HOLY JACOB’S! Cavani & Falcao at the double?

Now there are mouth-watering prospects in football…and there are some positive DROOLERS! This one, however, would be the Niagara Falls of all footballing prospects!

As recently mentioned in my last piece, I don’t believe everything that I read in the press and on-line. Even when I see (more credible?) “quotes” from someone, I still glance at it slightly sideways through squinty eyes and a curled-up corner top lip.

Live long and…hope!

But I would have to be an emotionless Vulcan not to feel a pang of excitement when recent reports suggest that, Monaco rumours aside, Radamel Falcao would prefer a move to City (over Chelsea) and that we have met their ‘buy out clause’ of £54M.

So add that to the fact that Film Producer and Napoli’s Chief Executive, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has been quoted as saying that he very recently instructed his Sporting Director to speak to City to see what can be done to secure a deal to move Edison Cavani from the blue of Napoli to the Blue of Manchester City.


I would have to be a DEAD Vulcan not to be at least a little giddy at that possibility.

Radamel Falcao in for (the already departed) Balotelli and Edison Cavani in for Edin Dzeko? Add Sergio Aguero into that potent mix (he’s going nowhere) and then even IF Carlos Tevez does leave us in the summer; those 3 - plus John Guidetti and a whole host of attacking/creative midfielders - would see me being well able to polish off a full packet of dry crackers in ‘one go’...no problem at all.

Calming down a little, however, I suspect that even with our spending power AND even with (‘financial fair play’ in mind) the probable off-loading of…

Alexander Kolarov
Dedryck Boyata
Kolo Toure
Wayne Bridge
Javi Garcia
Gareth Barry
Scott Sinclair
Edin Dzeko
Carlos Tevez
Roque Santa Cruz
Alex Nimely
Luca Scapuzzi

…in the summer; chances are that we’ll get either Edison OR Radamel rather than both.

Still, even then; I’d probably manage ½ packet of dry crackers in one go (other fine brands of
cream crackers are available in the shops).
