Transfer Rumors and Realities: Don't Aim Too High, Shorty!

Manchester City may be backed with hundreds of billions but they maintain a reputation of a "shorty" club.

City are interested in every footballer with obviously no obvious category. Any alive footballer would do.

The blue and insane part of Manchester is making Abramovich's golden days of stupid, blind-spending seem like careful transfer decisions of a studied view and final plan.

Club "Shorty" is aiming a little bit too high with a list that has made City owner's sad dollar bills blush. City's list stretches from Gianluigi Buffon, Kaka, the Valencia Davids, Silva and Villa, and Cristiano Ronaldo to Michael Owen and even some retired "gems."

Club "Shorty" aimed for Kaka who snubbed them. So the newly-crowned "great" club for being the richest football club in the world signed Craig "Shorty" Bellamy (suits him, doesn't he?) and Nigel de Jong instead.

In other news, Arsenal are reportedly closer than ever to clinch a deal for Zenit's Andrei Arshavin for £15m which is to be installed.

Meanwhile, Blackburn are ready to offer £1.5m for Egypian club ENPPI's Ahmed Al-Mohammadi according to The Mirror.   

And while Sam Allardyce aims to rebuild his Blackburn team, Big Sam's ex-club, Bolton, is aiming higher than club "shorty" itself!

Bolton are reportedly after Sporting Lisbon's Miguel Veloso and are ready to splash £12m on the Portuguese midfielder.

Veloso is a target of both United and their local rival, club "Shorty."

Nobody can finish an offensive maneuver in football like the Egyptians! Just ask Steve Bruce.

The Wigan manager is so happy with Amr Zaki's displays that he has signed Zaki's compatriot, Mido.  Mido, sick of warming the benches at Middlesbrough, has moved to Wigan on loan until the end of the season.

Juventus want a long-term replacement for Pavel Nedved and have found that the best way to replace the blond hard-worker is by signing another blond hard-worker.

Some silly and stupid rumors, to say the least that is, have linked Juventus to a sensational £20m-plus deal for Liverpool's Dirk Kuyt.

Speaking of blond hard-workers, Jimmy Bullard has officially moved to Hull City.

Until next time,
