Defender Says Deal Is NOT Done, But Talks Ongoing

Defender Says Deal Is NOT Done, But Talks Ongoing

Newcastle United defender Mathieu Debuchy has been heavily linked with Arsenal during the World Cup following the departure of Bacary Sagna to Manchester City.

In the last few days reports have emerged saying the deal has been done, however the Frenchman claims that isn`t true. He did however confirm that talks are taking place.

'It wasn't me who posted it on Instagram. Everyone is saying that, but nothing has been done. For the moment, we are discussing it. Arsenal are a great club. We'll see what happens,' he said.

The best deals are those that only become known when they're done. When the news 'breaks' early as in this case it suggests either the players agent or the selling club is trying to up their earnings out of the deal. In such situations it's tempting to just walk away and leave them to it.

With Wenger, I would amend that to read 'the best deals are those that actually get done'. I'd be happy with Debuchy, and if this is just a ploy by him/his agent/Newcastle to get more money, fair enough, that's the way the system works, whether one likes it or not.

His record suggests that he does do the best deals. The system works both ways. If the player, his agent or Newcastle are too greedy then leave them with nothing. In order to do the 'best deal' you have to be prepared to walk away.

It is often the case that the side eager to 'signal' to the outside world the state of an ongoing negotiation usually has a relatively weaker bargaining position to start with. In Debuchy's case (perhaps same as Fabregas') AFC is in a far better situation. To add to that, the club in the past has demonstrated convictions in its own valuations. And that is how it should be, given our business model.

Quite right, we are in a strong position on the Debuchy deal; he wants out, he is French and has kept out the guy he would be replacing and we do have an eager option in Serge Aurier. The Ivorian has kept himself available, waiting to see what the club does. I really do hope we get in most of our preferred targets. Liverpool don't look like messing about for next season, which should be of concern.

The transfer market trend increasingly is to agree personal terms with the player first before approaching the club. It seems that personal terms with Debuchy are already agreed and a fee with Newcastle is to be negotiated. Unless PSG or Monaco step in, it seems like a deal likely to happen.

Under FIFA rules it isn't possible to agree terms with the player before approaching his club. You'd need the written permission of the club before you could speak to his agent or the player if he's still under contract.

According to a friend of the family who is a football agent, the buying club establishes in principle with the selling club that the player is for sale, perhaps gets a ballpark figure and then the selling club gives permission to the buyers to talk to the player. Then when terms are agreed with the player, they go back to the selling club and try to agree a fee. Player power...
