- In the cricket club at Burnley away
I'm not saying we'll get him as there will be a big queue of potential suitors but you could smell the agenda in that Bates article a fucking mile off - he stated that the only 3 clubs who may be able to afford Haaland are "Abu-Dhabi owned City", "Real Madrid", and "Qatari-owned PSG"!It's not Raiola propaganda, trust me!
It's United propaganda.
They can't afford him, fear City are in the box seat, so are trying to get their damage limitation in early, whilst also burnishing the narrative no top player would move to City but for ridiculous money.
The author of the £1m per-week wages at the weekend was Steve Bates and that's all you need to know... a United mouthpiece.
Others chancers such as Ornstein then further recycle the same myth the day after.
It's the same shit sandwich served with different bread.
The million pound a week headline wasn't all that either - far from being just his wages, it was a load of other shite added on such as image rights, personal sponsorship deals, etc.
