Xavi admits Barcelona cannot afford Cesc
February 11, 2011
Roman Abramovich may have done the biggest favour to all connected with Arsenal Football Club this January transfer window.
By spending £50M on Fernando Torres, a player who was woeful at the World Cup and unwanted by Barca or Real, the Russian oligarch has priced Cesc out of the reach of Barcelona for at least a couple of seasons.
Current Barca Captain, Xavi Hernandez admits as much….
“the thing with Cesc is that there is a problem — he is now worth a lot of money!”
Aged 3 years younger than his chavski Spanish compatriot, Cesc must now surely be worth in the region of £60-70M in the open market. Barca are skint enough as it is, skint enough to take former supremo Laporte to court over bent accounting allegations.
What a ramshackle of a club.
There is no secret that Cesc desires to one day return home to his beloved Catalonia, but it will cost them… unless this Qatari money which has been promised turns up at the Camp Nou this summer, our boy aint going nowhere.
I’m certain that Arsenal done a deal last summer to convince Cesc to stay until this coming summer, and promise his release IF Barca can conjure up the correct money for him. The peasants tried to bid less than what Liverpool paid for Andy Carroll!
The future for El Capitan at the Emirates is looking stronger by the day…. bloody good show say me.
Ahead of the crunch Champions League game against the aforementioned Spanish pikeys next Wednesday night, which I will sadly be watching from the comfort of my living room having been cruelly denied a seat in a City Brokerage’s corporate box… we have the small matter of Wolves at home in the league.
A game that should see us close the 4 point gap on the Mancs… both of them… if City really go for it they can win, but they won’t and therefore I envisage a 1-1 draw.
Wolves are a flipping hardcore team on set pieces, thankfully Johan should be back, unless he is rested for Barca… we should not take this game lightly.. it’s going to be a long afternoon… just hope that by hook or by crook we scrape through and start to look forward to the Barca games.
Don’t expect an easy ride against the wanderers people… it may become our hardest game of the season to date…. but all that will matter is the 3 points.
For crying out loud.. surely we are due a dodgy penalty in our direction?
