Arsenal - Mata Offer Rejected

Arsenal - Mata Offer Rejected

Juan Mata`s agent (his dad) has revealed that Valencia have knocked back an offer from the mighty Gunners for the 23 year old Spaniard.

Arsenal have been rumoured to be interested in the playmaker all summer as the Cesc to Barcelona rumours grow in strength. Indeed Wenger`s comments this weekend suggest we`re all but ready to sell.

On the back of that we`ve now learned Arsenal have lodged a bid for Mata, as presumably Wenger tries to fill the gaping hole that Fabregas will leave.

'Valencia simply rejected their offer, after some hesitation they answered 'no' to the Gunners' offer. So my son remains a Valencia player, for now. But I don't think it's their last offer." Said Mata Sr

'There are several offers for Mata and I think that Arsenal will come forward again. The situation is still evolving."

'Are Inter Milan one of the interested teams? I know my son holds Milan in high esteem. We'll see if Inter will come forward directly.'

It looks like it will be a protracted negotiation with Valencia looking at broadening the list of suitors for Mata's signature. It will be coup if we pull it off no doubt.

Again, it is down to Barca dragging their feet on Cesc. If we could be certain they will pay for Cesc, it will make a decision all the more easier. How is it when we want to buy a player we are expected to have the full sum in the bank, but Barca can stagger their payments and owe forever?

Offer Bendtner as bait.

But we have the cash to buy Mata and don't need to sell Cesc to buy so this seems to be yet another pointlessly drawn out saga.

Probably not if we need to buy a centre back too. Our TPA has around £30m in it approx and if we spend £18m on Mata without selling, it would restrict us if we try to buy Jagielka too. In any case, it looks like Valencia are the ones dragging this out.

According to my main man Myles, we are going to sign Jagielka and Cahill very soon. Reo-Coker is soon to follow...

Assuming the sales of Eboue and Bendtner go through then surely we would have the capital to buy both Mata and a CB without having to sell Cesc (if Farca offer the sort of money he's worth)

you lot are s h 1 tte, you can't even sign matta when he said come get me. Why don't you let fabregas, van pursey and Nasri go, so you can finish mid table where you deserve and move back to woolwich. do us all a favour !!
