You heard it here first! Project 2010 were the first to recognize that Altidore’s cryptic tweet yesterday could mean Hull City or Manchester United. Sources close to the deal have confirmed that Jozy Altidore is, in fact, Manchester United’s newest star.
When Sir Alex Ferguson was questioned about this risky move, he stated, “We have a lot of faith in this kid. It is rare that you find a 19 year old with his international experience. I am fully confident that Jozy can step in right now and fill the void created by the signing of Michael Owen.”
Just kidding. He’s at Hull, pending work permit. It is a one-year loan with an option to buy. He has been handed the number nine shirt and is expected to start–this could wind up being a great move for Altidore. Let’s just hope his appeal goes through (his initial work-permit application was rejected).
