De Rossi to Man City

Soon there shall be a mass exodus of African players from the Premier League. Not because of all the racism but because of the African Cup of Nations. Most teams will just plug the gaps with shit fringe players but not Manchester City, they will just go out and buy Daniele de Rossi.

Ya Ya Toure/Toure Ya Ya/ Ya Toure Ya will be off with his fat brother to play for the Ivory Coast leaving a gaping hole to fill in midfield. I shall resist the urge to make a crude joke. De Rossi has been at Roma for his entire career but for the first time in his career Roma are really, really shit. This could be enough to convince him to bugger off and perhaps win a trophy and bag a few million pounds.

According to the Sun, the deal will only go through if City can sell rodent eating Carlos Tevez. They are currently paying Tevez about ten times the average UK salary a week to fund his golfing trips to Argentina. Tevez could be off to either Inter or AC Milan but I think the rule is you have to play for both at some stage so it doesn't really matter.

Mancini said de Rossi is a "champion and perfect for Manchester City." Well that's that settled then. I suppose they will be looking for a replacement for Kolo Toure as well. Perhaps John Parkin can be converted to play at centre-back, he should fit the shirt. 

That could actually be Guy Garvey from Elbow.
