29/05/18 – After a long weekend we are back, firing up the Bullshit measure to check out what the Rumour Mill has churned out over the last few days. Agent Tagga is back on form after a weekend on the lash, and as for us here Daily Ent. Xpress, well we are always on the lash, so lets get into this!!
Manchester United are monitoring Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, 22, as they look to build for the future.Bullshit Factor – 80%
Probability – Grealish loves a night out, and Manchester has more to offer than Aston (so I have heard), smashing sambucas down Canal Street might be the thing that is tempting our Jack!
Agent Taggar: Showed his talent in the Playoff final but can he cut it at Manchester United, I don’t think so. With United now chasing proven players in the attacking areas with Lukaku and Sanchez in last season, it seems the spots for the future have already been taken by Rashford and Martial. Chances of this happening 20%
Juventus could allow striker Gonzalo Higuain leave the club, if they receive a right offer this summer, with Chelsea leading the race for the 30-year-old Argentine. (Calciomercato)Bullshit Factor – 40%
Probability – Higuain do not do it please, Stamford Bridge has become a curse for many a striker, and Higuain is a baller, he has reportedly watched footage of the Incident at the Prince of Wales this weekend and wants in on it!
Agent Taggar: Higuain is now reaching the age where it seems to go downhill. A fresh pair of legs up top for Juventus seems to be a target for them this summer. Chelsea now targeting Sarri a link up between the two who were successful at Napoli could be on the cards. 60% chance happening
Manchester City are ready to compete with Paris St-Germain for 19-year-old Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman was on loan at PSG last season but the Ligue 1 champions may be forced to abort plans to sign him. (Manchester Evening News)Bullshit Factor – 70%
Probability – PSG and FFP! LOL, it is like asking Gurdwara Committees to play by the rules, not happening, Mmmmbop stays as PSG for us.
Agent Taggar: This one is interesting because he would have to sign for a massive fee. Did he perform last season to justify that fee I don’t think so. With only a handful of teams who can afford his fee if PSG are not interested then there are only a handful of teams who can afford a player dubbed the future of football. Man City would be one of them however it could all change if he has a good world cup. 30% chance of this happening.
Manchester City have had a £39m offer rejected for Napoli midfielder Jorginho. The Serie A side want £52m for the 26-year-old Italian and face competition from fellow Premier League side Chelsea. (Mirror)Bullshit Factor – 20%
Probability – City are like that guy on Pay day who spends his money on mad stuff like fire sambucas and vodka eye ball shots, he does not need to do it, but does, then regrets until next time, Man City sign players forget about them then repeat in the next window! Madness
Agent Taggar: It seems center midfielders are on the shopping list this summer with the top Premier League sides. There are only a handful available and with Liverpool snapping up Fabinho and Man United targeting Fred and Milinkovic-Savic that leaves Jorginho to join City surely! 80% chance.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho fears they will be priced out of signing Wales international Gareth Bale, with Real Madrid set to put a £200m price tag on the forward, 28. (Express)Bullshit Factor – 50%
Probability – Gareth Bale is like Katy Perry when she was pimping her last album, lots of time to batter the eyelids, and not cheap, and in the end just failed to hit the right notes, Gareth Bale has as much game time in him as David Haye has rounds left in him.
Agent Taggar: Bit like stocks and shares this one! Before the Champions League Final he was an injury prone gamble at around the 80-100 million pound mark. Now after an outstanding 30 minutes he is 200 million. Common sense approach is needed here he isn’t first choice at Madrid he wants to be but 200 million is to much for someone who will be 29 by the time the next season starts. 50/50 chance if the fee isn’t ludicrous then we could see Bale at Old Trafford.
