Te salut, Don Carlo.
I'm not saying we told you so...but...
Remember that supposed blockbuster move that Paris St.-Germain made for Ashley Cole? You should, The Daily Mirror shouted it to the world just two days ago. It was going to be sensational, they told you! The sheeple were quick to echo it.
O mercado fechou para nós. O clube fez um bom trabalho. Todas as notícias vindas de Inglaterra não passam de rumores.

Well, at least Carlo's Portuguese translation. So let's continue that game of telephone by plugging it into the trusty Google Translate machine:
The market closed to us. The club did a good job. [Note] All the news from England are just rumors.
There we have it. Straight from the source.
Told you so!
[Note]: I hope others appreciate this understatement as much as I do.
