We all know that we have to take the majority of transfer rumours with the proverbial ‘pinch of salt’, but when one club claims they’ve agreed a deal for a player and the other remains silent, who knows what to believe?
So has Roman Pavlyuchenko been sold or not?
Yesterday, Russian outfit Anzi Makhachkala said that a £13m deal had been agreed for the striker and it was now down to him with regards to personal terms.
The Russian league has some big names in it these days and Anzi are already home to Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos. The move would allow Roman back to his homeland although maybe not to his preferred club.
The next few days will reveal how much truth there is in this story, but many Spurs fans may have hoped that Roman would be last in the queue for the White Hart Lane exit door – certainly as far as strikers are concerned.
