Some strange things happen in this world – and after everything seemed to be cut and died and Loic Remy would become a Liverpool player after he had agreed terms with the Reds – news is that he has failed his medical.
Loic Remy - will Newcastle try to sign the player?
So where does that leave Remy – and where does that leave Newcastle?
He is still a QPR player, and we suppose if he can get a bigger wage at QPR he will stay there – and the news earlier in the summer was that he wanted to play in London – but that was before Arsenal couldn’t agree terms with the player.
It is being reported by Sky Sports that Liverpool have pulled out of the transfer, due to their concerns about his medical – but other than that we have no idea what it could be.
When he moved to Marseilles for €15M in August of 2010, there was some concern over a heart condition he had, but he eventually passed his medical at Marseilles, the last club he played for before he signed on at QPR about 18 months ago.
Arsenal could not agree a wage package with the player and the news at Liverpool was that he had to lower his wage demands for the Red to agree a deal.
But it does seem he is after big money – as he was when he decided to join QPR and was willing to play in front of crowds of 17,000 18 months ago, when he could have joined Newcastle, who play in front of massive 52,000 crowds at St. James’ Park.
And the French manager Didier Deschamps didn’t think the move to QPR was a good one for the striker and his International career.
We will have to wait and see what happens – but as we understand – Newcastle’s very decent wage offer is still on the table – but how much we would have to pay QPR for him is another matter – with some reports stating it could mean a £15M transfer fee.
Loic Remy sullied his name among a number of Newcastle fans, when he seemed to not want to play too much for the side towards the end of the season, to save himself for the World Cup in Brazil.
And so the Remy circus continues.
