Transfer Talk

Transfer news: Fabregas to Real Madrid shocker!

Real Madrid? Really? Hmmmmm….


Anyone who has sat patiently through The Godfather will attest to the fact that sometimes in life things can plod along to the point of self-harm, then suddenly burst into life and take you on a magnificent journey.

You just need to sit it out, and wait for that metaphorical moment when Michael Corleone shoots a man in the head.

All of which leads rather clumsily to the transfer window, which has so far been completely rubbish, but now appears on the verge of slapping everyone upside the head.

Thanks to hard-hitting sports journalists from the likes of The Daily Mail, The Sun, Marca, The Guardian and others, here’s what we have uncovered today:

In the most “surely not!” of rumours, there have been whispers of Cesc Fabregas heading off to Real Madrid in return for Gonzalo Higuain – a striker rumoured to very much tighten the Wenger pantalons. This would, of course, provide a massive punch in the pants for Barcelona. But could Wenger really do it? A hunch suggests not.

In loan news, Espanyol are going to have a crack at kidnapping Roque Santa Cruz from his rather flaccid Man City experience. Whilst Bologna are keen to take Federico Macheda from the other side of Manchester in a short term deal.

Plus, Kenwyne Jones is likely to leave Sunderland and head in the direction of Birmingham, Tottenham, or beautiful Stoke. On a permanent basis.

    Come on…Fabregas for Higuain?

    Not to say the argentine lad is bad…but this is the little boy’s equivalent of “I’ll trade you all of your candy for a kick in the nuts”

    It’d make a bit more sense if it were “Fabregas for Higuain plus 20 million pounds”…and a “Figo and Judas are my posse” shirt…Cesc’s gonna need it were he to really switch to RM

    I donno … Do Real really stand a chance of getting Cesc, considering he’s Catalan, and previous to Arsenal, he was at Barca’s youth academy.

    More pure shite from a 100% shite site! this “rumour” comes straight out of the Real bullshit Madrid front office who have a concerted campaign going to harass,mind-fuck and otherwise upset Fabregas and Arsenal in the vain hope that they can steal him from Barca’ equally malicious and machiavellian perfidity. this won’t ever happen for 5 very powerful and unarguable reasons:

    1) Fabregas will never choose RM over Barca
    2) Wenger would never let him go half way through a winning campaign
    3) Cesc has clearly committed himself to Arsenal
    4) If he were to ever be available, it would be for around the same price as KaKa and Ronaldo combined plus Higuain and Casias. Of course RM would gladly pay that…
    5) He’s really happy at Arsenal and is a great admirer of Wenger. Going to RM would mean he’s leaving a great club that is stable, for a highly unstable club whose player policies are ridiculously fickle.

    Stop writing shite and stick to the realm of the possible!!!
