    According to Mystery on SC.

    How accurate is this guy normally? IF he is right then this would be good news, unless he is the next Postiga.

    Hope its true which means gomes may be off also we probably will get an experienced striker which leaves us with defoe keane pav crouch leandro and one more... Keane and atleast 1 more must be off

    As much as I like reading itk, when they say that such and such has signed I usually take it with a pinch of salt.

    As for leandro, I think it's the type of signing that the club should be going for. We can't attract the biggest names so getting the best up and coming talent seems the logical way to go as long as we give them the opportunity to develop. I do wonder how much (if true) this signing is down to Harry as I does seem to break his transfer history with us.

    Let's hope it is true and he ends up being the goal machine that we have been crying out for!

    the only problem with this is if levy has gone over harry for a transfer will the lad get a game. we all no harry is a stubborn man and wants his choice players on.. seems he licks fergusons ass though so spose seeing hernandez develop might get him some game time.

    I think Internacional have rejected our bid for him. And even though they're supposed to be our 'b*tch' when it comes to transfers, I can't blame them. He's a goal machine :p

    If we listened to every ITK and took all of their stories with a pinch of salt, we'd die of dehydration!

    He only showed up last window so I wouldnt say he has a great reputation nor a poor one.

    Only played for about 10 mins and wasnt involved much. Brazil were down to 10 men so he was left to be isolated up top on his own, more or less not much to judge him on.

    Pretty likely if the recent news is accurate. I'd imagine we'd up our initial bid (like we supposedly have done) and wrap this thing up before the Copa America starts, because if he has a successful tournament it could lead to more clubs being involved and his price going up.

    What is SC? I keep seeing this, can anyone help me out. Thanks and if this is true then I think that is a nice piece of business by Levy. He can bargain.

    Agree. Plus the system they were playing today didn't involve the striker much. Even Fred looked pretty isolated, although Fred was much lazier than Daimiao was when he came on.

    One of the big ticks in this guys box is his work rate, I have been watching a few of his performances and he works his arse off closing people down, reminds me of Ian Rush, if he is half as good as he was we'll have ourselves a bargain.
