Arsenal Reject Barca's Latest Offer

Arsenal Reject Barca's Latest Offer

After an indepth discussion on Vital Arsenal yesterday about the pros and cons of issuing Barcelona an ultimatum regarding the transfer of Cesc Fabregas, it`s emerging this morning that Barca have lodged a further bid for the current Arsenal captain.

And that bid again, has been rejected.

Barca started the bidding this summer at a laughable £27M, and that`s despite having a £35M offer rebuffed last summer.

It`s not yet known for how much this latest offer was made, only that reports suggest it has been knocked back yet again .... Sky Sports News 'understands'

Vermalaen's response when asked if Cesc should be allowed to leave if he wants to: "You don't know what his real opinion is because you read things in the papers and maybe it's not right so I think he's always determined, he loves Arsenal and I think he's always determined to play for Arsenal." That's positive right?? I mean I know Cesc has remained quiet more or less all summer but he's in a difficult position where he doesn't want to alienate either club becausehe doesn't know where he will be next season.

Well it's time now for him to declare the next 12 months to Arsenal so we can sell Nasri, move on and bring in Mata. obviously Barca have once again come in way under what we want. So happy we told them to ***** off!!

Wenger is so predictable you wonder how the players are responding to him anymore. He's like Comical Ali from the second Gulf war spewing out his insistences that we are strong, mental strenghts, blah blah blah. I had no faith that he'd take the action required this summer. As for the past 5/6 seasons, he'd come out and say "we know what the problems are, we'll do what's necessary". Then as time goes by and the immediate pain subsides, back come on the rose-tinted specs and he'll be thinking "we were very close last year, the mark of a true champion is to come back again". And so here we are, 7 days before the new season, and we've lost our left-back and not replaced him, and we're one TV5 injury away from having Kos, Djourou and Squillaci as our centre backs. Here's another prediction: we'll continue playing tippy-tappy, not take our chances, and then concede goals. Predictable.

So you're saying we should just sell CF for what ever Barca think he's worth GV?

We have sent Bartley back on loan and have had bids refused for a 29 year old experienced defender. That we are looking to buy another defender is obvious. The question is will we secure the player we want by the end of the window. Will the people who have predicted the outcome of the window admit they were wrong in case we buy a defender..

fvkh off Barca, we're proud to knock you back, when we got your fax it wiped our crack

What is wrong Kos DV? I thought for a young playing his first season in the Prem he did very well.

This may be Cesc's last chance to move to his beloved Barcelona with Thiago Alcantara looking really really good in pre-season.Cesc Fabregas,now or never.

We got Udinese in the Champions League!!

Rocky - sorry mate, exasperated with it all at the moment, so just ranting away. No, we shouldn't just sell Cesc for whatever Barca think, I agree with that, but we should be building a side that can cope without Cesc coz we know he's going sooner or later.
