Sandro Rosell: “Fab is not so fab, so lets fob you off”
Cesc Fabregas has been downgraded by his boyhood club. He should come cheaper as per Sandro Rosell after ‘wear and tear’. A football Moody’s rating if you must. By the way where did that Capello Index go?
This really should be seen as an insult more so as Barca announced on the same day their serious interest in landing Alexis Sanchez, the Udinese striker who will cost them a pretty packet. He’s also being pursued by City and Man Utd which should skyrocket the price. The Catalunyans are also interested in landing Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal.
By now this is familiar theatre. Barca foams in their mouth about their seriousness landing Fabregas but from the other corner actively pursue other high priced players. David Villa. Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Dmytro Chygrynskiy.
Meanwhile away from the officialese – Xavi, Puyol, and Pique put on a spectacle of a landed homecoming for Fabregas replete with bells, horns, and trollops. They don a Barca jersey on him and fluff his hair. It’s a bit like Rudy Giuliani putting on a darned good show of support for the NYPD after every case of brutality but not budging an inch on their salaries.
Barca can’t have it both ways. But then according to Jose Mourinho they have powerful friends in UEFA which means we still live in a flat earth, geocentric universe.
