I disagree. I think Cesar is good enough for the top teams in any league in Europe (Barca, Real, Juve, Byern, United, City, Chelsea etc). I'd take him at United, for example, in a heartbeat.
I can see him moving to Arsenal for anything between £20m-£25m. I've heard that Arsenal are prepared to break their transfer record to get him, and if they do indeed have a big transfer chest available, then I can see them paying that no problem. I see that he's not exactly hit his potential for a couple of seasons, but he's only 25. And Arsenal play the type of football that suits him.
I think his wages would be the biggest stumbling block. No idea how much he wants, but I don't think Arsenal could offer him the higher end he wants.
£9m for Mignolet I heard? Wonder what that means for Reina? Especially given that a move to Barca seems off for this summer at least since Valdes is staying on to see out his contract there.
