Sporting’s president Bruno de Carvalho says he had not received a single concrete offer for their defensive midfielder William Carvalho.
Bruno de Carvalho made a statement to press at an event to state that Sporting Lisbon received no formal proposal for William Carvalho. “There was no single proposal for William Carvalho, we did not refuse an offer or anything, there were approaches, but not proposals! Why did he play in the National Team? No one said he had a permanent injury”
Yesterday Sullivan said on WHUFC.com “It is no secret that we made a club record bid for Sporting Lisbon’s William Carvalho but unfortunately that offer was rejected a couple of weeks ago. Late last night Sporting Lisbon made contact to accept the original offer, but unfortunately it was just too late in the day, and we simply did not have enough time to put the player through a medical.
“We were not prepared, as a club, to buy a player for that amount of money without him having gone through adequate medical checks.”
Well someone’s lying. I know who my money is on.
I don’t believe for one minute that if SL said the player was available for the original bid Sully would not have accepted it, unless he didn’t want it in the first place. The player was on international duty it is highly unlikely he would be playing for his country ahead of team mates if he was not fit. with this latest report and the loan offer report there is every possibility they are all covering something up and both parties are to blame.
I agree 32. At least one good thing has come from this latest exchange. We aren’t the only football club whose owners are full of BS!
If anyone wants a good laugh read this account of events apparently SL ask DS to prove his claims.
certainly made me laugh.
Sully is lying ! They will be off soon !!😉 SL are probably saying whatever to get carvalho back on side ? Who knows ? Window shut now its just bad feeling !! A royal mess 😉
A friend of mine ( palarse) says that Sullivan wants to be seen to be bidding but is happy is someone nips in at the end or if nothing materialises at the end. Big in excuses,for example player fitness, you remember Charlie austins knee etc. Big noise and little action- strange mentality which I don’t understand.
as the sex pistols man said EVER HAD THE FEELING YOU’VE BEEN CHEATED!!!!!!!
