The Rumour Mill v Bullshit Factor? Is Diwali Really Impacting Mahrez Transfer?


Date: 22/05/18 and the rumour mill shows no signs of slowing down as we gather momentum for the World Cup, and why should it, the sun is out and muck spreading is happening in fields up and down the land, so why not spread some bullshit over transfers to? Here are today’s top 5 transfer rumour picks:

Man Utd interested in Willian
Manchester United are interested in Chelsea’s Brazilian midfielder Willian, 29, this summer. (Sky Sports)

Bullshit Factor – 60%
Probability – We disagree with Agent Tagger here, the only Brazilian we see at Utd this summer will be to help ease the chafing around Mourhino’s ball sack!
Agent Taggar: Every close season this rumour makes an appearance! However this time around it is pretty obvious Willian is not happy at Chelsea and Jose has hinted a brazilian could join the squad this summer. Could it be Willian? This story has more legs this transfer window than any other! Chances of this  this happening? 60%

Mahrez to City
Manchester City are poised to sign Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez, 27, after missing out on the Algeria international in the January transfer window. (Manchester Evening News)

Bullshit Factor – 70%
Probability – Mahrez’s is married to an Indian, so that makes us think that this will not happen,  what people are deeming to be agents fee’s, are in-fact his wife’s families demands not to move to Manchester as Diwali is shit in Manchester.
Agent Tagger: The whole saga in January regarding Mahrez to City you would think this is a done deal! Think we are all bored of this one!!!!  Chances of this happening? 80%

Chelsea 100m for Lewandowski
Chelsea have made Bayern Munich and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski, 29, their top summer transfer target. (Telegraph)

Bullshit Factor 40%
Probability – No matter who is the next Chelsea manager this is a deal that works for both parties, especially Bayern as they look to a more youthful starting eleven, and trust me Robert will love the pay day!
Agent Taggar: This story has gathered pace through the last few days. With Morata looking like he wants out Chelsea will need to get it right in the forward area this time and Lewandowski could be the man for them! Chances of this happening 50%

Daley Blind to Barcelona
Barcelona are set to entice Manchester United’s Daley Blind to the Nou Camp, as he has his heart set on playing more attractive football (Various)

Bullshit Factor 60%
Probability – Blind is far to good to be left out of the Utd squad, but does that make him good enough for Barcelona? Financially makes sense for Barca, but they can and will attract better.
Agent Taggar: Daley has been unfortunate to be frozen out at Man Utd he is a talented player and can play multiple positions. We have seen over the years at Barca they like ball players at the back even dropping Mascherano back there. Blind fits this description and it wouldn’t be an expensive one for Barca. 60%

Martial to Spurs
Manchester United’s France international forward Anthony Martial, 22, is a target for Premier League rivals Tottenham. (London Evening Standard)

Bullshit Factor 90%
Probability – Do Spurs have any money? When did Mourhino last sell to a rival? Would Martial take a pay cut? someone has been smoking some seriously strong weed here.
Agent Taggar: The only way I see this deal being done is if Kane goes the other way! Apart from that this is a story made up by a few blokes having beer and a mixed grill! Chances of this happening 0%
