Whoever runs the transfer business of that club is bat shit crazy. Having convinced myself they would sell for 50-55m in the summer, they pulled the plug, even though it was obvious he was for sale. It doesn't matter that they didn't have a replacement, it was still mad. Didn't think there was much chance he would move in this window because it would make them look stupid and Arse don't like to look stupid. Whoever thought it was good business to keep him for a few months while his value was halved? Then again, why would you let the contract run down to the last year? Whoever we're dealing with is barking, so I'd offer them £20m plus £5m in add ons for winning the Champions League, Ballon d'or and celebrity bake off.
