He was steadily rising on the back of the Man U rumours.
I log in today to see him plummet like a stone.
All I can find is a report in the Express which is using a crappy local Berlusconi owned Milan free daily newspaper as its source that states the Croatian could be off to AC Milan instead. I've checked out the paper and now that story has disappeared, or at least I can't find it.
This is the same paper that only yesterday said Inter Milan would need to pay €11.5m for Mandzukic and the same paper that stated a few days ago that Mandzukic had agreed terms with Man U... and for that story they are using the Express as the source!
Google translation of that story... "Mario Mandzukic has found an economic agreement with Manchester United and now only the OK from Juventus is needed to unlock the deal that will materialize in the case in January"
If you look around, il Giornale is ranked as one of the least trustworthy publications in Italy, with just a ranking of 5.65 out of 10. Whether that independent report about brand trust is trustworthy itself is perhaps a different matter.
I guess the point is to not trust a single, seemingly unreliable source and do your own research.
Whilst typing this, a new article has just been published by The Metro (yes, yet another local free paper I know) with the headline...
"Max Allegri approves pursuit of ‘special’ Man Utd transfer target Mario Mandzukic"
Maybe I'll just top up on him now he's down to 63p
edit: oh and another one...
@dean73 how much u got in mandzukic then?
@CLACKETT enough to go from a healthy profit in the past week or so to this:
@dean73 shit considering how it's been, u might get lucky.🤞
@CLACKETT Hopefully, it's turned as the stories coming out this evening are positive for a Man U move...
Glad I topped up, back up to 76p and all is good in this World again :)
