Very brief post today because I’m hungover.
David Luiz has moved to PSG for £50m. A quite incredible transfer. What the hell is going on there? I mean, I know he’s a good player, but he’s not a £50m player in my eyes. Also shows you how arrogant PSG are. They’ve been done for FFP and now they’re spunking outlandish fees on players. Crazy. Shows Cheslea are serious about it though. They’re selling before buying to avoid what’s gone the way of Manchester City.
Talk of Cesc has progressed, with The Telegraph saying we’d only consider activating the buy back clause should a rival in our league move for him. The priorities lie elsewhere for me.
Carlos Vela seems quite keen on staying in Spain. It’d be a real odd move if Arsenal brought him back. However, it’s clear he’s a good wide man with pace and trickery. It’s not often Arsene goes back in for a player after they’ve bombed with us… but whatever, we need proper wide players and he’s performed.
Lord Harris is bundling the pressure on the manager.
“We want to win the Premier League and the Champions League,”
“If we buy two or three players then I think we can. We want to win. We don’t want to be second, we don’t want to be third and we don’t want to be fourth. We will support Arsene with the players he wants to buy. He has always been encouraged to spend.”
I think Arsenal are in the process of trying the break the transfer record preWorld Cup. So watch this space.
However, let’s be clear here, Arsenal aren’t winning the Champions League if we sign 3 players. We had depth problems before we lost 6 players. So it’s only logical to suggest we need to replace the outgoing bodies, then layer in 3 top, top signings.
We’ll see though.
Have a great day!
