Dirk Kuyt Linked With Potentially The Greatest Transfer In Modern Football History

Dirk Kuyt Linked With Potentially The Greatest Transfer In Modern Football History

A truly magnificent transfer rumour has made it's way to the back pages this afternoon, as former Liverpool striker and current Feyenoord hero Dirk Kuyt has been linked with the type of transfer you typically would concede isn't going to happen for you when you move back to your home league at the age of 35.

Kuyt has been in stunning form for Feyenoord this season, netting a staggering 10 goals in 10 games, including back to back hat-tricks in his last two, which have thrust his boyhood club into a title race.

And the football world has taken note. Today, Catalan publication sport have claimed that Dirk Kuyt is a January target for FC Barcelona.

Yes, you read that correctly. It seems as though the powers that be at Barca have decided the club wish to replicate the Henrik Larsson transfer of 2004 by bringing in a veteran striker, and Dirk is on the shortlist.

A first review of the market puts forward some names that might fit the profile required along with reasonable economic demands. The quality of Alvaro Negredo, Jonathan Soriano, Dirk Kuyt and Sergio Garcia does not need to be discused. Each of them are at least 30 and have played at a high level, with fairly high performance. SIgning any of these players should not be problematic.

Between football and economics, Barcelona's board will look at the way they might integrate into the dressing room plus the way they can adapt to Lucho's system. The role for the winter signing is specific and they don't want him to create future fiction.


Make. It. Happen.


It sounds crazy, but when you think about it, Barca are a Luis Suarez injury away from a striker crisis. They need someone who will come in, be a good head to have around the changing room, be happy to sit on the bench, and get goals. That's Dirk.

Unfortunately for Barca, there is no chance that Kuyt would leave in the middle of the title race with the club he loves, and judging by his adorable family's reaction to returning to Holland, the Kuyts are happy where they are.

Still, this transfer rumour has brought a fantastic amount of enjoyment in the Balls.ie offices so we felt the need to bring this to our readers attention. Imagine it, Barca are trailing by a goal in the Champions League final, and on comes Dirk Kuyt to offer a different dimension, eventually winning a penalty which he dispatches with consummate ease before tapping home the winner from all of three yards as the game moves into added time.


If only..
