Are we over the relative disappointment of Yoann Gourcuff’s signing for a Ligue 1 club instead of an EPL one? Not really, but we’re mildly comforted by the news that Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has signed the delicious Raul Meireles from Porto for the princely sum of £10.7 million.
We had budgeted something closer to £20 million for player purchases, but unfortunately we had a big weekend planned and the Kickette transfer fund is somewhat depleted.
We have got a few pence left though, and since we missed out on getting Roque Santa Cruz, we’re thinking of bidding for Benny Feilhaber. A change of position may be required; we quite fancy him ‘standing naked in the corner of the Kickette office’.
Meanwhile, everyone’s favourite denim wrangler and all-round Are You Kidding Us With This Body striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has continued his campaign to play for every single top class club in the universe (well, Italy at least) by signing a loan deal with AC Milan. During his tenure he intends to score twenty five goals and win the Ballon D’or.
Perhaps you might want to concentrate on sorting your jeans out first, Zlats? Kiss, kiss.
