Tubby Braziilan puts a huge dent in Manchester City’s pride
This morning’s rumours, gossip and damned lies
In a crushing blow for fans of overweight Brazilians, it is being reported on the AC Milan website that a deal has been agreed to bring Ronaldinho to the San Siro this coming season. Just to rub it in, it’s thought that Milan aren’t even offering Barca as much cash, and Ronny’s agent brother claimed he had negotiated a £25m deal with Citeh just yesterday. Still, it could all be a blessing in disguise – the podgy one, pictured above with AC Milan bigwig Adriano Galliani, would have undoubtedly capsized the trawler on the way to the Faroe Islands tomorrow…

Dave Kitson to Stoke
The Potters are ready to break their transfer record by offering £4.5 million for Kitson, who hopes to enjoy another season of not giving two sh*ts about the FA Cup, instead concentrating on a relegation battle that they will end up losing.
