Montpellier don't really 'get' transfers

Olivier Giroud is someone I had never heard of until the recent rumours about him possibly moving to Newcastle - but he's worth £42 million apparently.  Oh and he's 'too big' for Newcastle.  THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!  AM I RIGHT?!


Montpellier have decided for no plausible reason that Giroud is worth £42million since Arsenal might be interested.  This is what the manager said:
Newcastle? They are too small for him. 
‘Arsenal? We must see if Arsene Wenger  is interested because he has Van Persie. 
 ‘€10m? He won't go for that. 
‘Given that he still has more than two years left on his contract, he'll cost a lot more, either €50m (£41.7m) or €60m (£50m)
I think it's safe to say that he either hasn't ever heard of what money is, or grew up in a ridiculously rich family like Mr Burns was his Dad or something.  We asked him to get us a pint of milk while we were at the interview and he chucked us €4000, and as we laughed he then asked "what - is that not enough?  How much does that stuff cost?  It comes from fucking what?  Ha ha very good guys, everyone knows cows are extinct".
