Now I know that we are going through a boring international beak, but the latest Arsenal transfer rumour seems like a desperate attempt to fill the back pages of the tabloids.
The Express are reporting that the Gunners are going to bring in the brilliant Petr Cech from Chelsea in January, and the only basis I can see for them to suggest this is because Thibault Courtois said that IF he was Cech he would leave Chelsea to play first team football.
There has been no indication from Cech that he is unhappy at Stamford Bridge (although that MAY be true considering he is now a reserve) but he has become a legend at the Blues and probably won’t mind earning his excellent salary of £120,000 per-week while waiting to see if his younger replacement gets an injury to get him some time on the pitch.
Who in their right mind would believe that Wenger would match that salary to bring Cech to Arsenal, and you would have to be even crazier to think that Jose Mourinho would let the Czech international move to a direct Premier League rival?
Add to this the fact that Wenger is totally convinced that Wojciech Szczesny is set for a long and illustrious career, and he has only just brought in the highly talented David Ospina to challenge the Pole for the Number One spot once he is fit and ready.
My conclusion just has to be that this is a ridiculous rumour that will quickly be forgotten about as soon as the serious football begins when Arsenal face Man United next week….
Does ANYONE think this rumour could possibly be true?
