Please Can I Sell To Manchester City?
How comes Kaka has cost Real Madrid a little over HALF what Man City reputedly offered for him? Kaka claims he has agreed to move to help AC Milan. Some help! I bet Milan would rather have received City's £100m than Real's E67.2m - or has the pound really collapsed that far against the Euro under Gordon Frown?
We thought City had paid over the odds when they bought Bellyache but, by this yardstick, we should have been asking for somewhere between eighteen and twenty million! I know these Arabs have more money than sense sometimes but surely somebody inside the Abu Dhabi Group must be asking a few questions about the way City are being taken for mugs in the transfer market.
Before the abuse starts, I accept that West Ham were almost as stupid under Turds and Eggs; the fees paid were not in the same league but the wages offered to Dyer, Neill and Ljungberg were beyond crazy. But two wrongs don't make a right do they? No matter how much money City's owners have, there will be a finite amount somewhere along the line and the more that City waste now, the less they will have to play with in the future. Paying double the going rate to buy something is not a sensible way to run any business!
