Luka Modric is a cunt. I admit I want to see him in Chelsea, but I'm fed up with players who think it's their right not honor their contract. He wants to leave, okay I'm fine with that, but he shouldn't blast Levy for not selling him when only last summer he signed a six year contract.

Even if there was a "gentleman's agreement" to let him go if a big club comes in. You signed a contract, you abide by it. He's acting like he's being victimized. Cunt. I hope Spurs don't sell.

I don't think it's math.

What does math have to do with the fact that "manutd fan" does, in fact, not support City?

Unless he was referring to Utd with the nickname Man Shitty. Then in that case he's just really good with nicknames.

Carlos Tevez's advisor Kia Joorabchian claims a deal to take the Manchester City captain back to Corinthians is "close" and that the player is helping drive the deal.

Quote:
The Brazilian club have tabled a 40 million offer after being alerted by Tevez's admission earlier this month that he wished to leave City for the sake of his family.

A move to a club in Europe had appeared the Argentina international's most likely route out of Manchester until it was confirmed last night that Corinthians were attempting to resign a player who played for them between January 2005 and August 2006.

"Corinthians made the offer, now it depends only on Manchester City. City have to make a decision," Joorabchian told www.espn.com.br.

"Everybody is working to make this happen, me, Corinthians, Tevez and Adrian Ruocco (another of Tevez's representatives).

"It is impossible to determine the situation, but I think it's close."
