If he's going to leave Atletico Madrid, it's for a big name team.

Atletico are no slouches themselves, but why would he leave a team not quite considered an elite team, for another 'project'? They've only just won promotion back to Ligue 1, and it's not as simple as bringing in a couple of good players to suddenly turn them into a potential Champions League side.

I've got a feeling he's headed for Chelsea, along with Mourinho.

So you can pretty much forget about getting Bony below market value.

Chalk that one up to wrong information from the newspapers. I wasn't aware of one until I read it earlier, and it turns out to be wrong after some more digging.
