Deal Offered To Make You Shudder

Deal Offered To Make You Shudder

Arsenal chairman, Peter Hill-Wood, has revealed that a deal is ready for Henry to sign, and the figures involved made him 'shudder'.

The Henry rumours have been doing the rounds for months, and with Henry announcing his intentions to stay only a few weeks ago, the Arsenal board has wasted no time in thrashing out a financial package for the Frenchman.

'I know two things,' he was quoted as saying in Thursday's Daily Star. 'One, we want him to stay. Two, we have made him an absolutely fantastic offer.

'I'm not going to say what it is but I know it made me shudder. It's a lot of money,' added Hill-Wood.

'It's for five years. Arsene Wenger thinks he's 'physically very capable' of playing for another five years.'

'But we've made him very welcome and we've made him a very good offer which is probably as good an offer as anybody in this country -- maybe other than Chelsea -- would make.'

Hill-wood also stated that if the player want to leave, then nothing can stop him.

'If he wants to go to Barcelona, or somewhere, there's absolutely nothing we can do, although someone will have to pay something to get him,'

Henry has always claimed that it is not about the money, but the clubs ambition, and Hill-wood believes we already have it.

'Thierry says he wants to know if the club is ambitious, we're spending 350 million pounds on a new stadium and have just brought in three new players. That is not unambitious.'
