Transfers: Nevermind The Bollercks?

Transfers: Nevermind The Bollercks?



Transfer gossip thrills and spills are no longer confined to international breaks where Manchester City are concerned. Here's the latest VMC in tray clear out...

Rumours have surfaced in the cockier quarters of Laandaarn Taarn that MCFC Academy graduate Michael Johnson is on Harry Redknapp's radar. The lad's much documented long term abdominal injury is well on the mend and Mark Hughes has repeated his belief in the Urmston born 21 year old yet somebody somewhere in the smoke has come up with an imminent £6 million Spurs bid.

Micah Richards is the next City player that the hacks reckon will be on his way. Richard Dunne's Aston Villa the proposed destination despite City skipper Kolo Toure's intention to help the bring the lad on and Micah's blue hearted statement this week:

'To suggest that I want to leave City is absolutely ridiculous. I have three-and-a-half years left on my contract and, when you look at the way this club is going, who in their right mind would want to leave? I am 21 years of age and people seem to forget that I am still learning my trade. I am just enjoying the ride. There is perhaps the impression out there that I am bit older than I am, but I know I am not the finished product.'


We've also seen the popular Pablo Zabaleta earmarked for an exit as the hacks scrabble around for their January transfer scoops early doors and don't get us started on the on fire Martin Petrov. Strangely, nobody is in for Moonchester Benjani.

Amid all this it's perhaps been refreshing to read some clearish blue water with regard to our record transfer signing Robinho. Responding to foaming Spanish hacks as to where Barçelona stood over City's brilliant striker, The Camp Nou's Sporting director Txiki Begiristain said:

'Robinho is an interesting player who we asked about in the summer but City would not talk about a transfer and since then we have not made any move.'

Talk of City's exit door hasn't fully dominated the back pages, however. Bayern Munich's brilliant Franck 'Scarface' Ribery and struggling Liverpool's powerful Fernando Torres names are doing the rounds again.

No smoke without various fires? Give us a shout both here and in the forums!

JB, MJ needs to reproduce his form with City before Harry would even contemplate a £6m approach, but We would be crazy to rid ourselves of our youth if the rules regarding playing own grown players is to come into force. We will need to keep our stars and MJ has shown that he has quality.

I really would love to talk to these *ahem* 'journalists' who come up with this crap - sure occasionally they get it right (I guess it's a case of playing the odds, eventually one will be true), but for the most part it makes me wonder how the hell these people still manage to draw a weekly pay check. The mind boggles.
