Pennant blows dream move to Real Madrid
Jermaine Pennant has blown a dream move to Real Madrid after refusing to take a cut in wages. The Liverpool winger now looks set to be loaned out to Wigan in January.
The Daily Moan reports that Real had tabled a £3.5m bid for Pennant who has been languishing in the Liverpool reserves this season, but the La Liga team were unwilling to meet the player's £60,000 per week wage demands.
The story is just another detail in a long list of what might have been in the career of a naturally gifted yet troubled footballer.
