Amongst all the will he won’t he stories surrounding Cesc Fabregas stories, yesterday AC Milan ruled them out of any chase saying he was too expensive. If my maths is right, that just leaves Real Madrid, Manchester City and Barcelona to go. City we all know will probably pay silly money for him but Cesc has already said he won’t play for another English club.
That story has a long long way to go yet until we find out whether he’ll be playing for us next season or not. What will be, will be….
According to The Metro, both Wenger and ‘Arry have tabled offers for Falcao. The Colombian striker has just had a pretty awesome season with Porto, scoring 39 goals in 41 games. That’s just the kind of goals to game ration we miss up front, let’s hope this rumour has legs. The story comes from the player’s agent so whether this is just one of many we have come to expect remains to be seen.
The player is still in talks about renewing his contract with Porto, so no doubt this is all spin in attempt to get a pay rise….
Another player, who the same paper suggest we and Liverpool are ‘On Alert’ for is Stewart Downing – the Villa midfielder won’t commit to a new contract with his current club and has suggested he is at a crossroads in his career. Champions League football is something he wants at this stage in life so we will have the edge over Liverpool should Wenger decide to put in an offer for him.
I would love us to sign an Aston Villa player, just not this one!
Finally there is the Chelsea player who seems to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge, no not Drogba, it’s Salomon Kalou. He’s waiting to see how he fits in when their new manager is appointed and if he doesn’t, he’ll leave.
Wenger was interested in Kalou a few years ago but Chelsea didn’t want to discuss any kind of deal, they wanted to keep him.
Well, all of the above is pure speculation but onto something that isn’t.
Yesterday it was confirmed that we had finally secured the services of two fantastic players from a Spanish club. Not just any old club I hasten to add, it was none other than Barcelona, the Catalan Giants. No finances behind the deal have been released but the ‘package’ did include diapers for free until no longer required!! The players, both 16 years old are Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin.
Come on Arsenal, I know you want to look to the future but please, give us all just a little bit of news to make us believe you want to look after the present too.
The window may not technically be open yet but we can secure players from within the PL can’t we?
And lets not forget we need to secure one or two of our own either, especially those who have shone while out on loan.
Henri Lansbury has just completed a loan season at Norwich, helping them to secure Premier League football next season.
He’s one player I truly hope we don’t see move on, suggestion is he has been told ‘sign or be sold’ – all he wants to do is play for the club he loves. Denilson, Diaby and a few others have been given their chance and they have not failed to disappoint, Henri deserves his chance too.
Henri Lansbury won’t disappoint, certainly not in the heart, passion and commitment to his club department, you won’t see him being overtaken by a referee! Not unless it’s up the M4 of course. ;)
Arsenal need to do all they can to reassure him that his future is with us, be assured, many a club would love to have him in their side, just ask Delia…. ;)
That’s it for today, have a good Friday…..
