Dabo move off?

Seems that despite both the club and player being keen on each other, the proposed signing of Ousmane Dabo appears dead in the water.

According to Dabo's agent - a certain Willie McKay;

"We are speaking to three clubs apart from City and Bolton, Ousmane is one of the best Bosman signings available in Europe this summer and he has expressed his intention to play in The Premiership.
He did admit he fancied playing at City, but now we are looking at other options and hopefully something will be sorted out in the next couple of weeks or so."

Dabo appeared keen on the club, so could it be solely down to money? Surely the club must have known of his wage demands when he rebuffed the contract offer from Lazio so it is a little strange that negotiations would breakdown over money.

According to McKay he is now set for negotiations with other clubs, yet call me a cynic but I can't help thinking it may be part of a negotiation tactic on the part of Dabo (and McKay) to up the wage offer from the club.

vote it up!

anyone with willy mackay as an agent should be avoided at ALL COST. I bet he was Vuoso's agent when Clueless Kev squandered 3million plus pounds. How much of that did Indepentiente get - my guess is not much.

I agree with your comment on mckay, the man is an out and out rogue,just look at whose on his books and you will see what i mean, Jason Roberts - unsettled,Joey Barton -unsettled,Pascal chimbonda-unsettled, andnow hes trying to flog Henri Camara to his equally rogueish mate Harry rednapp. this unscruplous toe rag should be investigated by fifa , failing that taken out at dawn and shot!!!!
