Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread
There is NO reason why any player would reject us IF we opened our wallets a little more. But that's the biggest problem.
Arsenal is a far more lucrative club to play for--above PSG and Inter, but obviously, we won't pay the same wages PSG would.
It's more like the board--being the misers they are--won't go for Lavezzi rather than the other way around.
that is my point. For example Arsenal, PSG and Inter all put in bids for Lavezzi and Napoli green lit it. PSG would offer huge wages + a pretty good chance of a trophy + CL football, Inter will offer good wages + they're a pretty reputable club, stays in Italy, CL football. Arsenal on the other hand, offer comparitively poor wages, not a huge degree of ambition and CL football. The only thing Arsenal have over PSG is the chance to play in the Prem and when that is your carrot over say double the wages then its not enough to lure him in.
