Upson to Man City
If the rumours are true that Unreal City want Upson, then we should sell. As the sale of Kryten Lescott shows, a club can take City to the cleaners if they are sweet on a player. Upson isn't getting any younger, has a poor track record with injuries, and hasn't been playing too impressively this season anyway. Apparently, we would have accepted £9m back in September, so I reckon we should be able to get £15m if City really want him in January.
Who do we replace him with? Well I can't believe Nani cannot identify a cynical and efficient Italian defender in the £3m to £5m bracket and then there's our old friend Anton supposedly coming back onto the market at a knock down price. That would still leave us £5m or so to invest in a striker. We would also probably be able to cover three players' wages out of what Turds and Egg agreed to pay Matty!
Mind you, that's assuming we are allowed to spend any revenue generated from sales!
