Eintracht Frankfurt have chosen not to proceed with their move for Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner due to the striker’s wage demands.
The Bundesliga outfit had reached an agreement with Arsenal over the fee for the player, but Bendtner’s salary had always caused concern in Germany.
Early on Frankfurt insisted they could not pay Bendtner the amount he earns at Arsenal, leaving the striker talking to La Liga side Malaga.
Bendtner was in Germany earlier this week though and let Frankfurt know if they met his demands he would be happy to sign.
But, with the Dane taking home £2.6m per year at the Emirates Stadium, he has proven out of reach for Die Adler.
"After considering all the arguments, we’ve decided that it is not realistic to sign Bendtner", Frankfurt chairman Heribert Bruchhagen told Kicker.
The development seemingly leaves the door open for Malaga, while Bendtner could yet stay at Arsenal, having a further year left on his contract in London.
