image for Manchester City Sign Wallace & Gromit

World's richest football club, Manchester City, are tonight involved in a new controversy after mistakenly signing the popular entertainment duo, Wallace & Gromit.

The pair - an old man and his dog - were whisked to Eastlands this afternoon after Blues boss Mark Hughes told City executives that he needed a hardman to bolster City's leaky defence.

Instead, Hughes' team contacted Aardman Animations, the owners of Wallace & Gromit, and offered a massive £50million each for the characters, an offer Aardman felt they couldn't refuse.

When the odd pair's creator, Nick Park, discovered what had happened, he was over the moon, having become fed up of them over the years.

Man City have endeavoured to buy all sorts of players since they were taken over by an Arab billionaire, most notably Brazilian start Kaka, who told them he'd rather play for Droylsden than turn out in a Sky Blues shirt.

City have made no move as yet for Peter Sallis, but it's only a matter of time.
