    If Suarez really wants to go, he knows there is concrete interest so he needs to hand in his transfer request now. Would be happy if we got him for 40-49M. 50-60M would be overpaying but I'd be relieved that we finally signed a world class player.

    He's apparently allowed to discuss with AFC now so I reckon he'll try to suss us out to see whether we'll pay what's required to get him. If he thinks we wont pay enough anyway, he's not going to **** the bed by throwing a moody with LFC. But I could easily see him handing one in if AFC give him a wink and a nod.

    It reminds of that trick you can do in football manager to buy a player that's too expensive. Pay £1 up front and then spread £40m over the course of 36 months, but it still registers as a £41m transfer.

    Would be funny if that's what Wenger tried to do

    Seriously guys get real. You have no chance with Suarez. He's either staying with us for another year, or he'll be off to Bayern/Real; which is a career leap. Why would he want to move sideways and join Arsenal where he also has to stay in England? I'll have a good old laugh looking back at some of these comments come Sept 1st when Suarez will not be an Arsenal player. Madrid are still favourites to sign him without even making a bid!:lol:
    I don't think Arsenal will sign him either but how exactly is it a sideways move? They've finished at least 10 points above Liverpool in each of the last 4 seasons despite them spending over £200m on transfer fees :lol: Arsenal can offer Champions League football. Liverpool are nowhere near that at the moment.

    The only people who think it's a sideways move are Liverpool fans, who are stuck in this 'big club' mentality despite very little evidence to support that. Newcastle fans had to deal with the same adjustment, Liverpool are just slower at understanding that their team isn't competitive and won't be for a number of years yet at the very least.

    With Arsenal starting to flex financial power (which I think will continue over the next few seasons), it's difficult to see how the top 4 will become dislodged, with Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea already spending supermillions on a regular basis.

    Lol I can't believe Napoli are on the verge of signing Higuain. Soo much politics with Arsenal regarding signings.

    The sooner we can get suarez or someone similar the sooner we can focus on our other targets. I don't understand why they can't pursue all their targets at the same time instead of just focusing on suarez. Something tells me that if he did join, it wouldn't be for another 2-3 weeks and that would mean other signings would miss the whole preseason.

    If we do end up buying Suarez and it's indicative of our future spending, it's really going to put the squeeze on City/Chelsea and any other team that's struggling to make FFP or turn over profits. They're never going to be able to spend as freely as the past few years and now it seems like Arsenal are sitting on a heap on money, the tables could be turned, with Arsenal being able to outspend other clubs due to making huge profits, just like Bayern Munich.

    Even if FFP doesn't affect them so bad, Arsenal are still in a great position to hopefully not be building up debt in order to stay competitive.
