Spurs buy flying pig from cash-strapped Malaga

SO. Who is Spurs’ new transfer target? Football rumours work a lot like tabloid gossip, inhabiting a shadowy area between utter made-up nonsense and the slimmest morsel of truth. Today, the BBC says:

“Spurs have been linked with a move for Malaga striker Jose Salomon Rondon, 22, who has scored 27 goals in two seasons at the cash-strapped club. Giovani dos Santos could move in the opposite direction.”

That would be thercash-strapped Malaga, owned by the impoverished Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani:

Net worth: Estimated £20bn

Such are the facts.

PS – I’ve spent a few very entertaining evenings watching Malga at their home ground. The fans – featuring a large ex-pat contingent focused on ‘Ken’ and his magnificent flag – are raucous and passionate. If you fancy a team to watch that is on the up, pick Malaga.
