Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has passed a medical in Italy ahead of a £34.5m move to Napoli.
The Argentina international, 25, has been heavily linked with Arsenal this summer but is now close to a move to the Stadio San Paolo.

Independent and Telegraph reporting that Suarez believes Liverpool must accept any £40m+ bids due to their finish outside the top 4 last year...

should clarify I haven't read any of said reports, just saw on Twitter

So strange. I would assume LFC wrote the contract, so I would assume they know what it says.

I just don't get it. Why can't someone double check what the contract says??

Reports he was demanding £80K/week. There are lots of quality, younger footballers out there that will demand much less. Glad we passed on this one.

Also have heard the Pablo Osvaldo rumors, but I'll believe that when I see it. Seems like Shad is playing it all close to the vest.

re: 2013 Summer Transfer Thread


you'd be surprised at the ineptitude of people when drafting contracts. BPG can back me up on this I am really confused though. never seen this much contention over a transfer provision. would love to see the contract. it will be a lesson to both sides for the future.

No I certainly believe that. I just can't see why/how LFC would struggle to write a pretty normal contract. I've got to imagine they have several professionals writing up the contracts.

re: 2013 Summer Transfer Thread


when there's specialized buyout options, sell-on clauses, etc, something where it isn't the standard form, it can get hairy.

for that clause to be interpreted as many ways as it has been really piques my interest. Liverpool's interpretation makes the clause useless. that's always been curious to me.

Well obviously that is for their own benefit. Pere Guardiola wouldn't have told us to bid the amount that we did if not for a reason. I could see this getting really ...lawyer-iey if the two sides differ on the interpretation of the clause.

Got a feeling this will get ugly if Madrid don't come calling soon

That's what he's on at Villa, unfortunately.

Bayern hasn't signed anyone today, I guess you can say I'm pretty mad.
