The Rumour Mill: Tottenham winger and Valencia striker on PSG's shopping list

"If I copy Nene's celebration they'll definitely sign me"
Poor old Harry Redknapp.

A couple of months ago his star couldn't have been higher: he was cleared of tax evasion, Spurs were flying high in the Premier League and the England job was his for the taking.

The latter is still true of course, though quite why anyone would want to manage the Three Lions is a mystery to me. Things aren't quite so good at White Hart Lane, with Tottenham now facing a fight to get into the Champions League and having been dumped out of the FA Cup in spectacular fashion on Sunday by Chelsea.

And life could be about to get worse for the droopy-faced former Portsmouth boss, with Paris St-Germain hot on the trail of his star winger, Gareth Bale. Except we're not really hot on his trail, but it made a nice headline for a few websites who have been running the story this week.

"Bale is the type of player PSG need," Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett told TF1 show Telefoot. "But he is very happy at Tottenham."

So there you go, agent in talking up his own player shock. Around €60million would be needed to prise the Welsh Nene out of Redknapp's grubby hands.

TF1 must have had a good snoop around in the Parc-des-Princes bins this week, because they've got hold of Carlo Ancelotti's shopping list. Along with milk, brioche and bin-bags, the boss is hoping to purchase a Roberto Soldado. Not sure if he'll be able to get one of those from Monoprix.

Valencia striker Soldado has become one of La Liga's hottest properties in the last couple of years, and could be set to follow the likes of David Villa, David Silva and Juan Mata out of the door at the Mestalla due to Los Che's never-ending financial strife. No potential fees have been talked about, but no doubt it will be around a squillion Euros.
