Paul the octopus to Madrid?

Paul the psychic octopus looks set to be rewarded for his brilliant World Cup form with a transfer to Madrid.

Madrid’s Zoo Aquarium wants to buy the cephalopod who correctly predicted Spain’s World Cup victory over Holland on Sunday.

A spokesperson for the Spanish aquarium told reporters earlier today that they were willing to offer Oberhausen sea life aquarium ‘whatever they demand’ to ensure that Paul makes the move to Madrid.

The world's most famous octopus correctly predicted the result of Germany’s seven World Cup games as well as last Sunday’s final becoming something of a media darling complete with his own awful Europop song.
