WITH the transfer deadline fast approaching, the rumours are starting to get strange around here – the latest being that former footballer and professional bench warmer Michael Owen is on his way to AC Milan.
Owen, who has resorted to creating a glossy brochure to send out to suitors in the past in order to secure a transfer, is heading out of Manchester United, with his agent previously hinting a Premier League club would be his destination.
However AC Milan are a striker short with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s move to Paris Saint Germain – and the Red Devils are rumoured to have offered to offload Owen to the Italian club to fill the void.
Now I realise unlikelier transfers have happened in the past, but seriously?
If this happens, I’ll buy myself a smart new Italian hat and post a video of me eating that sucker.
