As Cesc’s new agent, Xavi has been in the press talking about the potential transfer of Cesc to Barcelona. Xavi, a current player at Barcelona, has officially been announced as Cesc’s new agent – and will try to secure his move to the Catalan club in the next few weeks.
“I spoke to Cesc in Ibiza and he said he was suffering because he wanted to come. It’s more like, he did everything he could to come and wants to leave Arsenal – although he made it clear that now everything depends on the selling club.”
Normally when I go to Ibiza, I also suffer, but we call that a hangover in Great Britain, in Barcelona, they call it “I want to come to Barcelonism”… Cesc’s new agent, Xavi, was keen to react to comments from our club manager, Arsene Wenger, who dismissed the words from Xavi as
“It seems absurd to me. I was only acting in the interest of Cesc”
And that’s what every good agent does – acts in the interest of his client!
Xavi has a massive insight to the dealings inside the walls of Arsenal and believes Arsenal will sell.
“I don’t really know the situation but it seems they are more disposed to sell this year than last year. Maybe we can be a bit more optimistic [this year] but it depends on reaching an agreement with Arsenal.”
I’m sure Xavi is keen for his client not to lose his “loyalty” bonus – if Cesc requests a transfer, he will lose out on about £3m in cash… and for that reason, Barcelona will want to force Arsenal’s hand – Arsenal aren’t stupid though – they won’t accept a lower bid for the Spanish International – knowing that they’d have to pay him the loyalty bonus for selling him.
“All however depends on the agreement that Barcelona and Arsenal reach, because at the moment Fabregas is a player under contract with Arsenal.”
Yes, you’ve hit the nail on the head dear Xavism, it’s true, Cesc is contracted to Arsenal…
Wouldn’t it be funny if Cesc was sold, it was part-exchange for Xavi…??
For those of you who haven’t guessed yet – Xavi is not Cesc’s new agent… it’s just a joke, but it’s a believable one isn’t it?
Today there have been rumours that Everton have rejected a £10m bid for Jagielka – I for one, don’t believe we have bid for him at all. All the reports I can see (which is basically every news outlet) have this story, but no one has a quote from anyone – not even an unreliable source. Personally I think Arsene has other targets and basically won’t blow his whole budget on a £17m Cahill when he can get a player of equal skill and experience for less. With Man City selling Boetang recently and Chelsea after a new centre half, both Jagielka and Cahill may be involved in huge mega deals, and perhaps that is that is driving the price up and perhaps that is why we’re not in for the players…
And finally, there are rumours of us going in for Frank Ribery for £22m – a serious amount of money if true – Bayern are willing to sell – Ribery has been injured – but would we make him our record signing… or is he possibly a replacement for Nasri or Cesc… only time will tell…
