Here’s a new take on an old spin.“The only way I would leave Milan would be if Milan want to sell me.”The words of one Ricardo Kaka just 72 hours ago over speculation that Chelsea will make an offer that neither he or Milan can refuse.Rewind two years almost to the day and it’s more or less the very same line.“The only way a player will leave Milan is if he wants to be sold.”The words of Adriano Galliani over reports that a certain London club were ready to make Milan an offer for Andriy Shevchenko they couldn’t refuse.Back then the Rossoneri chief was covering himself for the inevitable and thus transferring all the culpability to the Ukrainian striker who probably still rues the day his missus forced him to go and live in England so the kids could learn the language.

Argie Bargy recently braved a freezing Buenos Aires evening - is it always four degrees colder on a football terrace? - to watch the national side take on Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier; the sold out River Plate stadium shaking with the excitement of 50,000 gregarious Argentines awaiting the return of the nation's favourite sons.
