Wenger Set For Baptista Talks
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is to meet with Julio Baptista's agent next week to discuss the player's future.
Baptist's Arsenal future has been cast into doubt of late as the striker struggles to find some form.
Wenger is also set for talks with Real Madrid over the fee of any potential transfer.
The fact that Wenger is to meet Baptista's agent would suggest that he intends to sign him. Despite that the Arsenal manager insists that no decision has been made.
'Nothing is decided," said Arsène Wenger at his pre-match press conference. "I will meet his agents next week and Real Madrid a bit later.
"I won't tell you now what I will say to his agents. If I do that now I can cancel the meeting!
'I can talk to the player [of course] but whether he stays or goes I need to talk to the agent. If he stays we talk about what price if he goes then we talk about how do we do it.'
Wenger also confirmed that Reyes is unlikely to return to Arsenal in the summer.
"Reyes coming back can happen," said Wenger. "I have nothing against that but Reyes does not want to come back to English football, he prefers to stay in Spain.'
