According to superdeporte.es, the website which broke the news of Arsenal’s interest in Valencia goalkeeper, Vicente Guaita, the Spanish club have rejected Arsenal’s bid for the player.
They say that a meeting took place yesterday between Valencia officials and Dick Law but – and we know this will shock you, Arsenal’s bid – “did not even come close to the expectations” they had.
As such, Dick Law went back to London, but he did tell them that our interest was not over. Valencia told him the player was not for sale.
Arseblog News has been unable to confirm that Law arrived at the meeting with a cloth bag with the word ‘swag’ written on it, which was filled with peseta coins (especially that one which had the hole in the middle of it).
Either way, it’s another Arsenal bid which has been rejected out of hand by the club we’re trying to business with.
It’s almost as if we’re not very good at this.
