City May Scupper Arsenal's Andrei Arshavin Deal

Google language translator


Manchester City may scupper Arsenal's proposed deal with Zenit Saint Petersburg and put an offer in for the 27-year-old striker.

Arsenal are thought to have tabled a 10million bid the Russian international, however according to the Sun, the offer was immediate dismissed. No new offers have arrived from the London club.

Zennit Saint Peterburg spokesman Alexei Petrov said...

'I can confirm that Zenit did get an official offer of about 10m from Arsenal for Andrei Arshavin. It was rejected as insufficient. No new offers have arrived from them since.'

By all accounts, Zenit are going to hold out for their 23million asking price.

With Manchester City struggling to find a regular goal scorer, should Mark Hughes go all out and scupper Arsenal's proposed one and only January signing.

Why would Man City have to go after the one player that Arsenal want to sign? That would be low, with the billions there are many players you can get, so they should move along and stop hating.
Paulsito
We don't hate anyone Paulsito, well except the Rags of course.
Tudor
Let us have him. You have Vassell! ;-)
Tom14
Vassell who?
Tudor
I don't care as long as City hurry up and sign someone before our next game!
mcfcthriller
However Arshavin wants a club with Cjampions league staus and is more likely to move in the summer than now.
Buzz Lightyear
Because we have billions thats the reason that we can outbid clubs, ask Chelsea, Nearly put the frighteners up the rags with berbatov and the ended up paying more than they wanted to.
Buzz Lightyear
Having said that Buzz Arsenal are lousy payers
Doody
Yes Doody, they have a ceiling, which they broke for Fabregas and he is a far better player than Arshvin, I think the wages will be a problem, unless the lad is willing to take a pay cut or move to City who will pay his wages but no give him European football for a couple of seasons
Buzz Lightyear
anybody else getting the feeling....."clutching at straws".....

"Hughesless" has got his Bellamy goggles on. We're going back with 12 million. FFS.
Johnny Baguette
Newspaper hype, methinks. We don't need this sort of player. Goalkeeper, Centre Back, Midfield General are our priorities; possibly a big centre forward too.
Sindbad
Agree JB , its like a dog with a bone, won't let go until, its thrown in the bin for good or you let him have it. Put it in the bin, lets move on.
Buzz Lightyear
Blown me down if we might go and get the other bone as reorted in the muen. http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/manchester_city/s/1090064_blues_wait_on_cruz_chase
