Ok we need a left back, but £35k a week for a Romanian left back who has been plying his trade in the Ukraine? What a joke! And it gets worse. The guy is 31 for pity's sake, and we are reportedly offering him a three year contract. Madness.
I suppose the absence of a transfer fee makes the deal a little less crazy but I currently live in Romania and, believe you me, you need to look every gift horse in the mouth before you agree to include it in your beef lasagna.
And it's not as if the club have happy memories of Romanian players is it? Roland Rat is probably planning his shopping trips to Harrods even as we speak!
Hang on, sourcing a dodgy old Romanian nag? Dodgy lasagna? We must be planning for Tottenham!
