I spoke with my boy earlier on, and he told that on the back of todays "SUN", (yes, I know it's The Sun !), but apparently AC3 has now confirmed his decision to leave this summer, citing David Dein as part of the reason. I am assuming that he is still not over the "Chelsea saga", and IMO would put them ahead of R.M. in the race to get him. Personally, I won't be sorry. I think that we can have that slot covered pretty well, and the overinflated price that we should attain, will be well spent elsewhere. Again, let's see if the "grass is always greener" syndrome hits him, as it has don many others !
