdam club to hurry through the move, his agent Jan De Zeeuw had this to say...

"Jerzy has made a big sacrifice of around �300,000 to make sure it goes through. That shows his desire to become a Liverpool player."

I wonder if it is as strong as his desire to join Arsenal was? Will the foreign office issue Dudek with a work permit before Friday? They seem to mess clubs about most other times of the year so there should be no reason for a change of heart now. Houllier thinks the addition of Dudek will make them 'potential Champions League winners' - hmmm, I have to disagree there Gerard. There's a surprise in store fo him at least.

It's not unlikely Pep Guardiola will join the reds before Friday, Champions League football and an understrength midfield make Liverpool an understandable choice for the ex-Barca player.
