Tottenham making it rain

Rumour out of Lyon is that Tottenham is going to buy Fred for $18 million. The Brazilian, who supposedly prefers the London club to PSG, would only be the 1,542th new striker brought into the team over the past couple of years.

Ok, thats actually unfair. They only have Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov, Jermaine Defoe, and Darren Bent at striker.

Maybe Juande Ramos is going to go with the mythical 4-1-5 formation that I've heard is popular in Seville.

Seriously, what this probably means is that Spurs are going to turn around and sell Berbatov to Man U in exchange for the GDP of some small country. His price tag is in the $40-$60 million range, which means it would be a nice bit of business for Juande Ramos.

Ironically, giving the Bulgarian to the Mancs would be the most threatening thing that Tottenham has done to the Gunners in the past decade or so.

Fucking wankers.

UPDATE: Apparently the Fred transfer talks are dead. And Spurs are trying to flog Defoe and Bent to Villa and anyone, respectively.

Fuck Ramos for this bullshit. In no way is Fred for Berbatov an even exchange, although obviously it makes Spurs a ton of money. They are just trying to stick it to the Gunners.

Defoe is in talks with Villa. They are also offering bent for 12 to anyone who'll take him.
