Rumors and Realities: Is There a Santa Clause?

It is Rumor & Realities' favorite time of the year with 10 days to go until Christmas!

However, R-R recalls a sad incident. It was a shock to say the least, to know that there is no real version of Santa Claus.

It was just Fat Sam from the mall, dressed up in a Santa outfit who was being really nice to the kids.

The presents were all paid for. It is a bitter truth of life, but there are no fat men who live to give everyone presents for free.

The same amount of shock was produced in the City of Manchester when the filthy-rich owners knew of that there is no Santa clause.

No, this article is not entirely about the fat Santa who resides in the North Pole. There is another Santa. A real one.

He goes by the name of Roque Santa Cruz, and as every other footballer, he is being linked with a move to Manchester City who are keen to activate the Paraguayan striker's £18 million release clause.

However, Blackburn Rovers were quick to react by denying that Santa Cruz's contract includes a release clause worth £18m. So City have to pay an extra 10 million? They don't seem to be suffering from the credit crunch crisis. Let them pay!

Harry Redknapp has said England winger Aaron Lennon is going nowhere, despite reported interest from Real Madrid.

The Spurs manager also said he will not "dive in and pay silly money for players." In other words, Redknapp won't be applying his market genius that brought him success at Portsmouth. City are ready to pay the silly money.

Ex-Sunderland manager Roy Keane is taking time off from football to rest a little bit. The Irish football legend insists he will be back in a managerial role before too long.

Keane, who was once linked to the Old Trafford job, spent £60 million on players in two seasons and suddenly quit when the club was in the relegation zone. Good luck finding a new club, Keano.

Joe Kinnear has claimed that Michael Owen will be offered a new contract by Newcastle but believes that he faces a battle to keep the England striker.

The Newcastle boss fears Owen will put off agreeing to the new contract knowing that Aston Villa, Man City, and Spurs are all after his signature.
