You know these stories really make me laugh and sometimes I think there is some kind of unwritten agreement between newspapers, and agents to fill up inches on quiet news days. First they'll plant a rumor of a pending move, and then they get to print another story with the player committing his full heart and soul to the club. Then of course a month or two later the whole cycle is repeated again.
Mind you the original rumor was surely strongly sourced. I mean because Suarez’s agent is Pep’s brother it’s obvious he is off to Bavaria. I mean who does your brother work for, and I suppose it won’t be long before you get a job there too.
Btw, what is going on with Rafa? Was it a real rant (again?) or the press hyping a story about something we already knew before? Chelsea fans hate Rafa. Rafa is an interim manager, Rafa therefore has limited authority at the club, and unless a miracle happens Chelsea will yet again have a new coach next season. I'm not sure if those statements have changed materially since October.
