Silly Money...

I enjoy football (soccer for our New World cousins) but even I think that some of the wages being paid to footballers is silly.

If the below happens then it's truly a world gone mad...

-----------

Manchester City have opened talks with Italian side AC Milan over the transfer of their Brazilian playmaker Kaka.

A City delegation have met with their Milan counterparts and reportedly made a bid in the region of £100m, with a weekly wage of £500,000 for the player.

-----------

Half a milliion pounds a week!!!!

That's ignoring the £100m price tag to start with.

Right, well I'm off to do some chores before considering the 1pm screening of Slumdog Millionaire for this afternoons entertainment.

Bye!
