Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has once again spoken about the precarious financial situation in football being exacerbated by the spending of sugar daddy clubs. Perhaps his dealings with Malaga in trying to sign Santi Cazorla over the last few days have reinforced his belief.
The Sun newspaper carries quotes today (their origin is unclear, therefore the time at which he made them might well be too) reiterating the economics graduate`s belief that a storm is coming in football finance.
'We consider ourselves in a privileged position because we have a massive income,' Wenger said. 'But overall we are not mega-rich because we do not have unlimited resources.
'A club can buy players like PSG has done or Manchester City or Chelsea, with unlimited resources, but overall football suffers.
'Look at the activity on the transfer market since the start of the summer. PSG are ambitious and they have resources and that's it. We talk always about the same things.
'Europe at the moment is like the Titanic but we live in football like nothing matters.
'More than ever we have to run our club in a strict way because it looks like everybody suffers in Europe. I would be surprised if football is not touched by it at some stage.
'If you look at debt in football across Europe at the moment, it is quite massive and we have to be responsible. We have to be ambitious but also make sure we are not getting in trouble financially.
'It is difficult for us because the wages in some other clubs are very high. But of course our players quite rightly compare themselves to the players of the other clubs.'
