No 'Old Ladies' For The Gunners

No 'Old Ladies' For The Gunners

Arsene Wenger has admitted that it is unlikely that he will join the pack of vultures circling round the Stad Del Alpi

For Arsene Wenger their wages are just too high and he is not willing to break the pay structure he has set in place.

'We cannot afford to do it which is why we are not overly concerned with what is going on at Juventus,' said Wenger.

'It is very unlikely we will make a move for the players because the wages are too high for us.

'What has happened in Italy will inevitably disturb the market because you have a lot of players who come on to the market but don't forget the players of Juventus are very well paid and not many clubs in the world can afford to pay this kind of wages.'

So that Buffon out the window then.

Its just excuses from wenger for not signing established talent. How can the wages be too high when you consider that henry is on over 100K a week & buffon is on something like 50k a week at Juve. He said yesterday that he will bring in maybe 1 more player but definately no more than 2, so its going to be another long season in the league where we keep hearing the same old tired excuse about how we are getting better & will be much better in march than we are in say october or november. Another season of fighting spurs for a champions league place is ahead.

at this stage of the transfer season I'd take any comment with a large pinch of salt. double/triple talk is rife. best to take a wait and see approach.

I wouldn't read too much onto anything Arsene says with this. He has already approached Buffon, and this was confirmed by Juve themselves. I am sure he is watching things very closely.....

Buffon would be a great signing but he would have to sit on the bench for most of next season as Lehmann is our number 1. Although we could play him in certain competitions who knows. Also he would need to consider taking a massive wage cut. But in football u neva know. Maybe a deal could materialse but i think Buffon will stay in Italy going to AC Milan to replace Dida..

Why would he have to take a pay cut? As far as I'm aware, Buffon in on 50,000 a week at Juventus and Campbell has just left us who got that amount and its likely Cole will leave also leaving behind a 70,000 a week pay cheque.
