Davids sparks bidding war
Tuesday 25 May, 2004

Edgar Davids has decided not to make his loan spell with Barca permanent, sparking a bidding war between Inter, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The Dutchman moved to the Nou Camp in January for the final six months of his contract with Juventus, but has broken off negotiations for a new deal.

“We have no agreement with Barcelona,” announced representative Robert Geerlings. “Their offer does not interest us and we do not have any other meetings with them planned.”

It was strongly claimed in the Italian and Spanish press that the reason behind this split was an agreement with Inter.

There were even reports that the 31-year-old and his agent were already in Milan to discuss the final details of a three-year contract worth £2.4m a season.

However, this evening there are new suggestions that Davids is courted by Europe’s biggest clubs, including Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The fact that the former Juventus and Ajax hero is a free agent makes him a very appetising prospect on the transfer market.

“We have some very intriguing offers on the table from English clubs,” added Geerlings.


I really don't get why he wouldn't sign for Barcelona, he's been such a revelation for them and they have a promising future. Unless he really wants back to Serie A.

why is he being a *****
I've defended Moggi and crew for letting go of Davids since the beginning of the year for the very reasons we're really starting to see now that the summer transfer window is approaching.

Good for him if he gets that kind of money in a bidding war. But Juve has to move on and think about the future, not the past.

Although Davids would be very useful to Madrid.
