Hughes invents shocking new way to waste Sheikh’s money!
Our secret squirrel digs up a transfer exclusive
According to trusted a Spoiler source – someone within the higher echelons of the game who has given us very accurate transfer tips in the past – Manchester City’s next purchase is likely to be David Bentley.
The source says there is a “70 per cent chance” that the deal will go through. (The Spoiler)
Now whilst it’s true that Man City have been spending money like Yogi Bear nabs Picnic Baskets, this would still come as quite a shock. David Bentley’s time at White Hart Lane has probably been even worse than Darren Bent and the former Arsenal man who’s move to Tottenham was seemingly based solely on one fairly decent season at Ewood Park, could well do with a good break but could this be it?
Mark Hughes has a great deal of creativity in the attacking third and one wonders how the hell Bentley would fit into the side that already has Shaun Wright Phillips on the right? Could a move to Eastlands simply see the 24 year old replacing one bench for another, but one imagines the benches at Man City would be very comfortable and probably made of solid gold, also another bonus would come from the fact he would get to sit in the dugout alongside Craig Bellamy, which would probably result in David having to nod repeatedly at anything the mad Welshman said to him for ninety minutes as giving the striker a wrong look could result in the swift rearrangement of one’s face!
