Steven Pienaar's talks over a move to Chelsea have broken down and Sky Sports sources understand the Everton midfielder will sign a pre-contract agreement with a major European club.

Bit gutted if he has turned us down for the likes of Athletico but i dont blame picking Madrid over London.

I'd rather not have a takeover-look whats happened to Portsmouth and Man Utd with all the debt.
Right I've calmed down now. All the best to Steven. He did well. Quite spooky. Went to Bayern Munich in one of my saves.

Interesting. 2 bids accepted, and sounds like he's actually leaving in the near future, before close of window.

yeah. Don't want him to go, but we desperately need cash. Can't let that sort of talent go for nothing

We more than likely offered him less than whats his on and not a guarenteed starting place in our squad so i can see why he rejected. This does tell 2 things though, 1 is that Chelsea are atleast in the market this month and the second is with Pienaar only costing around 3 million it shows the kind of money we are looking to spend. i.e bargains.
