In last week's Sunday tabloids, Burnley FC were reported to be interested in bringing Middlesbrough winger, Adam Johnson to Turf Moor and the Sunday People also suggested we may have offered £2 million for the player.
The 21-year old England Under 21 International will be out of contract in 12 months time and could be looking to play in the top flight after the relegation of Middlesbrough to the Championship last season.
How amusing today to hear therefore that Burnley, in the top flight for the first time since 1976 could now be competing with Real Madrid to sign the player!
Well there you go, Ronaldo from Man U to Real Madrid? Baa that's nowt compared to 'ickle old Burnley fighting it out with the high and mighty La Liga Spanish club!
The Sunday People today report that Adam Johnson is in shock after being linked with Real Madrid. He thought his mates were winding him up until he saw it for himself on TV.
He is quoted in the Sunday People saying
'I'm obviously honoured to have been linked with a team like Real Madrid. Even to just be linked with them is unbelievable for me.I had a lot of the lads giving me phone calls telling me I was going to Real Madrid and I was like 'You're winding me up' The transfer window isn't even open yet, though, so I'm just getting on with England and trying to show what I can do.'
Johnson is currently preparing to play for England against Germany in the final of the European Under-21 Championship tomorrow.
Come on Adam why would you want to sit on a bench in the bloody hot sun for Real Madrid all next season, when you can come to the cooler climate (Cough!) of Turf Moor and play every game?
