Apparently we are planning a "serious bid" for Tevez over the next few days. That's interesting but it does make you wonder what that says about our original enquiry doesn't it? Did Sullivan ring up and say, "Did you hear the one about the Italian, the Argentinian and a stadium full of Germans? Gizzus your Argie, and I'll send you a dildo by return of post."
If we are getting serious, how does the deal differ from the one originally proposed? Are we going to offer to pay his wages in full? It's a mad idea but no where near as mad as paying Wayne Bridge £97,000 a week to fanny around at left back!
The prospect of seeing Tevez playing (when he feels like it) in Claret and Blue is mouth watering but do any of us believe it will really happen? Sullivan and Gold would become gods if they pulled it off and it would be a delicious poke in the eye of all those who laugh at the way we ballsed up the original signing. And do you know, I reckon there's a 50% chance it will happen. Mancini has to ship him out and where else can he go between now and January?
