Senna Too Expensive For Swansea City Says Rodgers
Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that a deal to sign Marcos Senna will be 'a bit too rich' for Swansea City, as the player now looks set to stay at Villareal.
The Brazilian-born midfielder gave Swansea's chances of signing him a boost last week when he said goodbye to the Villareal fans via the media after spending 9 years with the Spanish club. But in a last-ditch effort to try and keep him, they look most likely to keep him as Swansea City won't be able to match their wages.
"I spoke to Marcos and our initial feedback was positive,"
"He was keen to come but I think it may well be that the deal will end up being a bit too rich for us."
Senna said he is confident he'll reach an agreement with Villareal over a new deal:
"The will of both parties is to continue together and there are only very small differences separating us at this moment.
"Following the informal meeting, the president`s son told me he would contact my agent.
"I`m optimistic that we will soon reach an agreement. I have been here a long time. I want to stay at Villareal for many years. Well, at least for one year."
