Seems like our boss has been talking to a French radio station about the current transfer window….
Currently, everyone is standing still, Everyone expects everyone else to make the first move. Everyone holds on to their cards, hoping for the major transfer. Nobody blinks until late July, early August. Then we will analyse the gaps in each team.
But I am very active on the phone.
If everyone is standing still waiting for everyone else to make their move, isn’t that the best time to sneak and a buy your players? Surely a manager like Wenger has his targets, does it really matter what everyone else is up to??
The simple answer is No!
Wenger has also reportedly spoken about the future of the three that are linked with moves away from the club and I think he gives a huge clue as to what will happen.
First he spoke about Samir Nasri:
We will do everything to keep Nasri at the club. My wish is that he stays here. If he looks back he can see that he’s come quite a long way with us, and I think there is still a bit to do. It’s the club that makes the player’s career.
Then when asked about Cesc Fabregas and Gael Clichy he said this:
Obviously we want them to stay. They are part of Arsenal and big players for the club so we want them to stay, but we will see.
I personally think that tells us a lot, the club will do everything to keep Nasri, but the other two, we’ll wait and see…
What could happen of course is that should Fabregas leave, the club will then up Nasri’s wages and everyone will be happy and the new contract will be signed.
The squad get back together this coming week so I think we can expect things to start moving fast….
Until then, we’ll just have to carry on reading the garbage that fills the newspapers each day, most of which is pure fabrication…
This morning’s papers see Arsenal in a £20 Million link to Stewart Downing which made me chuckle and a Chav link to Theo Walcott that made me spill my tea as it’s so far-fetched and Inter Milan have offered a higher price for Ricky so we are set to lose out unless Wenger goes back with a better offer…
You couldn’t make it up could you, well actually, they have, I’m sure..
Have a good day all…..
