Wenger & Co Tell Barcelona To Do One!

Wenger & Co Tell Barcelona To Do One!

Arsenal Football Club spoke publicly & officially today regarding Barcelona's interest in Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas, and in no uncertain terms, they told the Spanish giants to piss right off.

The Arsenal board has shown true class through out the whole sordid affair in which the La Liga Champions had every man and his dog trying to turn Cesc's head without actually having the balls to put in an off .... so the Gunners kept quiet.

Today however, the Arsenal board put to bed the speculation all together, thus honouring Fabregas's wishes to have his future sorted out before the world cup. And it is, You're staying with us son.

In an official statement Arsenal said, 'Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is under contract with the Club until the summer of 2015. He is a highly-valued member of the team and part of our future plans.

'We have followed recent speculation linking Cesc with a move away from the Club but as there has never been any official approach for him, only two informal exchanges, in which we made it abundantly clear that we have no interest in transferring Cesc, we have refrained from publicly passing comment. However, yesterday evening we received an offer from Barcelona for Cesc and in response, we immediately and resolutely told them once again that we have no intention of selling our captain.

'To be clear, we will not make any kind of counterproposal or enter into any discussion. Barcelona have publicly stated that they will respect our position and we expect that they will keep their word.'


Brilliant, the instant Barca put in a formal offer ... BAM ... Ivan the terrible pounces. 'Do one!' he shouts. It almost feels like it's all we've been waiting for. I can just imagine Arsene, Gazidis and Peter Hill-Wood sat in the board room sniggering like school children, letting speculation grow, and letting Barca dig themselves into a deep deep hole. All the time knowing exactly what the out come would be.

Well played fellers, well played.

That's admirable and optimistic Rocky but it's just the first step in what will become a very long, drawn out summer i predict.

Nope. I just don't see it. That statement will stop Barca (for this summer at least). It's too strong to allow a transfer now, they know if they sold him they would be crucified by the Arsenal fans.

Joan had better go to Las Ramblas with a sign reading "need money for players please help" 29 Million is a JOKE.

According to the UEFA rules, Barcelona were not allowed to make a formal approach/offer until 1st June, despite being allowed to make unofficial soundings. Every man and his dog would also appear to be Cesc Fabregas himself, as well as his father who is his agent. It appears that you will enjoy next season with a disgruntled and disappointed player leading your ranks.

As the guy from the Mr.Sparkle advert in the Simpson's would say: "Hello american investor, you have chosen wisely".
