Suddenly the silly season just got sillier.
But now Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told Univision that Arsenal have not made an offer.
“We don't want Higuain to leave,” Perez said, as translated by ESPN. “What's more no-one from Arsenal has come to us and made us any offers at all for him. There are no offers on the table.”
So what’s up? Are the Gunners really being gun-shy? Or is this a case of Perez posturing for the best deal possible?
