Wenger: Would You Like To See His Contract?

Wenger: Would You Like To See His Contract?

After a national news paper (I won't give it the column inches it doesn't deserve) falsely claimed that Lionel Messi said that Cesc Fabregas was on his way to the Nou Camp, Arsene Wenger reiterated his stance that Cesc was his player, and he alone would be deciding on the players future, and that future still lies in the N5 area.

Despite Messi not coming even close to saying that Fabregas was going to sign for Barca (All he said was that he was part of the Barca family and would return there one day ... which is hardly new news) the paper ran the title 'Messi will never play in the Premiership, and Cesc is on his way', prompting questions directed as the Arsenal gaffer from reporters in attendance at AW's traditional pre-match press conference yesterday.

In true Wenger style, the Frenchman replied to the rumours,

'Do you want to see the length of his contract?' retorted Wenger when asked if Cesc was to sign for Barca

'Players at the end of contracts can sign where they want but, with the players who are under contract, we decide on their future. We are not under any financial need, we are well managed and that gives you one luxury in that you can decide about the future of your players.'

'This team is on the way up and we don't work for four or five years with young players, stand up for them and let them come through and then, when they are ready to perform, sell them. That would be irresponsible.

'Some people are specialists at making players unhappy. I cannot stop them talking in Spain. But all of the players who have left here wanted to return.'

This kind of thing really doesn't merit much discussion, both player and manager have firmly stood their ground and reiterated that Cesc is here for the foreseeable future, but Wenger's opener is a classic that needs to be recorded.

Can the English media barring a few papers be more stupid? There have been a million categorical clarifications from Cesc himself on his future and yet one of the first questions a drunk hack asks Wenger every week is about Cesc's future. The hacks would love to make this transfer happen this summer but they waste their energy for nothing.

When asked if he'd play in the Prem one day, Messi said ""Will I play in the Premier League one day? I have said that I want to be at Barcelona for life," he said. "I will be here for as long as they want me. I owe Barcelona more than for giving me a chance - I owe them for changing my life." If that's what he says about Barca, Cesc should feel the same about Arsenal too. So now, the best player in the world, shut up!!

Sorry boys, he's gone (to my delight)... The lure of trophies, lower taxes and his home country will prove too much this summer I fear! Thrashing Chelsea anyone?! Oh no, you don't understand how that feels - COYS!
