On rather more positive news after our previous article, Arsene Wenger says he`s positive that both Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas will be Arsenal players come the start of the season.
There has been much speculation regarding our two most creative players of the 2010/11 campaign, indeed most were resigned, and had made peace with the fact that Fabregas was joining Barcelona, however the unsavoury nature of the Nasri rumours were a little harder to stomach.
However, speaking matter-of-factly for the first time on the subject, Wenger says he expects both players to stay.
'Yes [I expect Cesc to stay]. As simple as that,' said Le Prof.
'I have never spoken about what has happened behind closed doors but Cesc loves the Club. We know the Barcelona story goes on for years now and we have to close that. Now we focus on the new season, hopefully with Cesc Fabregas."
'Yes [I expect Nasri to stay as well]. There is always speculation when a player has one year to go on his contract that he might leave the club but Samir Nasri is very happy at the Club and committed to stay at the Club."
'I hope he will sign a new contract but I am not the only one to decide that.'
One would be forgiven for thinking that this could just be some big talk hoping to drive up the prices, however our admirable stance last summer proved we`re up to the task of standing up for ourselves, and certainly in the Fabregas saga, it`ll be even easier to resist this year considering Barca refuse to even match their own valuation of the player from their last attempt at signing the Spaniard.
