Sorry Mr. Eriksson but it seems that you would get nothing more than cold politeness from Russia and no Love at all. Sky Sports has reported that Manchester City have failed in their bid to seduce the highly rated 23-year Brazilian international striker Vagner Love from CSKA Moocow to the blue half of Manchester after the player publicly turned down the City offer.
Love is quoted by Sport Express as saying:
At the end of last year, there was an offer form Manchester City, but the transfer did not take place because CSKA president Yevgeny Giner did not feel the offer was right for me. I love Russia, I have excellent relations here and I love the club. I am satisfied with everything here. CKSA, in my opinion, is a great club and amongst the continent’s leading teams. I am confident CSKA will just get better and better. If you do go to a new club then you have to make sure your working conditions are better and financially they are no worse.
Looks like Sven-Goran Eriksson has to look elsewhere for a striker. But the January transfer window is shutting down fast so he needs to hurry up.
