I had not yet recieved any offers for Vucinic Or Bonucci so i decided to turn my attentions to my left back problem. So i began my search for a left back this was proving difficult for some reason the players i was keen on did not share my same ambition and they all had no intention of signing for Juventus. I was beginning to think players didnt want a woman in football either and didnt want to play under me but I was not to give up and continued my search after a few days id set my sights on 2 players Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Leighton Baines.
I decided Assou-Ekotto was the man i wanted to try and sign first and he was very interested in moving from Tottenham so i started the bidding with a 9 mill offer which they rejected so i offerd 10mill which was also rejected. I decided 12mil would be as high as i would go. Thats when i sent in my final bid of 11.5mill which was also rejected. Tottenham then sent me an email saying they would accept no less than 34million. Which i was absolutly shocked at there was NO WAY!!
i was paying that for him.
So i turned my attentions to Leighton Baines hoping id be able to get him at a more respectable price and after watching him play i was actully glad i haden't brought Assou-Ekotto has Baines was a much better player. His crossing and free kick taking was amazing he was truely a fantastic left back. I opened the bidding with a 15million pound offer which was declinded so i upped this bid to 19.75million this was also declinded. After not having much more choice has 19.75mill was all i had in my transfer budget i sat back in my chair and accepted i was defeated
