The transfer window is often a crazy period, but SC Bastia decided this afternoon to make light of it in one of the most hilarious official statements you will see this summer.
The statement read as follows:
“After our missed meeting with Anthony Reveillere, Hervin Ongenda should join us today. SC Bastia informs you that it has contacted Marseille for Rod Fanni and Lorient for attacker Vincent Aboubakar. Furthermore, thanks to the contacts of our coach Claude Makélélé and the indecision of the player of Real Madrid, Angel di Maria, our club has also positioned itself for him. These names join the 1287 other names cited by fairly serious media outlets. One thing is for sure, on Saturday 23rd August at 20:00 at the Furiani there is a match vs Toulouse. Unless by then, “Meteo-France” confirms the arrival of a hurricane and a storm of blue and white hailstones apparently 10 to 20 centimetres in diameter that is.”
