WILLIAM Gallas is on the verge of completing a headline-grabbing move that would take him from Arsenal – though he’s a free agent right now – to rivals Tottenham.
This is not a joke, this is not a test. It’s real and it’s happening. In a word: wow. I didn’t see this coming and I’m not sure what to think. I’ve never liked Gallas, though he’s obviously a very good footballer – at the end of the day, I suppose that’s what matters.
Anyone who thought Gallas’s high wage demands, reported to be in the region of £80k a week, would thwart a move to White Hart Lane, didn’t reckon on Harry Redknapp being throughly reasonable about the deal.
Redknapp said of Gallas: “His wages aren’t a problem. He has not been greedy at all.
“His people have rung up and we spoke about it.”
The Spurs gaffer added: “He’s been an Arsenal player but he was at Chelsea before that and playing abroad before he arrived there.
“It’s not like we would be signing Tony Adams. He’s a good player and he would be a very useful addition to our squad.”
Judas, Gooners? Yeah, I think you just found your own Sol Campbell hate figure.
Spurs fans, what do you make of this fresh madness?
