Buy Buy Football

‘THE Express says that Real Madrid’s golden boy, Raul, has fallen out with the club’s president, Florentino Perez. So bad is the row that Raul is now on the transfer list.

Off to the Bridge

The Spanish club are desperate to rid themselves of the man who is said to be upset by the arrival of David Beckham.

For this reason they are offering to sell the striker for the giveaway fee of £70m.

It’s the kind of story that is only of interest because it allows the Express to mention Roman Abramovich, the new Chelsea owner.

That job done, the Mail says that Arsenal are ready to fall apart and crumble to so much dust.

Patrick Vieira, the club’s captain, has set a deadline of one month for the club to agree to his wage demands.

The French midfielder wants £100,000 a week or he’ll walk away.

And if he does leave, the Mirror says Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager will also go, the fans will revolt, the earth will be stained a rich shade of red and there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the land of Highbury.

To avoid meltdown, poor Arsenal could be forced, as the Mail supposes, to sell their prized asset for a derisory £50m to Chelsea.

But the Gunners had best be quick, because the paper says that the Blues are on course to buy Inter Milan’s Christian Vieri for £25m.

The Blues will then swoop for a host of other players whose names are too big to fit on the screen and become the best team in the world – ever!

And the only person who can stop them taking over the sports pages is you know whom. We never thought we’d say it, but bring back David Beckham – all is forgiven.
