Gus Poyet splashed out close to £3million to lure the Argentina forward away from Internacional in January.

He arrived in England with a big reputation, but failed to live up to expectations and is still waiting for his first Sunderland goal.

It is now being suggested that he could be offloaded back to South America when the transfer window re-opens, with the 29-year-old seemingly open to the idea.

Boca Juniors are reported to be keen on offering him an escape route from the Stadium of Light, but they have been warned that they will not be allowed to break a two-and-a-half-year contract on the cheap.

Scocco’s representative Fabian Soldini told American Closs: “The only way that Scocco could be transferred to Boca is if they pay the same money that Sunderland invested in him, which would be near 5.5million dollars.

“On the other hand, the coach of Sunderland wants Scocco in his team and it is he who makes the decisions at that club.

“Taking that into account, it would be difficult for him to be transferred to an Argentinian team. But, in football, anything can happen."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
