So here we are, another day of football gossip to spread! A blogger’s work is never done, is it? That said, its a hell of a lot easier than some other jobs I’ve had. I remember when I hosted the Oscars, but anyway…
Here’s a real peach from the Daily Mirror! Apparently the agent of Napoli’s Christian Maggio, Signor Massimo Briaschi, has been flapping his gums about the winger’s potential move to the Premiership with Tottenham being the most likely destination. The Mirror quoted Briaschi; ‘We are waiting for a sign from the club. We said we’d meet again with the directors, then nothing else came of it. We are here waiting.’ Perhaps it’s just not going to happen Massimo. Or maybe offers will be like buses…you wait a lifetime for one and then two come along at once!
29 year old Maggio has scored 3 times this season, in 28 appearances for Napoli. He’s also an Italian international, with 9 caps to his name. The whole thing just doesn’t seem right to me. Personally I can’t see Tottenham being interested in any 29 year old midfielder when they’ve got such a talented midfield already. Unless they’re very unlucky, and lose some key players over the summer, it’s unlikely they’ll have to go anywhere near Maggio.
Sorry Massimo, I think you’ll be waiting a little longer for any offers from Tottenham, but if Christian is serious about a move to the Premiership then maybe you should look at some other clubs.
