According to the whispers that have even made their way to the BBC site, the move for James Milner. to Manchester City, which everyone expected to be completed yesterday, has hit a snag.
Apparently Stephen Ireland. wants a £2m pay off from Manchester City. Can't say I blame him, I'll have the same if they would be so kind.
The deal is apparently £18m + Ireland. That is a £30million deal for us as Ireland was valued around £12m. Sounds like a great deal to me that. What say you?
Again, our club showing - like Arsenal and Spurs before us - that we aren't dummies, we won't be bullied but we will buy at the right price and sell at the right price. Great business practice that?
'City have no intentions of backing down in the face of Ireland's demands,' said BBC Radio 5 live correspondent Pat Murphy. 'They feel that too many clubs are trying to take advantage of their vast riches and that £2m is a ridiculous sum to dispense with a player who didn't feature much last season and is not in Roberto Mancini's future plans. City also believe that Ireland is simply not entitled to £2m to leave. If no compromise can be reached then the Milner deal is shelved for the time being.'
So, maybe Milner will be in our team for tomorrow instead? Hope so. Part of the reason, as I understand it, some players wanted out was due to the unrest in the dressing room, maybe that now being 'resolved' will be a positive thing for all involved?
The Express say JAMES MILNER is expected to complete his £26million move to Manchester City within 24 hours.
