… wage packet.
Steve Bruce, for reasons best know to himself, would like to sign Nicklas Bendtner for Hull. But he can’t.
It’s not that Arsenal won’t sell. It’s that the Dane’s salary (he earns twice the GDP of Luxembourg per week) is too great for the Tigers.
“I’ve been able to get him on loan at my last two clubs,” he said. “I know the lad, he has terrific ability but it’s difficult with the amount of money he earns at the minute.
“He has a huge salary. It’s always difficult but we’re always trying. We’re looking to get maybe one more in. That will prove difficult but we’re working away.”
After holding discussions with Crystal Palace earlier in the week, there’s been no suggestion from the Londoners that they’re willing to contend with his enormous package either.
As we mentioned earlier in the week, the countdown to the deadline day loan is well and truly underway.
If not, he stays with us for his final season and given that Arsene Wenger has just one striker (and a raw kid as cover) on his books, watching B52 bomb in Arsenal colours once more may not be utterly implausible.18,924 views
