WHILE TODAY’S TRANSFER talk has been dominated by Cesc Fabregas, a certain Irish international winger’s move may be set to rival that of the Spaniard’s in terms of cost.
Having been in terrific form during his first season for Spartak Moscow, Alan Marshall of the Daily Record reports that Zenit St Petersburg will purchase Aiden McGeady for a sum believed to be in the region of €30million.
The player, who is fighting for his place in the Irish team with Liam Lawrence, only moved to Spartak from Celtic a year ago.
Prior to the proposed move, McGeady expressed frustration at his side’s inconsistency, saying:
“One game we play very well then the next game we will draw or lose it. It doesn’t make me feel optimistic for the season.”
However, the player may find himself under enormous pressure if he does make the move, given the fierce rivalry that exists between the two clubs.
