The Sun says Barcelona are looking to spend £50million on Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey…

The Sun says Barcelona have watched Ramsey ten times this season, and it will be 11 when they come to see him play in the FA Cup final.

This is, of course, how glorious, greedy and charmless Barcelona conduct their transfer business: they bombard the media with praise for their target, get current players to big-up the object of desire and prattle on about Barca being ‘more than a club’. When they do eventually make a bid everyone is pretty much resigned to the outcome.

Right now we’re just at the point where Barcelona begin to turn the player’s head.

But if you Gooners want really shocking news, here’s a photo of Abou Diaby playing football – table football at the Arsenal Foundation’s annual charity fundraiser.

Well, it’s a start.

    I don’t really see how praising a player in the media in the build up to signing them makes Barça “greedy and charmless”. Surely praising the player, as opposed to slating the player’s current club or other potential destinations, is the more charming approach. And I don’t see any evidence for their supposed greed either – they want to pay big money for a player to improve their squad. No different to any other big club. Except that the other big clubs tend to be owned by (greedy and charmless) oligarchs, whereas Barça are owned by their members, the fans.

    I thought Barça couldn’t sign any players until 2016…

    @Josh
    You must be living under a rock if you don’t understand how Barça signs players and think it’s “fair”.
    It’s greedy because they tap up players saying they want them, and will eventually lower the price very much. This 50 million will eventually lower to something around 20 million, if Ramsey really wants to go to Barça (and start winning something) he will force the exit and force Arsenal to lower the price.

    Good work trolling Arsenal fans.

  7. Bob says:

    How do they get around their transfer embargo?

  8. Joshua says:

    to be honest 50m for Ramsey is a very good deal for arsenal. Ramsey is very average. with that money we can buy benzema and schnenderlain at once……go go go Ramsey as you are not fabregas any way…

  9. Neil #2 says:

    @Joshua,
    totally disagree. He’s a completely different player than Cesc, and as for him being average, wait till he enjoys a spell of being healthy and see what happens. He can be brilliant, and gosh, I hope that Barca don’t come in for him.

    Heavy load of bollocks that. He is a wonderful player when he’s at his best, and he has been finding form lately. he’s been instrumental since coming back in february.
