Man City Offer Joleon Lescott A Dream Move

Man City Offer Joleon Lescott A Dream Move


Manchester City are prepared to offer £18 million for Everton's centre-back, Joleon Lescott.

Reports in the Express suggest Everton are bracing themselves for the inevitable, however it is thought the 26-year-old centre-back will have the final say.

Birmingham born Lescott is reportedly on £40,000 a week but with City prepared to double that, many pundits think it's only a matter of time before the 6' 2' tall Wolves youth academy graduate puts pen-to-paper.

An Everton source said...

'We have been told an £18m bid from City is on the way. If that happens, Joleon will be informed. It will then be up to him if he wants to talk to them.'

Joleon, capped six times by England is currently with the national squad preparing for Wednesdays World Cup qualification encounter with Andorra.

Seriously? You think moving down to a team who finished 5 places lower, especially when Arsenal have enquired about him, would be a dream move? OK you'd give him a ridiculous salary, but it's not exactly like he's skint is it. Although almost £20 million for a player with dodgy knee's, who is very, very unlikely to play till he's 30 would be fine with me.

Do you honestly think we'll finish 5 places below you in the new season EvertonMike? As for 'dodgy knees' are you suggesting you'd be happy to see him go?

18m seems an awful lot of money for a good centre half.

For £18 million Derry definatly. You are aware he has to have his knee's drained of built up fluid before every match? There's only so long you can go on with that. He needs an operation but we don't want to do it as we doubt he's knee's would stand up to the rehabilitation. He's a key man for us though, I'd probably value him at about £10 million, but since it's City obviously that figure increases by at least 50%. Do I think you'll finish 5 places below us? Probably not, but I expect we'll be competing for similar places next season, so it's hardly a dream move really. Except for the finance side of course.

Moyes will try to hold onto Lescott according to an article in the Premier League website today. He says all his key players are contracted long term and he has agreed with Chairman Bill Kenwright they would not have to sell players and wanted to grow their squad instead. Here: http://www.premierleague.com/page/Headlines/0,,12306~1687907,00.html --This one looks like it will be a toughie. Money talks but only if people will listen.

Moyes has been told he need not sell any players, thats really reads he needs to sell, if he wants to strengthen the squad, it may come down to a swap deal with Jo, as KTC says £18m is an awful lot for a good rather than a quality CB.
