Juve Really Are Interested In Flam

Not so long ago I penned an article suggesting that Arsene Wenger may be hiding something with regards to Mathieu Flamini and possible interest from Juventus.

I claimed that Wenger was acting a little shifty after he claimed that a representative from Juventus had called confirming that reports suggesting they were interested in snapping up the tough tackling midfielder were untrue. I offered that seing as the Flamster was almost out of contract that Juve had no reason to speak to Le Boss regarding the player at all.

Well now, miraculously, Juventus have hinted that they would like to take The Flanimal to Italy.

'Arsenal tried to sell Flamini to Birmingham and today Wenger will be happy that he wasn't able to do so,' Secco told Tuttosport.

'At the moment, we haven't made an offer, we are thinking about that.'

So ..... sinister shinanigans? or complete coincidence?

It's all looking rather ominous for Flamini. I think we're gunna see speculation speed up now we're out of the title race. And with our track record with injuries, he could well have played his last game for the Gunners :(

If he really wants to go, then so be it, not much we can do about it. It will leave a very bitter taste, and however much i'd like to be a big man and wish him well, i won't be able to. That would be a real nasty kick when we are down and he will well know that. I hope his conscience prevails. I for one would rather play ball with Fabregas than any other midfielder in the world right now.

I hope not rocky he's really shown what he can do this season. Lets just hope wenger keeps ahold of him.

I imagine that last season we were eagerly trying to move Flamini on as he only had a year left and wasn't signing a new contract. How does Flamini feel about things now? He is out of contract so he can go easily enough. Juventus or anyone else could have made him an offer anytime from January onwards. In fact I would be very surprised if he hasn't already had more than one good offer for his services long before now. We can also make it worth his while to stay if he and we are inclined to. But good though he has been this season he isn't irreplaceable.

I''m bound to be wrong having said this, but I think everyone's taking this too seriously. All of it is probably media nonsence. Wenger wants him to stay, Flams says he wants to stay, one of his best mates Cesc Fabregas has been practically begging him to stay, I just can't see him walking away from here. He owes Wenger a lot, and since when has a player's career come to life after leaving Arsenal? Perhaps Bentley is the only example, because look at poor Thierry now. And going back to him, we were all *****-scared about Henry not signing, and he gave no indication he wanted to stay, but did in the end. I think Flams is playing the same game, only deep down, we all know he's gonna put pen to paper

Given that Italian stadiums are practically empty and Serie A is generally suffering in status at the moment, Flam would be stupid to leave the excitement of the PL. The only reason to leave England would be fear of having your leg broken.

super_gooner - I felt exactly the same way a few weeks back. However, a lot of time has passed without any finalisation, and the longer it takes, the lesser the likelihood of Flamini signing a deal. We should not hold it against him if he wants to move on elsewhere for more money, coz he has deserved it with his performances this season. If another club can reward him with what his true worth (in his view), then I will wish him well. He has been an excellent professional throughout his time at the club. I hope he signs a new deal.

I reall hope he doesn't leave. I used to be a huge Flamini basher but he's really stepped up and proved to be a key player for us if we're to succeed. It's been said before, he's not the most skilled player to wear the red and white of Arsenal, but he brings ferocity and drive to this team which has been seriously lacking for some time.

For some strange reason, I do feel he'll stay.. I really don't think that he'll leave!

I personally don't think he will leave. I think his agents are just hanging out for more money. But if anyone in our squad deserves a hefty payrise, it's Flamini. When he doesn't play, we seem to lose. Mind you, if he does decide to move abroad, how will Diarra be feeling?

I think he will leave. Love to see him stay as he is a real motivator and pro but alas he has not signed yet and his agent is holding out for more. Wenger has sent out the right signals saying lets keep this team together, lets hope Mat doesnt do a Anelka and then realise what he has at Arsenal when its too late.

He's been offered a 'take it or leave it' deal from le Boss.. don't forget what he did to Marseille, he's a very astute chap (could've been a lawyer) looks like he may do the same thing to us unfortunately.
