First Villarreal, Now Benfica
After admitting that he has been in discussions with Villarreal, Robert Pires now says he is having talks with Man Utd & Liverpool slayers, Benfica.
Pires is still holding out for a two year extension but Arsene Wenger is holding true to his 'one year for over thirties' policy.
So Pires is looking elsewhere.
'I can confirm negotiations with Benfica,' Pires told Portuguese television. 'I like Benfica very much, my family are Benfica supporters and some of my family still live in Queluz.'
Pires has been a great goal scorer for the club and I would hold no grudges towards the player should he leave, he's earned it afterall!
