According to his agent, Man City striker Jo is hot property. According to everyone else he is rubbish. But even so, this is January so players will be touted around by their agents.
He has offers to go to Russia, Spain and France but which clubs could they be? Having previously played for CSKA Moscow and done enough to warrant a move for 19 million big ones, would they take him back? We can assume Real Madrid and Barcelona will probably have their sights set on bigger names (although Joao Alves de Assis Silva is pretty big), but would La Liga or Ligue 1 benefit the Brazilian hitman, a journeyman it seems already, and at only 23?
City obviously have other agenda’s, namely trying to win the title, qualifying for the Champions League and trying to win the Europa League. Should they sell? They don’t need the money and you never know, a squad player like Jo could come in handy.
Guliano Bertolucci has stated other clubs’ interest, but is this to try and create a bidding war? How much is Jo worth? More to the point, does anyone actually care?
