Why did Remy not join Liverpool or Newcastle? Can't remember what happened.

Failed his medical, heart issue was detected.

Torres financial situation, for those interested:

Essentially, loaning Torres to AC Milan likely saves Chelsea somewhere between £6m and £9.1m both this season and next season, but he remains on the books at a cost of somewhere between £9.1m and £12.2m per year.

It appears that Milan are paying a much bigger portion of his wages than I'd thought (the explanation is in the article). Good to see the back of him, pretty nuts to be losing 9 to 12m (essentially still our third (or forth) most expensive player on the books, after Hazard and Costa (and Willian)) a season for a player not even here...

Thanks for the financial update - very helpful been hoping to get realistic figures...

As for Remy, I was under the impression that he's actually fine (heart-wise) and the reason he didn't go to Liverpool in the end was money/Borini wouldn't go?

Thanks should go to the always excellent Jake Cohen. (@JakeFCohen)

But you're welcome, anyway.

Lot's of denials all around (a failed medical can ruin a career), from the QPR and Remy camp.

But according to reports, Liverpool sought other opinions and finally decided against a transfer. Seing as Liverpool is quite a muppet club concerning transfers, and even they passed him up, maybe that should set off the alarm bells.

Failed medical after which Harry R announced that he couldn't possibly have failed his medical, it must have been some other reason.

The other reason being a counterbid by Chelsea perhaps.

Allegedly it's simply because Borini refused to leave Liverpool. And possibly some disagreement with Rodgers.

Can't see it being a failed medical.

Not sure why we'd be after Remy.

Panic buy written all over it if it happened. We can and damn well should do better.

He never really was.

And who do you suggest we should get that is actually available? Falcao is on his way to Madrid and Cavani is seemingly staying at PSG.

Everyone else is tied down to their clubs so what else can you expect the club to do-wait and go with just two strikers?

It really shows we had no plan.

No idea about the we aint got no history analysis, but if he is basing it on a Jason Burt report in the Telegraph there is little point reading it.

Garbage in, garbage out as they say. And there is no greater spewer of garbage than Jason "friends of Roman tell me" Burt.
