The QPR bruiser, who is famed for not being able to play football with his feet, appears to be a long standing target for the big spending clubs.
Derry’s agent, also known as his Uncle Pete, spoke of his amazement at the news while drinking himself to death at his local pub.
He said: “Let’s face it, Shaun’s not very good. He’s old, ugly and is crap at his job.”
After that ringing endorsement it’s no wonder that the new mega powers of European football want the defensive midfielder at their clubs.
A source close to Russian owned Monaco, revealed that the club are willing to break the bank, just to spite their Parisian rivals.
“We thought they would go after Ronaldo. But, when we heard they were interested in Derry, we knew we had to get him first.”
This news will of course come as a surprise to QPR, who have never felt the need to pay a player of such low quality.
The West London club released this statement:
“Shaun is a walking mess of a human being. We have been trying to get rid of him for years.
“In an ideal world we would wish him luck, but really we couldn’t care whether he lives or dies.”
