Marta afraid of competition, wants security

Marta's agent Fabiano Farah told by AEG reps that his wage demands are unrealistic went back to Sweden to attempt reconciliation with Umea and to try to save his bargaining position.
"We are considering Umeå our number one and I am currently in talks with a possible Swedish sponsor" says Marta's agent Fabiano Farah in an interview with an Umeå newspaper. "This is the biggest club in Europe today, Marta has been there for more than four years, she has adapted, she likes the team, she likes the town and it's a competitive team."

Truth be told there are questions whether fragile Marta could handle the physical demands of the game in North America. Playing in Sweden where tackling is not allowed probably suits her more.
