Well L'Equipe say so, ce doit être vrai. Crazy things happen in the January transfer window remember. Clubs lose all control of their senses. Remember the mighty Real Madrid PAID US to take Faubert on loan two years back and, last January, we signed Mido and McCarthy in a bid to be renamed Fat Club.
But even allowing for January madness, why would any club consider Ilunga? How many games has he played over the last two years? As malingerers go, he is up there with Dyer! And when he has played, he has looked slow and disinterested.
Bloody hell, why would anybody want to sign a left back who has barely kicked a ball this season and who, when he has played, has looked off the pace and, at very best, rank ordinary? Would ANY club be THAT stupid?
O hang on, we've signed Bridge haven't we!
