A football agent with heavey ties with Real Madrid named Pedro de Felipe has offered a £200,000 bet to anyone who reckons Wenger will sign for Real Madrid, and dismissed the story as 'All lies, completely false'.
The agent had correctly predicted that the Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid story was fabricated, and is once again prepared to question the candidate.
'The Wenger story and the candidacy of Villar Mir is false,' de Felipe told Spanish newspaper As. 'All lies, completely false.
'I said the same thing about the (Carlo) Ancelotti story, going against everyone else, stating that, too, was a lie and time proved me to be right.
'The source of that false information was exactly the same as the one used now. The origin is the same and everyone knows what I am talking about.
'I shall go further. I will bet €300,000 (£200,000) that Wenger has not signed up with anyone and that on Monday July 3, Villar Mir will not present Wenger as coach.
'I shall place this amount of money with a lawyer if needs be. I am prepared, though, for them to prove me wrong and shut me up.
'I know that 20 days ago, there was a meeting in Paris. I know who was there and what happened.
'When the identity of the people who were involved comes out, many people are going to hide away.
'It is the same people that made up the story about Ancelotti. They will do anything to create expectations before the elections to play on the feelings of the fans and members again.'
'He (Wenger) will (deny it) do so, in some form, very soon. Wenger, who I speak to often, has authorised me to state that his supposed commitment to Villar Mir and Carlos Sainz is an invention and that he has not committed himself to anybody.
'Some people try to sell smoke, but the fact is that Villar Mir and his whole team are smoking the pipes.'
It's good to see someone speaking out so strongly against this bully of a club.
Would anyone like to take up the bet?
I'll keep my money thanks.
