It looks like City wanted to show their importance ahead of their cup final. Sadly, they only managed to ridicule themselves again… The massive club tried to attract Real Madrid captain Raul to play in a stadium that’s never full…

‘When they told me of City’s offer I didn’t have a single moment’s doubt.’ was Raul’s all too predictable answer, to which his agent added:

‘Yes, it’s true that there has been interest and nothing more.

‘When I told Raul about the offer he told me he didn’t want to waste time on this matter.’


First it was Berbatov who indicated to City that he’d rather play for a genuinely big club. In January Kaka opted to stay at an aging and mediocre AC Milan rather than joining Citeh… and now Raul laughed them off, Raul whose team have been recently savaged 6-2 at home in their biggest game of the season…

And to think they seriously believed in signing Ronaldo!
