Only yesterday I posted about the Higuain “deal” and whether we should be worried at TLTDTEW (The Longest Transfer Deal That Ever Was) taking so long. Now, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has come out and said:
“We don’t want Higuaín to leave.
“What’s more no-one from Arsenal has come to us and made us any offers at all for him. There are no offers on the table.”
So what the hell is going on?
After our £30 million bid for Luis Suarez was rejected by Liverpool today, now we find out that possibly (and maybe Perez is playing mind games) that the deal for Gonzalo Higuain was never a realistic proposition in the first place!
In terms of Arsenal conducting themselves in the transfer market, they certainly are making fools out of themselves.
Unless Arsenal are actually serious about bringing in Luis Suarez and £30 million was just an opening bid?
Personally though, it seems like Arsenal are “flexing their muscle” in the transfer market, and have an excuse when we don’t bring anyone decent in the transfer window. Arsene can turn around and say “we tried to bring in world class players and offered big big money, but it was the selling clubs fault because they would not negotiate.”
Seriously, we might as well put in a big for Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi while we’re at it.
How can we manage to make things so difficult?
We should just be pleased that we’ve managed to wrap up the signing of superstar Yaya Sanogo…
