Pesky press Oompah Loompahs the Daily Mail are gleefully reporting that Arsenal’s Cesc has dumped his Real Madrid obsessed agent Joseba Diaz.
Diaz – a man who makes Berbatov’s agent Emile Dantchev look like a benign teddy bear, apparently used his initiative and started talking to Real last summer about a potential Cesc move – a deal which Fabregas wasn’t interested in, and the talks only came to an abrupt end after Cesc’s family told Diaz to stop meddling.
Diaz is clearly the Slugworth to Arsene’s Willy Wonka and Cesc has done well to sever ties, although the Daily Mail journos reckon that the door is now open for Barca to launch a raid:
“Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are now monitoring the developments closely having been encouraged with Diaz off the scene due to the fact Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain doesn’t get along with Diaz.”
When is everyone going to get the message that Cesc is pretty bloody happy at the Emirates?
