pure rumour regarding KakáBy: j | January 13th, 2009
This should come to no surprise to anyone familiar with the Daily Express‘ habit of sensationalism, so please take this information as pure rumour. However the rag is reporting that ex-Nike man and now Man City Chief executive Gary Cook along with chief operating officer Paul Aldridge have traveled to Milan in an effort to lure Kaká to the Citizens with a salary of up to £200k per week. While I warrant it is an intriguing story and I naturally would welcome the Brazilian maestro to City not only for his brilliant play but for the type of man he is, the article fails to mention how business relationships between A.C, Kaká and Adidas would counteract such efforts. It would be a stunning achievement for this to occur and one that would shake the underbelly of the closed-door business aspect of Football for this to occur. While I suppose impossible is nothing, I very much doubt this deal will occur.
