Hello.

This might be something. It might be nothing. You have to have a heightened sense of suspicion during International break, however this comes from the Fatherland and not Fleet Street.

Michel Bastos is the name in the frame and the German edition of 4-4-2.com is suggesting that a bid of €10m could be on the cards come January.

Again another biwingal winger – although he does favour the left. He’s 29 and has been at since 2009. I did a small amount of Googling and I’m not sure about the money side of this. It was reported only last year through a few English newspapers and the figure being touted then was of €22m.

Add to this, the knicker twisting of the Lyon chairman over the Hugo deal and we really could be in for some protracted fun and games.

Will this happen? In a word, dunno. What I do know is that this type of player would be a brilliant addition to shore up having moved into a more central role.
