Most ridiculous football rumour of the day, without doubt, is the Daily Express’s story that Avram Grant wants to buy Kaka from AC Milan, ‘even if it costs him Â£100 million’. The Express’s ‘source’ (some bloke down a pub in Fulham, perhaps?) said: ‘Kaka is certainly a long-term target, and if there is any chance of getting him then Avram will try to make it happen. Avram likes Kaka very much and has told Abramovich he is a good investment, even at Â£100m.’
Ha! What bullpoo. I’m done with the non-stop torrent of sensational ‘Big club may buy big player for big money!!!’ stories. They fill the back pages, but are completely worthless. If Kaka goes to Stamford Bridge any time in the next couple of season, I’ll eat my hat; if he goes for Â£100m, I’ll also eat my coat and shoes.
And anyway, Kaka belongs to Jesus, and Jesus can’t be bought.
