PostSubject: Lassana Diarra worth 20 Million?   Mon Dec 22, 2008 4:59 pm

Chelsea paid one million for him from Le Havre, he left Chelsea to go to Arsenal for an undisclosed amount, but certainly less than the 5.5 million Arsenal got for him from Portsmouth. Now he leaves Portsmouth a year later for 20 million.

I always liked Diarra and thought he would be a good player when he got his head straightened out and he was at a big club where they treated him like he thought he deserved to be treated. But can't see how his worth has gone up four times in a year.

Wonder if Portsmouth gets the full 20 million or do they have to give Arsenal and or Chelsea a share. There have been talk that Portsmouth need the money to pay for the Crouch and Defoe transfers so no new players coming in there but maybe they won't have to a fire sale. Am also hearing that Arsenal may get 25% of the fee.

One finally thing where does Real Madrid with their debts get the 20 million, plus the 20 million for Huntelaar and whatever else they spend in January? Funny how Real are allowed to borrow money to finance their transfers and Platini doesn't see any wrong in it.

This is a very interesting question and one that has been debated by Chelsea fans since the news of the transfer price came to be made public.

Let me just say something here on the position that the boy will be playing.

Half a dozen years ago Real Madrid would not pay Makelele the kind of money that he was asking for, even thou the other Real players insisted he was extremely important to them as he allowed them to all play freely.

We signed him for 16 million and Real Directors were laughing at us for paying so much for nothing more than a holding player.

He turned out to be worth every penny n helped us have a full trophy room - while Real went downwards quickly.

Now look at them - paying all that money for a player deamed by the coaches at Chelsea as a lesser player than Mikel for the holding position in Chelsea's future.

He is a good player - he is a player who will speak his mind - he is also no stranger to the treatment room for all manner of problems.

General opinion is they have paid too much - but a huge % of that decision is based on economy of the world just now.

Footnote:

Chelsea sold him as he was in his last 6 months of his contract n said he would not sign another.

What is Arsene's excuse for selling him?

Diarra was going to walk away on a free just before Chelsea sold him. I guess he wanted out because they would not guarantee him a place in the starting eleven. He was never going to start ahead of Makelele, but with Makelele getting on in age and at his age at the time 21 or 22 Diarra should have waited his turn.

Strange sale by Arsenal to Portsmouth, even last January, Wenger must have known that things were not going to well contract wise with Flamini. Just another example of his stubbornness and the inability to see the wood for the trees. Diarra would have solved some of the problems Arsenal have had this year with the lack of steel in the midfield and the lack of a water carrier.
