It’s off the table as he thinks we’re not prestigious enough for him though. It doesn’t seem to be money holding up any deal.He has a contract offer on the table apparently from Juventus in the region of £5.3m-a-year, which could raise to £7m related to performance-based bonuses. That’s hardly like the £175k a week he wanted from Barça.
I think we can afford that. Remains to be seen how much of a risk we see him bringing to squad harmony etc.
