Three snippets from the foreign press to explain if not excuse, the near complete and utter lack of success in the transfer market by Barter & Droppit Enfield Ltd t/a THFC.
“I feel sorry for Adebayor because he has no chance at City, has no chance of playing here this season. So it is important that you can find a good solution,”
The above from Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini who was talking to a.bola.pt about the impasse on the Emmanual Adebayor fiasco. A.bola say that the actual transfer fee agreed between City and Spurs was €7M, but Ade then decided he wanted to up his wage demand.
“It is not true that there is an agreement with Liverpool. The only concrete offer was made by Tottenham, which proposed 16 million euros for the player.
The transfer did not materialize because they offered a very low salary. It may be that re-express interest if Modric exit. Inter are also interested but not able to match bids from Premier League clubs, “
The above from Oscar Betancourt speaking to Calciomercatoweb.it
And finally we’ve apparently made a bid for Yan M’Vila, which of course will also be pointless if we can’t match the boy’s Mickey Mouse wage demands… from lequipe.fr…
Yann M’Vila Rennes hopes to sell by the end of the transfer window.
Things seem to be accelerating in recent hours. Monday morning, 10 o’clock, the Breton leaders have received an offer of 15 million euros for their midfielder.
