And what I mean by that is one must not assume stories out of the Italian tabloid-trattoria have any meat to them. This morning, you may wake to find a few articles such as this claiming Palermo have now agreed a fee + player swap deal with Chievo for Michael Bradley.
I can unequivocally tell you that this is false. The teams are still talking, but there is no transfer deal in place.
On the other hand, I can definitively report that I've now made myself hungry.
