Blackpool Put $19 Million Price Tag on Charlie Adam: Roundup

Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Blackpool’s Million-Pound Bet

Blackpool has put a 12 million pound ($19 million) price tag on its skipper Charlie Adam, jeopardizing his move to Liverpool, the Daily Mirror reported.

Adam was bought for 500,000 pounds two years ago. Liverpool’s new manager, Kenny Dalglish, had been considering an offer in the range of 5 million pounds, the paper said.

Ajax’ Pay Day

Ajax player Luis Suarez will ask the Amsterdam club to lower its 30 million pound asking price so he can join Liverpool, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Ajax has suggested to Damien Comolli, Liverpool’s director of football strategy, that the 12.7 million pound bid that is currently on the table for the Uruguay player is not “respectful.”

Kaka Out

Real Madrid playmaker Kaka has been left out of the Brazil team for an international exhibition match next month against France, the Independent reported. Kaka, 28, returned to Madrid this month after a seven-month layoff during which he had knee surgery.

Hammers Jinx

West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold won’t go to the club’s Carling Cup semifinal at Birmingham because they’re afraid of jinxing the Hammers, the Daily Mail said.

The east London club is winning 2-1 after the first leg, with the winner facing Arsenal at Wembley in the final.
