It doesn't matter whether it's a meeting in a roadside hotel, ice cream in an Italian cafe or issuing statements via the press .... it's still tapping up.
After suffering some of the more blatant tapping up in recent history, Arsenal Football Club have been the victims of tapping up from Inter Milan and now, not entirely surprising, Real Madrid.
Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon says that his interest in Arsenal whizz-kid Cesc Fabregas will only be acted upon should the player request to leave.
'All the coaches love him but my policy is that it must be the player who makes the step to move because we do not want conflicts with any teams," said Calderon to Marca.
"Cesc has something beautiful as he is Spanish and this is one of my goals, to make Real Madrid more Spanish."
Does Calderon really think everyone is stupid enough not to see the transparency of the intent of his statement?
When you consider that Fabregas recently signed a new deal to keep him at Arsenal for a further 8 years, coupled with his recent statement that he loves our club and wants to remain here, then it's plainly obvious what the Real Madrid boys are up to.
Maybe Arsene Wenger should file a second complaint whilst he's reporting Inter Milan?
