Are Sevilla having a laugh ? I know they’re naffed off about Ramos moving to Spurs but this is ridiculous :
"Tottenham will have to cough up £60m if they want to sign Seville pair Daniel Alves and Freddie Kanoute."
This is a quote from both the Daily Star and The Times, and is on the Beeb’s gossip page today, paper talk I know but it’s still interesting.
Freddie’s goal return for Sevilla is 27 in 64 appearances (wikipedia), better than his return for us admittedly over a similar period of time, but I would say he’s worth no more than £10m in today’s market. Are Sevilla seriously suggesting then that Alves is worth £50m ? Or is this just their way of trying to hold us to ransom ?
And do we really want Kanoute back anyway ? Your thoughts on this would be welcome.
And this made me chuckle (from The Sun) :
"Former Leeds chairman Peter Ridsdale has revealed that Jonathan Woodgate provided him with one of his biggest laughs at Elland Road. Apparently, the defender once left his passport at home on a European trip because Ridsdale told him to keep it somewhere 'safe'."
What a muppet.
