Best Bargain Ever

Theo Walcott is widely considered to be one of the best English footballers among the younger generation. So this comes as something of a surprise:

Arsenal risk losing teenage sensation Theo Walcott for less than £400,000 while they drag their feet over his new contract.

The reason is apparently because of a quirk in the rules that govern how much young footballers are actually worth.

Caveat emptor: the article is from the Daily Express, which is hardly a bastion of reliable journalism. The view here is that such a move is highly unlikely, but it's amusing to ponder this man's reaction were it to actually happen.
