Figo to AlIttihad?

Reports of Figo's sudden departure to Al Ittihad are all over the internet and can no longer be ignored. The Saudi club even claims the deal is 'official', implying that we only need Inter's confirmation now. If true, this development is quite disappointing because Figo might've been very important in the second half of the season, especially in the Champions League. I think Inter were already going to sign a midfielder in January, but now we definitely will...maybe we'll even sign two. I'm very interested to see how this will play out.

From Figo's perspective, I'm not sure if it was the money or the lack of first-team guarantees at Inter that motivated him to change clubs. Either way, I'm hardly impressed. The team has been playing incredibly well, so that there is no way anyone could have a legitimate complaint regarding playing time. Or to abandon your team in the middle of a campaign for a pay increase is even worse. Ultimately, I would prefer that Figo stay at Inter (maybe he will?), but if these reports are true, I won't miss him when he's gone.

Maybe it's just me, but when I see him play with Inter his performances seem lackluster. Almost like his heart wasn't in it. Who knows, maybe that failed deal with Liverpool affected him more than we thought. But if he does go to Saudi Arabia good luck to him.

Damn the Saudis are just buying guys. They can make a explosive team for the years to come. One which will even do good when competing with european talent.

I'm sure you'd like to think that this was the case . In reality, snubbing Liverpool was probably a sound decision. Figo played quite well for Inter, his only weakness being a lack of pace. Even in the last match he proved decisive, coming on at the half and assisting on the winning goal. But this year he has been rotated (Mancini cites Figo's age, which I agree with), something he has perhaps not taken very well. I don't think he can make a good argument though. Last year he played almost every game and things didn't go as well for the team. This season things are going brilliantly despite his not playing as much.

u would like to see him with Liverpool...but I'm sorry 4 u...but the 1st thing that he said when he came to inter was "I didn't hav any doubt..Inter is my team...I hav never thought to move to Liverpool even if they are the CL champions"...so...I'm sorry 4 u... ...

i like the fact that saudi are able to lure players of such caliber

but why figo couldnt wait till end of season & win a legitamite scudetto title

but then again money does talk apparently very clearly

he is being offered an 18 month contract for 3 million pounds

even at 34 Figo is able to make a difference when playing for intermilan

my good fortune is that i might get to go to jeddah in coming month & hope to watch him, i am sure my bro would like the idea of watching figo up close
