    All the geezer has to do is say No
    Then make the player stick to his contract ( good luck with that )
    His agent will push the deal through full stop ,
    So Mr Aulas find a replacement Quick and ask for as much as you can,
    We could let you have Valencia as part of the deal and you can get Emineke with the rest,
