    Moldovan sensation Bugduv to be loaned to Irish club Cork City?

    BALTI, MOLDOVA (AP) The top sports daily in Balti, Moldova is
    reporting Tuesday night that Moldovan teenage sensation Masal 'Massi'
    Bagduv is in London with a view to signing for a leading English
    football club, with Reading FC being named as the most likely
    destination.
    If signed, it is believed that the teenage international who is now
    out of contract at Olimpia Tirol will be loaned to Irish Club Cork
    City for the remainder of the Irish domestic football season and will
    return to play for Reading in mid-winter.
    The deal is believed to be part of the plans by Reading to sell
    Ireland striker Kevin Doyle and to purchase Cork striker David Mooney.
    "Massi is a player of great and enormous potential who will bring wins
    to what ever club he plays for. Already this year he has caught the
    interest of Arsenal FC manager Wenger and Zenit St Petersburg, but he
    wants to play in English football and our plan is to gradually
    introduce him to this" said his agent and mentor Sergei Yulikov last
    night.
    "I cannot comment on the Reading situation and the link with the Irish
    club City of Cork FC,"but if it means that Massi will be playing in
    England this season 08-09, it can only be good for him.
    Bugduv left Moldova at 0700 GMT Tuesday in the company of Yulikov and
    flew to London via Budapest, where it is believed he has met with
    officials of Reading FC.
    Masal Bugduv has been described as one of the most exciting young
    footballers to come out of Moldocan football.
    Born on April 14, 1992, he shot to fame playing for his native FC
    Olimpia B?l?i for whom he scored a hattrick on his competitive debut
    in an Adzi Cup match in December 2007.
    Bagduv became the youngest player capped at that level by his country
    and he went on to make his senior international debut aged just 16
    years and 44 days when he came on for the national team in their 2-2
    draw with Armenia in a friendly international in Tiraspol on May 28.
    Trailing 2-1 with just ten minutes left, Moldova seemed set to lose
    until Bagduv lost his marker on the left wing, shimmied inside two
    defenders and fired in a shot that could only be parried by Armenian
    keeper Racif into the path of onrushing Igor Bugaev who equalised.

    Several media outlets were left red-faced after tipping Moldovan international Masal Bugduv as football's next big thing only for it to emerge that the player does not exist - a web of blog postings had created the player out of nothing. (Guardian)

    i'd say there was probably the usual crowd of people who say they saw him playing lots of times on moldovan tv and always knew he was going to be the next big thing :D
