Well, that's what this Sky Sports report says. Unfortunately, that Sky Sports report is incredibly lazy and lacking in details. They publish a much lower volume of absolute nonsense than, say, the Daily Fail or the S*n, but this is still embarrassingly low on details. They really couldn't get Harry saying that he rates Lass? Lass saying that he wants to move to the Premier League? Someone from Real Madrid saying that he'll only leave if a team meets their valuation? Any quote from anyone?
Seriously, you guys don't want to know what I'd be willing to do to get an Adam Schefter of English football. All of this rumor and ITK stuff seriously drives me up the wall.
Oh, speaking of ITK! There's an ITK rumor circulating today about Wilson Palacios making a move to Stoke. Someone snapped a picture of a Mercedes outside of the Britannia Stadium and said it belonged to Wilson. Probably a load of nonsense.
But, pretending this is all true: If we can sell Palacios for, say, £7m and pick up Lass for, say, £10m, I'd be a pretty happy man.
