Juan transfer they should pass on?

If you thought Manchester City’s secret ambitions was to emulate all the successes of rivals Manchester United, you were wrong. They want to copy their failures as well!

That is why Roberto Mancini is lining up a £7m move for ex-United player Juan Sebastian Veron. The 34-year-old arrived at Old Trafford for £28m in 2001. After a disappointing spell he moved to Chelsea where he set the world alight if we remember correctly.

Nonetheless, Veron is said to be mulling over a move from Argentinian outfit Estudiantes, which would see him pocket £130,000-a-week. But in the last few minutes he seems to have distanced himself from the move.

He said: “I can’t leave, I’d be going against my convictions. I’d be letting myself and the fans down above all else. It’s not possible at the moment and it’s not a question of money. My family and my affections are involved.”

As if to neatly illustrate the logic behind the potential transfer, City have posted net losses of £92.6 million, up from £32.6 million in 2008.
