Formica ready for Rovers
Mauro Formica has performed something of a u-turn and is set to sign for Blackburn Rovers after initially snubbing the boys in blue and white for Monaco last week.
The Newell's Old Boys forward had looked set to join Monaco after the French club had trumped Rovers with their secret weapon, a player called Lucas Bernardi who used to play for Monaco but now plays for Newell's Old Boys, to persuade Formica to move to the Formula One hot spot.
However, Formica is now in England setting terms over a move to Rovers after Monaco and Newell's Old Boys (N.O.B?!) failed to agreed a fee, which has let our lot back in.
The only sticking point seems to be his passport and whether it is out of date or not and whether he would need a visa? Something which is sadly way out of my league to explain.
