Transfer Balls: According to the Metro, Paris St Germain have accepted Arsenal’s £45m for Edinson Cavani.

George Bellshaw declares:

Paris St Germain have accepted a £45million transfer offer from Arsenal for Edinson Cavani…

The Uruguayan now becomes Arsenal’s most expensive player. But hold on. After three declarations that the deal has been done the Metro notes:

The Parisian giants have accepted a £43m bid up front with £2m in add-ons, according to the Daily Star.

Who is this source who claims to be based at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, London, and represent agent Jorge Mendes’s Gestifute? On that company’s website, we learn:

We represent several of the world’s top coaches and footballers, providing them with a meticulous, thorough and professional service.

You represent them by tweeting speculation?

Mendes is not what you call humble. You can read the story of his life in Jorge Mendes, Special Agent.

And he communicates transfer rumours via twitter. Well, so says say the Star and the Metro.

Such are the facts.
