Arsene Beats Chelsea, Again

Arsene Beats Chelsea, Again

It has been made known that Chelsea failed with a bid to sign Arsenal's new star, Tomas Rosicky.

This new coup makes it four players in less than a year the Wenger has signed from under Mourinho's nose. 'The Special (needs) one' also tried to capture Alex Hleb, Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott, however all four players realised the range of possibilities at Arsenal and opted for the N5 club.

Despite offering more than twice the amount Arsenal paid for the player, Dortmund, rather funnily, demanded more.

Pavel Paska has confirmed that Chelsea would not meet Borussia's demands.

"Chelsea once offered Dortmund €18 million but Borussia demanded €22 million so the deal went wrong," Paska told Sport.

I feel the world of football is becoming wise to the Chelsea spending machine, after the Blues bowed to the pressure of Lyon at the begining of the season by paying 24 million for Michael Essien despite claiming they would never pay that much.

I wonder what the odds of a Rosicky winner at Stamford Bridge next season will be?

I just can't believe a gooner could post this story, without checking his facts first. Oh to have the intelligence of a gooner. There is no denying Chelsea were interested in Rosicky. However it was Claudio Ranieri who tried to sign him in the January window in 2004. The deal fell through, because the clubs were unable to agree a fee. When Mourinho arrived in the summer, Rosicky was not in his plans and Chelsea didn't bother to go back for him. So not only are you wrong in saying Rosicky was signed under Mourinho's nose, (Jose never wanted him in the first place), but Arsenal have signed a player rejected by Chelsea as simply just not good enough. I suggest the next time you write an article, do a little homework first. You won't look so stupid then.............LOL
