Cheers Spurs, You Just Paid For Aaron Ramsey

Cheers Spurs, You Just Paid For Aaron Ramsey

With David Bentley's move to Tottenham imminent, Arsenal are set to receive a rather large windfall.

If reports are correct, the Gunners had a 40% sell on clause written into the contract when selling David Bentley to Blackburn, and with Tottenham set to shell out a staggering £17 Million on the player, Arsene Wenger is about recoup a massive amount of cash.

Wenger is renowned for having such contracts put into place and has recently made good money from the transfers of Jermaine Pennant & Fabrice Muamba.

So if (and that could be a big if) the 40% figure is correct, I'd like to say a big thank you to Daniel Levy, Juande Ramos, and Tottenham football club as a whole for paying for Aaron Ramsey and possibly our Premier League Champions celebrations :P

Wahat? They didn't get mugged enougn paying for the other DB last summer? You've got to love Spurs, they just never tire of humiliation. Mind you, I suppose they did get a massive windfall from us for Sol Campbell, oh, wait a minute.................

I guess the massive transfer fee was Blackburn wanting to make at least a couple of quid out of the whole deal!!

Spuds are so dumb they think a player who has "Bent" in his name costs an additional 10 million pounds regardless of talent!

I heard the spuds were looking to splash another 20m on Fray Bentos!!!

What about a £50m bid for journeyman striker Marcus Bent? And why not employ David Brent to the coaching staff?

Thanks for the cash Spuds. With Modric, that Mexican kid and now Bentley you are probably just one more signing away from *****ting your collective underpants and frazzled minds with desperate and clutching notions of how you are now 'really' going to 'do us', break into the Top 4, dominate the world etc etc. Another season of mirth is about to begin!

Very poorly written article the fee is 15 million. Maybe you should get a new article writer this is embarrassing.
