Djibril Cisse to return to the Premier League
Today’s gossip, rumours and damned lies…
The transfer market today may be quieter than the Joey Barton fan mail hot line, but that hasn’t stopped some of the UK’s finest print journalists doing their thang. Let’s kick off today’s speculation with news of everybody’s favourite badly-coiffed Frenchman…
Djibril Cisse to Manchester City or West Ham
Without even factoring wages into the equation, Liverpool made an £8 million loss on Cisse, for which they splashed out over £600,000 for every league goal he scored. Marseille have given the clubs ten days to bid for the player, time which would be better spent running as far away as possible.
The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Cisse has made no secret of the fact he would like to return
The Frank Lampard saga latest
Remember how we all applauded Chelsea for applying logic and refusing to cave in to Lampard’s demands for a five-year contract? Well it appears that whoever is making the decisions at Stamford Bridge has changed their mind and a five-year deal is now on the table.
The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Seems like he will stay now. Ronaldo and Barry could learn from Lampard’s handling of the issue
Andy Johnson to Fulham
The Everton striker and occasional England right-winger is definitely on his way out after he wasn’t used in the mammoth pre-season friendly against Preston. Roy Hodgson is waving around £10 million in a desperate attempt to save AJ from further humiliation.
The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Johnson deserves regular first-team football
Aiden McGeady to Newcastle
It’s hard to know whether the idiots are The Sun for making it up or if King Kev actually believed that this transfer could happen. The Irish winger signed a new five-year contract SIX days ago and stated: “There was never any chance of me leaving and going to England this summer.”
The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Not a chance
