Caleb: Sunderland in talks with several "world-class" stars

Stadium_of_Light2.jpg

Sunderland's Stadium of Light. Rumors have it that several big name players are drawn to the Caleb revolution at Sunderland.

Ambitious Sunderland gaffer Caleb has revealed that following the sale of players, he now has a significant amount of cash to splash in the transfer market.

Said Caleb to goal.com.

"Oh yes. It's about time the Chelseas and Manchester Uniteds start looking over their shoulders. Our chairman has been really supportive of me, pledging to back me in whatever funds I should need. We are also currently in talks with several superstars, whose names I've decided not to reveal for understandable reasons. Should they arrive, I believe, attendances at the Stadium of Light will soar."

Re: My English Championship 2883 Sunderland Challenge

Have you signed anyone yet mate???

Bit risky letting all your players go if you've got no-one to replace them. :P

Haha mate. I got a trick or two up my sleeve. HINT HINT. I want to sell off my players first so when I get in 90s, my current player's chairman valuation won't drop :P

Transfer shocker: Messi signs for Sunderland!

Sunderland now boast arguably the best player in the world. Lionel Messi (L)

Messi revealed his reasons behind his move.

"I know people are questioning me after Robinho moved to Man City in similar fashion but failed to improve Man City's level of football. I believe I can be different. With Caleb, Sunderland has really showed their intent, snapping up players like Buffon, Fabiano and now me. I hope that in time, Sunderland will be up there with the Premiership elite teams. I can't wait to play against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday."

Caleb has confirmed that Messi will be handed the No. 10 Jersey.

"No.10 belongs to Messi no doubt. I'll not say he is our Messiah or anything. I prefer a team effort. But there's no questioning the class of Messi though. I hope he will do well for us."

Rumours are making their rounds linking Sunderland to Kaka, Xavi and Ribery.

To these, Caleb had this to say.

"I'll not rule out a move for any of the above mentioned players. What I'll disclose is that, we, have, plenty of cash more to spend."
