Arsene Plays Hardball With AC Over Ade

Arsene Plays Hardball With AC Over Ade

Arsene Wenger seems to be sticking to his guns over the price of Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Much has been made of quotes supposedly made by Ade and his agent, but there's other places to discuss that, but what is pleasing is to see Arsene says that if anyone wants the player, then they gotta pay through the nose.

AC Milan have long been after the Togan, but now their club president says it's impossible to sign Ade after Wenger slapped a monstrous £35 Million price tag on him.

Adriano Galliani told the AC official website, 'The request for 45million euros by Arsenal is an impossible request,'.

Good on you Arsene!!!!

Barca have just bought Alves for something like 30 million, so they first have to get rid of Ronadinho to have enough cash available. I wonder if swopping Ronadinho for Ade is a clever move.

I don't know whether Ronaldinho would be the right player for us, maybe maybe not. But Barca have put themselves in a position whereby Goofy will go for a deflated price after they admitted they didn't want him anymore, so £10-15 Million and Ronnie for Ade COULD be a good deal. I could gurantee that Ronaldinho would be a massive coup in a marketing context.

Would have been a year ago but according to a Spanish reporter on Sky, he is not in the best of shape and prefers the nightlife a bit too much so bringing him to London not the best idea!

Yeah you're right actually MrArsenal - His blingyness is probably worse than Ade's.

Like you say though, if we could get him cheap enough!!! Only thing is he would command horrendous wages as he still carries the 'brand Ronaldinho'!

I don't want goofy, and more importantly Wenger won't. He's on his way down instead of on his way up (not Wngers style). I don't think they'd pay that much for Ade anyway, especially after they caught a cold with Henry because they didn't do a proper medical.

Well navydave, Arsene has done this before to players... Gallas, Bergkamp, Pires seemed on their way down before Arsene took charge (i know Bergkamp wasn't Arsene's signing but still...) But I do agree with you that it's almost certainly not going to happen to Ronnie, and I'm very glad about that too.

I wouldn't say Gallas and Pires were on their way down (especially Pires). It's not an age thing, it's level of performance. Besides I'm not sure we would have gone for Gallas if it wasn't get more of a compensation for the p***k who went the other way.
