Today's tomfoolery is purple swag
Hugo Rodallega didn't manage to trouble many clubs last season but he has been getting up plenty of noses this summer, apparently, as the Sun tell us that Stoke, Aston Villa and Everton have all pulled out of potential transfers for the Colombian because of his demands for a £70,000 salary. Rodallega scored two goals in the Premier League last season, which is fewer than Robbie Keane who only played a handful of games while on holiday from the MLS, and Joey Barton, who only played a handful of games while on holiday from Twitter. Still, Martin Jol likes the look of Rodallega so could give him a swanky new home in Fulham.
£70,000 per week? Paris Saint-Germain's ludicrously rich owners wouldn't even bother bending down to pick up such a trifling sum, not least because they're too busy trying to break the world record for the number of bids made (and mostly rejected) in a single summer. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Radamel Falcao are the latest superstars to be linked with a move to the French capital, with the fees and wages reportedly on offer containing more digits than a Captain Birdseye factory.
There is no convincing suggestion that Milan would replace the Swede by a striker who has little in common with him other than a ponytail, with Andy Carroll more likely to go to either West Ham, Newcastle or, indeed, the moon. Actually, Fulham have emerged as a possible destination for Carroll, with the Mirror claiming they will make nabbing the striker a condition of Liverpool's signing of Clint Dempsey. So, a Rodallega-Carroll strike force looms at Craven Cottage.
Swansea's Joe Allen, meanwhile, looks set to follow Brendan Rodgers to Anfield but will presumably not be so crass as to request a pay rise because, as the Gylfi Sigurdsson business suggested, Rodgers is far too classy for that sort of carry on. Which is why principled Rodgers still insists on being paid no more than the 25p per week that he earned for the impressively slick paper round he ran in Antrim when he was 11.
José Bosingwa will follow Salomon Kalou to Lille, not because he's got nothing better to do than stalk his former team-mate, but because the French club want him to become a team-mate of his former team-mate.
Brian McDermott hopes that Jermain Defoe has become so fed up he will agree to a move to Reading. Rafael van der Vaart fancies he could do better than that ... but according to the Daily Mail is instead contemplating a move to the Untied Arab Emirates, where there exists a club willing to pay him a salary of Rodallega-esque proportions.
Junior Hoilett's move to Borussia Mönchengladbach appears to have broken down so Newcastle, Tottenham, Fulham and Everton are forming an orderly queue outside the forward's door. West Brom and Aston Villa, meanwhile, are doorstepping Rennes' Malian midfielder Tongo Doumbia. Read More
