Lescott to “plead” for Man City move, Spurs favourites to land Real Madrid striker
The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies
Alvaro Negredo to Tottenham
Four days ago, Spanish paper AS claimed Spurs would wrap up a £23m deal for the Real Madrid striker within 48 hours. Evidently, that didn’t happen, but the Spaniards insist Spurs are still the frontrunners for his signature and the Premier League is his ideal destination.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Little has been said of this deal in the British press, but that doesn’t mean to say it isn’t true. That said, most Tottenham transfer rumours are untrue.
Joleon Lescott to Manchester City
The rumour that refuses to go away rages on. The Times believe the defender will “plead” with David Moyes to be allowed to talk with Manchester City, who had a £15m offer rejected on Friday. They will reportedly retort with an improved £18m bid.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: The Times say Lescott wants to join City to improve his chances of making the England starting line-up at the World Cup. The Spoiler has thought of a better way of ensuring this: STAY AT EVERTON!
Elano to somewhere else
Having been told there was no seat on the plane for him on Manchester City’s pre-season jolly to South Africa, the unwanted Brazilian has been linked to either Cologne or Inter Milan. Real Zaragoza are also in with a shout, according to The Independent.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: It’s clear there’s no room for Elano at Eastlands, and he has been linked to Italy since January.
