100 million dollar man (at least!)

Surely it can't be true: Kaka playing in Manchester (and not in red). With the initial ridicule at the audacity of the bid fading, it now seems that a bid has been made and Kaka may even consider the move. Kaka rates as one of the top 5 players in the world and for me is second behind Messi. The thought of him playing in the premiership is excellent and my intrigue as to his potential fantasy impact is off the charts.
True, City have been up and down this year but they have still managed to supply the 4th best striker (Robinho) and 6th best midfielder (Ireland). Kaka will surely make a new big four (joining Ronaldo, Lampard and Gerrard as elite midfield assets. Where his price will fall will dictate for me how quickly I pick him up should he make the move to Eastlands. Anything around 9 - 10m makes him an instant buy. At 11m I would probably advise holding off to see how quickly he can adapt to the league. Although, with Chelsea in a bit of a slump and Ronaldo still not firing on all cylinders, I would consider moving Lampard or Ronaldo on if Kaka looks to hit the ground running.

What do you guys think? Will you be on the Kaka bandwagon should be join? Are any other transfers exciting you?

You can double that, mate. $196 million offered (that's onehundredandninetysix million), Milan crack, and Kaka has permission to talk to City. Unbelievable.

But yeah, his fantasy relevance depends entirely on what he'd cost. Although I doubt that he'll leave Milan...

I can't see him leaving Milan. I think Italy is a better fit for him, plus why would he want to play on a second-rate team with no hopes of the CL?

Fulham-Blackburn has been been rearranged for March 11 which will probably give Fulham a double week in week 28 though this isn't yet confirmed in the game. Fulham players are a buy and I will do a quick run through of the team tomorrow to see who the best bargains are.
