Today I must be brief. Work calls, and as much as I don’t want to answer, I am contractually obliged to.
News is sparse out there, but the one nugget to get chins wagging and tempers flaring is the peculiar revalation from Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, that Arsenal are yet to make any kind of offer for Gonzalo Higuain:
“We don’t want Higuain 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.”
Strange. I was under the impression the price was in the process of negotiation.
I don’t know about you guys, but this is all starting to get a little boring as far as I’m concerned. One minute the deal is a certainty, the next it might not even have started. There is no way to tell what is truth and what is made up to shift a few extra units to those hungry for news.
The only option is to wait. Hope for the best and wait and see. Arsenal have never liked conducting business in the open. Politics and gamesmanship comes into play, and there appears an element of media manipulation at play here, and it’s coming from both sides.
I’m just going to leave it all alone. If we sign a player of Higuain’s calibre, I shall be ecstatic. If we don’t, well, it’s best to just move on an accept that it wasn’t to be. I see little point in using a situation few us have any real knowledge of as an excuse to fire petulant remarks at those running the Club.
More of this will follow. Transfer mania won’t be leaving for a considerable amount of time. Tomorrow, I’m sure it will all be back on and the player will be signing subject to one of those medicals we hear so much about.
Remember; don’t believe anything until…..
Ahhh, you know the rest by now.
That’s all for today, folks. Use the comments. You know the drill.
As always; thanks for reading, you beautiful bastards.
