Ok the bid was rejected, and ok, Negredo was, like Carroll, reluctant to make the move to the Boleyn, but the fact the bid was made shows the determination of Sullivan and Gold to push on from last season.
Was Negredo seen as an alternative or as a partner for Carroll? If the latter, that is very exciting; if the former, it shows that we are not going to stand for any nonsense from the pony tailed pillock. Maybe, just maybe, the club is opening up the possibility of him spending a year in Liverpool's stiffs.
Negredo would be a fabulous addition to the squad and to the Prem, should it prove possible to coax him into making the move, but that is probably unlikely. Which is a shame for Suarez should he stay at Liverpool, because then there would be one player in England that he could call Negredo with out fear of a ten match suspension. That said, I'm not sure what the Sevilla man tastes like!
