Loic Remy Prefers Sitting On Chelsea Bench To Playing For Newcastle

7 years ago

With only 48 hours of the transfer window remaining, Queens Park Rangers are clearly desperate to get Loic Remy off their hands.

With the player also desperate for a move to ‘Champions League’ club, QPR want to get his wages off the books as well as pocket the transfer fee – which would free up a space for an incoming striker.

[intlink id=”46629″ type=”post”]Yesterday it emerged that Newcastle has made an offer[/intlink] but Friday morning saw Loic Remy make clear he has no interest in moving to Tyneside, the striker only interested in the aforementioned Champions League clubs.

Rangers have clearly pitched the player to Newcastle because under the bizarre terms of his contract with the West London club, while there is a release figure of £8.5m for Remy if a top four club comes in for him – if it is a run of the mill Premier League club then the figure increases by several million.

So obviously it is more advantageous if ‘Arry Redknapp can flog him to Newcastle rather than say Liverpool, Arsenal or…Chelsea.

With the transfer window drawing to a close Chelsea have now agreed a two year loan deal which will allow Fernando Torres to escape his personal nightmare.

However, with the Spanish striker’s departure imminent, it is now widely reported that Chelsea have moved for Loic Remy to provide back-up for the likes of Costa and Drogba.

Just like when Remy decided to skip Newcastle’s match at Liverpool to keep himself for the World Cup (played half an hour in total as a sub!), it now looks as though Loic can look forward to keep himself fit on the bench so he is ready for appearances in the Capital One Cup and the odd substitute appearance in Chelsea’a competitive matches.
