A return for Paulo?

Interesting news in more than one of the Sunday papers this weekend linking Paulo Wanchope with a return to City, coming only a season after he was sold to Malaga for a criminal return of £500,000 - a move which left us badly short in attack, which was even more apparant after the sale of Nicolas Anelka in January.
It was a strange sale at the time, and one which was blamed on the fact that he only had a season left on his contract but came after his most consistent and injury free spell for us.
Would it be good for him to come back? - Malaga are apparantly looking for no more than the £500,000 we received for him after he reportedly fell out with a section of their supporters. Although I don't for a moment believe Macken or Sibierski are nearly good enough, I don't think a Wanchope-Fowler partnership would work and would like to see us look elsewhere in the summer or allow Bradley Wright-Phillips more of an opportunity.
There is the old saying of 'never go back' - and in this case, sorry Paulo, I don't think so.
