In a news that will surprise many Arsenal fans, it was revealed yesterday by the Times newspaper that Arsenal’s £40 million ( plus a cheeky £1 ) was rejected by Liverpool. Many were hopeful that Arsenal would be able to sign Suarez from the Anfield lords with the £40 million bid especially as it is widely reported that the South American has a release clause of £40 million.
To even make it worst, Liverpool owner, John W Henry has turned to twitter to mock the Gunners for bidding an amount they believe is derisory. Although there is a possibility of it been that Henry’s twitter account was hacked but the following tweet came from a twitter account that is surely his :
“What do you think they’re smoking over there at Emirates?”
The good thing is that according to BBC and so many other media outlets, with the £40 million bid, Arsenal can now talk to Suarez and possibly agree terms with him and should he should to agree terms with the Gunners, I expect him to put in a transfer request which will obviously put Liverpool in a tight corner.
Seems the battle just began and if Suarez shows his true colors, I expect Liverpool to lose this battle just like Arsenal lost hers to Barca years ago.
