Eastlands boss Mark Hughes is launching a move of earth-shaking consequences. According to the Guardian, the Welshman wants to partner Chelsea defender Tal Ben Haim with Man City’s very own Dunny Monster.
There is no doubt that with Micah Richards, Richard Dunne, and Tal Ben Haim to choose from, the Welshman would have an extremely physically imposing defence, but would it be a flat-footed gang of ogres with Ben Haim at the helm?
Manchester City hope to end Tal Ben-Haim’s short and unsuccessful spell at Chelsea after instigating formal talks to make him their second signing of the summer.
Ben-Haim is keen to leave Stamford Bridge only 13 months after signing a four-year contract and the Israeli international is one of the players whom Chelsea’s new manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari, is willing to sell as he seeks to trim down the club’s first-team squad. (Guardian)
Does a Dunny Monster, Micah Richards, Ben Haim triumverate bring a smile to City fans’ faces?
