Last night while I was sitting in the Queen’s Theatre in the West End, watching Les Miserables a bit of a storm broke out among the Canary nation after a story published by HITC Sport
Obviously I didn’t see the news until after the performance, which was extraordinary by the way, but the crux was that City had accepted an offer from Reading for Nelson Oliveira.
‘Every player has a price’ etc, but selling Nelson? That’s unthinkable, isn’t it?
Having cost us £5m and shown his worth last season, any bid would surely have to be at least £10m, if say.
Anyway, the EDP’s Michael Bailey quickly tweeted this:
‘No they haven’t, I believe. Doesn’t sound like it would be a goer either. So you can sleep easy tonight. #ncfc’
It immediately seems like a bizarre sale and fingers crossed it looks just like silly season in full flow. Hopefully there will be more on this later to negate the story.
