This morning is Friday, June 5. There is still essentially another three months to go until the transfer window closes. And, to be honest, if nothing happens with Cristiano Ronaldo in this time there is only one thing for it. I'm going to have to kill myself.
Who cares if there is an agreement in place, if the alleged golden handshake took place or if Florentina Perez, the king of the galacticos, is going to herald in a new era of high spending and underachievement?
Of course, as we know only too well here at Soccernet Towers... we have to write about it. So do the papers. And so does everyone else.
Today's big one is over at the Daily Mirror where it is thought Real Madrid could twice break the transfer record. Firstly for Kaka and then pay Â£75m for Ronaldo - as United will do business on that fee. Just talking about money, money.
The Daily Star harks back to the little agreement to sign Ronny by the end of this month. There's been plenty of talk about get out clauses and insurance policies on the deal, and this paper claims Ronaldo himself will be paid Â£26m by Real if the deal does not go through. Not bad for a summer's speculation. The Independent backs that up.
More big money being talked by the Daily Mirror, and could Aston Villa be set to lose another of their key players? Rumour has it that new Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to splash Â£20m on Ashley Young. The Sun says Ashley Cole will get a new deal worth Â£130,000-a-week to keep him at the club.
Speaking of Garry Barry, and it seems Gary Cahill - both were at Villa - was none too happy about his defection to Manchester City. The Daily Star says the two had a bit of handbags on the England training field. Barry was clattered for a penalty but there was no forgiveness.
Most of the press on Friday morning is concerned with the impending doom at Anfield, with questions over George Gillett and Tom Hicks' ability to refinance their huge debt on the club before the end of next month. The Times asks if Liverpool can pay the interest on the Â£350m debt.
And the Times reckons it means David Silva will head to the Bernabeu instead of Liverpool.
Rafael Benitez has spent time since the end of the season insisting he wants to keep hold of Xabi Alonso. Well, he aint going to get Garry Barry now is he? But guess who's been linked with him? Yes, the Daily Mirror suggests that, ahem, Manchester City could sign him.
City, however, are tipped to miss out on Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko as the Daily Mirror says he will head to Arsenal as an Â£8million replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor. The Daily Star carries the City link. And The Sun has Adebyor going to Milan.
The Sun thinks Arsenal wil also sign Yaya Toure from Barcelona to be reunited with his brother Kolo.
There's been plenty of talk about Tom Huddlestone so far with the England Under-21 international seemingly not in Harry Redknapp's plans. So the Daily Mail thinks he will be off to Aston Villa. The Daily Star thinks David Bentley could make the same move.
Another player out of the door at Spurs, so says the Daily Mirror, will be Didier Zokora. But will Sevilla pay the Â£8m wanted?
And the Daily Mail also thinks Birmingham and Bolton will be fighting for Lucas Biglia of Anderlecht for Â£6m.
One of the first tasks at Sunderland for Steve Bruce will be to get a big target man in. And he really is going big, accoring to the Daily Mirror, for the world's tallest player, Serbian striker Nikola Zigic.
