Fulham - Smalling - How Much?
Yesterday we ran a plethora of articles relating to the ever-breaking and ever-changing news regarding the possible, nay probable transfer of Chris Smalling to either Manchester United or Arsenal.
Quotes in the tabloids this morning, attributed to Roy Hodgson, suggest the player is bound for Old Trafford, when he remarks,
"The club has accepted an offer from Manchester United and as far as I know that`s where he`s going."
But, yesterday the price quoted was in the region of £8 million, today some papers are implying that the deal is more like £12 million, if so, no wonder a deal has been done.
All that money for a player who has now started a mere 2 Premier League games - the world has gone mad especially when you consider the financial plight some clubs are now finding themselves in!
