He is asking for a pay rise, and they can decide if they give it. Seems pretty straightforward and it goes on all the time. Plus they are not really employers.
The cost to Arsenal to keep Bacary Sagna at the club: £20m.
He's demanding more than £90,000/week over a 3-year contract, plus a £6m signing on fee to be paid in annual installments.
Seems rather excessive, I wonder how many people here on this board who could 'threaten' their employers like this.
