Arsene Beats Chelsea, Again
It has been made known that Chelsea failed with a bid to sign Arsenal's new star, Tomas Rosicky.
This new coup makes it four players in less than a year the Wenger has signed from under Mourinho's nose. 'The Special (needs) one' also tried to capture Alex Hleb, Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott, however all four players realised the range of possibilities at Arsenal and opted for the N5 club.
Despite offering more than twice the amount Arsenal paid for the player, Dortmund, rather funnily, demanded more.
Pavel Paska has confirmed that Chelsea would not meet Borussia's demands.
"Chelsea once offered Dortmund €18 million but Borussia demanded €22 million so the deal went wrong," Paska told Sport.
I feel the world of football is becoming wise to the Chelsea spending machine, after the Blues bowed to the pressure of Lyon at the begining of the season by paying 24 million for Michael Essien despite claiming they would never pay that much.
I wonder what the odds of a Rosicky winner at Stamford Bridge next season will be?
