The International Monetary Foundation and Scottish Premier League outfit Dundee United are locked in negotiations in an attempt to arrange a swop of their star men.
The IMF's chairman and leading light Dominique Strauss-Kahn is currently in Rykers Island prison in New York while he faces charges of attempted rape of a hotel chambermaid.
Dundee United's star striker David Goodwillie is on bail and is facing a similar charge relating to an incident at New Year in Armadale, West Lothian.
The IMF are urgently needing someone to take control of the tricky negotiations surrounding the proposed bail out of Portugal and Greece. An IMF source revealed that many on the executive board would see Goodwillie as the ideal replacement for Strauss-Kahn due to the young Scot's well reported skill at picking a hole in the strongest SPL outfits and his ability at finding a way through complicated defensive formations.
United for their part would welcome the vast experience Strauss-Kahn would bring to their ranks, especially as they are liable to lose many of their older heads in the next few weeks through freedom of contract.
