Luca Toni is Barcelona’s ‘new Larsson’ for January transfer window (Spanish April’s Fool’s Day?)
It’s December 28, Dia de los Inocentes, or the Spanish April’s Fools Day!
So the Spanish press are going to town on the spoof news, inventing the most fanciful transfer stories imaginable, even by the Spanish press’ fantastical standards.
The biggest spoof story doing the rounds is Verona’s veteran striker Luca Toni to Barcelona, as the ‘new Larsson’, i.e., the old greybeard striker to bring in as a supersub and act as a role model for the youth.
As ever it’s hoodwinked quite a few, but probably not Luca Toni himself…
