    I know it's not quite the Summer Window, but it still makes high school recruiting rumors seem like child's play.

    And I don't know why I started this thread, maybe to live vicariously through other clubs since Arsenal is more likely to buy another real estate property than a player.

    Oh and links/reposts from Bleacher Report earn a perma ban from the entire internet.

    So fuck it, let's start with the rumors:

    Sneijder likely leaving Inter. Anzhi and Shalke seem to have the most interest in him so far, although a proposed Pastore-Sneijder swap with PSG is being reported by the French media.

    Sell Ince for 250K and buy him back a year and a half later for 6 million. Sounds like another fine piece of business for Liverpool.

    This reminds me of when Chilean would post the daily transfer rumor thread. The halcyon days when Liverpool contended for Champions League spots, Arsenal did not consider the top 4 to be a trophy, and AVB had just learned to read and write.

    Former RSL and KC forward Movsisyan transfers to Spartak Moscow

    Posted on December 8, 2012 by Ives Galarcep
    [​IMG]

    Just two years after leaving Major League Soccer for Europe, forward Yura Movsisyan has made a big-money move to Spartak Moscow.
    Movsisyan is heading to Spartak on a $9.7 million transfer from FC Krasnodar. The transfer is the second-largest ever involving a current or former MLS players. Only Jozy Altidore’s $10 million transfer to Villarreal from the New York Red Bulls was larger.
    Movsisyan moved to Europe after the 2009 MLS season, helping Real Salt Lake win an MLS Cup title before moving to Danish club Randers. A successful stint in Denmark earned him a $3.2 million move to Russian side FC Krasnodar, where he enjoyed two impressive seasons, scoring 23 goals and earning the attention of Spartak Moscow.
    The No. 4 pick in the 2006 MLS Draft by the Kansas City Wizards, Movsisyan spent four years in MLS, scoring 20 goals during that time.
    A native of Azerbaijan, Movsisyan spent a year playing at Pasadena City College, where MLS scouts and discovered him and signed him to a Generation adidas contract. Movsisyan had aspirations of eventually playing for the U.S. Men’s national team, but was unable to secure citizenship before moving to Europe and eventually decided to play for the Armenian national team.
