why arent we trying to sign Gabriel Jesus?
Because we have committed too much sin ....
Napoli splashing that Higuaín cash quickly. Deals reportedly close for Milik (€35m) and Tolisso (more than €26m).

Good buys from them, looks like Icardi is staying at Inter
So we are f****d as usual

How have u involved Arsenal in this lol
Sooo Juventus singed Higuain before selling Pogba, if now Pogba deal breaks down are they fukked financially?
No cos theyre quite rich lol

This Higuain deal is completely weird from what I've heard from Juve fans. Some are happy because they have basically won the title again, and others arnt cos they could of spent the money on future young talent to replace the ageing ones
No, because the contingency involves the sale of players like Hernanes, Pereyra, Lemina and Zaza; thus we would be able to recoup a fair amount of that total. I think that most Juve fans are happy about having another world class forward, but we know we overpaid for him and the disappointment is twofold: one, paid a king's ransom for a player who is definitely not worth that and somehow gave in to the madness of De Laurentiis, even for a management group that have been extremely shrewd in transfer dealings over the past 4 seasons; secondly, we don't anticipate him having a season similar to what he did last season for us in the near future- if he does or is able to deliver us a CL, it will go a long way to justifying that price tag.
+1
scenes if the pogba deal collapses :P
Juve have improved quite a lot financially since coming back to Seria A , also of I recall correctly they bag huge portion of CL money thanks to how s**t Napoli & Roma are in CL , they bagged some 70M euros during 14/15 season , Barca won CL that season but Juve got most from CL that season.
Pogba's agent wants a cut of 25mil this is ridiculous. Sorry why you have such a big cut??? I really dont understand agent bs. Why would players have such a greedy agents, who obviously care about themselves more than the player (which is in human nature, where you care about yourself).
+1
it's a big fee because the transfer fee is huge.

agent fees are usually 20-25% of the transfer fee.. so 25 mil is about right for a 100 million transfer.

of course, this is why agents always agitate for their players to make big money moves. agents get a sizeable cut of that transfer cake.
20-25% is way too much for agent fees for that massive transfer fee.
+4
This whole transfer is ridiculous ManUtd should just shut the door and move on
Didn't Raiola get a big cut from man utd for zlatan and mikhikaryan transfers too? Looks to me like he wants all the cakes in the world and eat all of them too
Such greed, These guys can give Sepp blatter a run for his money
Including agent fees the deal comes up to €150m+ I don't think Pogba is worth all that sorry
What job does the agent do that justifies such a huge cut?
+2
@OMGClayAiken that exactly my thinking..
Zlatan came on a free transfer so idk what cut he would have gotten. Not sure how that works
the agent is a lawyer unless i'm mistaken, they get paid for the negotiations and hammering out the contracts.

this is standard practice, why should it change because of the size of the transfer fee? would be the same as anyone going to court. if you win money, the lawyer takes a pre-establish cut of any payoff. i know a guy who works for a firm that purely does lead paint suits and routinely takes in 2-5 million per suit because he doesn't go to court unless they can get 10+ million. standard practice fellas.

big money deals like this are complicated, take weeks to sort out. it doesn't happen over night and with simple conversations.

the transferring of huge assets will always require expensive fees. whether or not his TF is justified is another question, but the fee is standard percentage.
Free transfers involve nothing to do with Agents, However player contracts involve the agent. So the contract you put up with Ibra most definitely, considering its Raiola, has a % fee that he obtains
Actually agree with SIF. Regardless of the industry, agency/representation is essentially a commission-based salary.

If it were the sale of a product or a service agreement with a client, the fee would be a fixed % of the contract/product value.

Dont blame the agent, he gets paid to strike lucrative deals for his clientele, the better the deals, the better his pay.

It's an obscene amount for a transfer fee but this is where football has inevitably been heading for the past decade anyway.
I think, the agents commission usually will be based on client's earnings(lawsuit/salary). The client/player has nothing to do with the transfer money(free or 100 m) and the clubs have nothing to do with agent once the personal terms are agreed.

In this case though, it seems pogba's agent made a special deal with juventus when they signed him for free.
The contracts in portugal, italian, south american leagues are weird and complicated with percentages, third party ownerships, swap deals etc
Lol Lyon's taking the piss here, basically mocking us at the same time. Well played.
On a serious note Wissem Ben Yedder is close to signing for Arsenal

He had the most goals in ligue1 behind lacazette and ibra. Solid player
Also interested in mustafi from Valencia in case of mertesacker's injury and koscienly's absence

Seems like we're moving

Mahrez, Mustafi and WBY

Thoughts?
This Chamakh all over again!!

Fook this i'm done!!

WENGER OUT
+3
be happy with that, as long as we get a striker..
he was linked to spurs for a while, loosely familiar with him. should be a decent backup.
Ben Yedder, basically a cheaper Lacazette. Now it makes a lot of sense.
Ben Yedder looks good, my concern is his size.. but then look at Aguero, he is pretty small and killing it in this league
aguero is built like a pitbull though, he's short but stocky.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEJ-t6a3WDU
watch this for Yedder goals
Not good with Penalties
Seenu88: lol, none of our players are good with penalties, didn't you see what happened in the euros? :P Xhaka and Ozil.

tbf, arteta and now santi are solid in pens as far as i have seen. pls, no ozil for pens haha
BREAKING: Lyon confirm they have received and rejected a €35m (£29.4m) bid from @Arsenal for Alexandre #Lacazette. https://t.co/w8u9tZJ15D


Oiii Lyon are c***s, can we just use the Barca tactic and say that he has our dna cos he's French or something lol
Lyon want €48mill which I don't see we will pay to.

But his is what negotiatios are for :D
But what is interesting is that they didn't state when the bid was made... Either way , Wenger won't be happy and might take his business else where
LOL its 2016 and some Arsenal fans are sill hurt over something which happened like what 6 years ago , tho can understand why.

Arsenal's forward search , Wenger likeness of french players is well known , this along with current market and much documented riches English club have , you don't see any issue with 35M Euros bid for someone that is expected to be very good in future ?

TBH Arsenal have been following him for couple of season now and considering all the above factors i think 45M Euros will be a pretty decent fee.
I will unleash my meowrmy on aulas and he shall bow before me and sell him to meowrsenal
+1
LOL WTF!! Lacazette is worth 100m now?I follow the League 1 closely and lyon would do well to get anywhere near 35 for laxazette, he has a big problem of missing sitters and being invisible vanishing in important games
+3
He scored against psg and monaco last season what are you talking about? He rarely misses sitters nowadays he was bad 2 years ago but has improved greatly. He's ready for a big move
+1
look at his performances in Champions LEAgue!! he vanished most of the games


unproven in EPL and champions league remember him missing couple of sitters against ZENIT last year.

35m is my book is fair trade for lacazette. he still has a lot to prove, but if you want to spend 100m of him be my guest he is not worth more than 35m
+1
@Patiek , No he isnt, but is Pogba worth 100M+ Euros or Higuain 90M+ Euros ? This is new reality , there is a huge inflation in football transfer market and we all have to live with it.

Besides if Carroll was worth £35M in 2011 then Lyon have every right to hold for something like £35M for Lacazette.

Chelsea just bought Michy Batshuayi for some £33M and he just had his breakthrough season , TBH many fans didnt even knew who Batshuayi is till Chelsea bought him
+1
Jeez malik calm, I was joking by my comment
only wenger would try and buy a lacazette for under 30 million when center backs are going for 30, 40, 50 million.
+1
^ only when manU buys.
+6
Yeah centre backs don't usually go for that much, it's only the Manchester clubs that bid that high lol
+1
I am sorry to say this but Arsenal fanbase (the small fraction i have access to) is one of most bipolar group of people. You guys have been complaining for whole year about how wenger is not wiling to go big for targets and now you guys are complaining that Lyon is holding you guys for more money.

Just few weeks back majority of people here were willing to pay 50M+ POUNDS for Morata
Malik... Welcome to our world :D :(
+1
Don't forget the Wenger Cokey - in, out, in, out, shake it all about!

+1
Lol fair enough, but luiz to psg was what i was referring to. i think thiago silva also cost north of 30 million too.
@Malik- West Ham had a bid of 40M for Lacazette turned down last week. Then Wenger comes in with a LOWER offer and expects a different result? SMH! He is so out of touch! It makes me wonder if he did this deliberately so that news would come out that a bid had gone in and make it look like he was trying to get a deal done, but with no intentions of doing a damn thing.

I'm almost convinced he is now just trying to be in the top 4 and not aspiring to anything more than that. This last minute business will not go well this season coz all the good buys will be gone.
+2
@SAM, I know about wenger , what pissed me was how arsenal fans react to this rejection , instead of demanding to put in respectable bid they're blaming Lyon.
All hail the commander in chief of the cate army, Cloudst !!!
+2
Welcome to my meowrmy covenant commander skool
CATS ARENT COOL!! GO PUPPIES!!!
Much like mou obsession with Wenger that say something to him whenever possible, we have some fans here obsessed about arsenal. It's really funny and also creative how they can bring on arsenal in every subject. Kudos to them, All this hate is much funnier when we finish above them :D
Fml lol, and I thought I was bad at embedding pics. This page is Fuuu*******
+2
I think its fair to assume that cloudst we knew is gone (RIP) and cats have overtaken control of his body and soul.

Well Futurama predicted it , cats are evil and they're gonna
take over the world.
