Tottenham target Italian keeper and defender, Robinho’s Chelsea deal halted
The latest transfer rumours, gossip and damned lies…
If Harry Redknapp gets his way, the Materazzi/ Mourinho ballroom dancing team will be a thing of the past…
Marco Materazzi to Tottenham
If someone has a pulse and can kick a football, chances are ‘Arry has put a bid on them. The latest to receive the honour is Inter Milan centre-back Materazzi, who has eighteen months left on his contract at the San Siro.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Spurs are also linked with Nicolas Burdisso, Patrick Vieira and Mario Balotelli – wouldn’t it just be easier for Mr Redknapp to manage Internazionale?
Carlo Cudicini to Tottenham
The Daily Mail claim the under-used 35-year-old Chelsea keeper has moved across London to White Hart Lane for £1m.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Spurs could really do with a good keeper, although this transfer “exclusive” isn’t reported anywhere except the Mail. And, er, here.
Robinho not going to Chelsea
Despite being in regular contact with Big Phil since his move to England, disgruntled City star Robinho will not be moving to the Bridge any time soon. According to The Guardian, Chelsea only have the £12m from the Wayne Bridge sale to play with, not enough for a Brazilian man-o’-sex. Unless Manchester City’s attitude to selling is as financially counter intuitive as their attitude to buying…
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: We get the feeling Robinho will play at Eastlands for at least another season.
Mido and Marlon King switch-a-roo
Following his dressing room lovers’ tiff at the Emirates, Marlon King is said to be on his way to Teeside, with Mido heading in t’other direction.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Is this the best way to get out of trouble, Middlesbrough fans?
