At The Hot Breakfast's Grand Final Eve Eve party this morning, Eddie McGuire was asked to respond to a massive rumour.
Seb Costello asked Ed about whispers he'd heard that could turn into the biggest story of the off-season.
"I was told yesterday that Collingwood is definitely trying to stockpile experienced talent for 2017 to get around this group of young stars," Seb said.
"They have sought out the interests of Daniel Wells, sought expressions of interest from Nick Dal Santo, and there may well have been some expressions of interest to Boomer Harvey."
Eddie was reluctant to confirm or deny any knowledge of secret discussions with the games record holder.
"Our recruiting staff will be talking to everybody, and yes we have a young list," Eddie said.
"This will all come out in due course. Everybody’s talking to everybody."
"I think there’s four or five clubs looking at Boomer."
Luke Darcy was extremely confident that the Wells rumour was valid, claiming the North Melbourne veteran has already been offered a three-year deal by the Magpies.
"Is Bucks loading up because it’s the last year and he’s declared he needs to make finals to stay in that role?", Darcy asked.
"No, the list manager and the football manager make those decisions. (But of course he has influence) - he’s the coach of the side," Eddie responded.
"There's a plan that's been in place for a while."
