30/05/18 – The storms have gone, Agent Taggar is sober, and Scotland lost to Peru, all seems normal again, but hang on! Are we featuring our first 100% bullshit rated transfer rumour? I think we are you know!!
United and Chelsea are interested in Barcelona’s Spanish 29-year-old left-back Jordi Alba.Bullshit Factor – 100%
Probability – I wonder if on Jordi Alba’s bucket list it actually says “Live In London Before 30” as that is the only reason he would join Chelsea
Agent Taggar: Why would he want to leave Barcelona? For the fish and chips! Instead of fresh cod or haddock this is definitely a red herring!! 0% of this happening
Inter Milan’s Argentine centre forward Mauro Icardi, 25, to Chelsea . (Corriere dello Sport via Metro)Bullshit Factor – 50%
Probability – Imagine Conte sitting on his patio rolling a phat one, whilst others are working out if he is sacked, and if he is? Who is signing players? Conte is blazing shit up, and Icardi, if he does come, welcome to the scrap yard for strikers.
Agent Taggar: Is now the time for a big transfer, I think so. Icardi would be a great addition to any squad. Like I have previously mentioned Chelsea need a striker and they want the worlds best. Icardi in the Premier League would be good to see. 50% BS
Real Madrid are favourites to beat Arsenal to the signature of Atletico Madrid’s Uruguayan defender Jose Gimenez, and are set to active his £53m release clause. (Talksport)Bullshit Factor – 40%
Probability – Arsenal or Real Madrid? Stay in same house in Madrid or move to North London ? We know Gimenez is into the Drill scene, so that might be the deciding factor, though he is more East London vibes, not north according to his playlist
Agent Taggar: Would be a tough one to take for Atletico Madrid. If it is true about his release clause and it is matched can anyone say no to Real Madrid, I don’t think so. The agent will tell any club willing to meet the clause if the player will join so if a bid goes in he will be gone. 60% chance
Newcastle United are close to signing Juventus midfielder Stefano Sturaro.Bullshit Factor – 30%
Probability – From Turin to the Toon? Stefano must be nut’s, but rumors of Gazza turning up at Juve’s training camp with 4 bottles of Peroni and a Garlic infused chicken pizza, might just have something to them.
Agent Taggar: A proven player at a top level he is a player that provides value in this transfer market. Would be available around the 10 million mark which would also bring a lot of interest. Can the Magpies hold off interest from Spain and Italy is left to be seen. 70% chance
Gareth Bale back to Spurs Who have a buy back optionBullshit Factor – 75%
Probability – Bale going to Spurs would be like the time Ravanelli joined Middlesbrough, the dressing room would go to pot, and I mean pot!
Agent Taggar: Bale is the third highest paid player in world football. Spurs have a new stadium to pay for which if Bale joins will take longer. This is why, Bale joins on high wages then Kane, Alli, Erikson, Lloris and a few others will want a bigger piece of the pie! Would be very surprised if Spurs can afford him! 25% of this happening.
