After the news today that Barcelona are willing to dispose of Alexandr Hleb for a measly £3m if they can find anyone willing to take him off their hands, it seems that he is not the only ex-Arsenal player that is finding it hard to find a job outside North London!
Mathieu Flamini left Arsenal at the same time as Hleb, but on a free transfer because he refused to sign a new contract, but his “dream” move to AC Milan hasn’t been quite the step up he believed it was at the time.
He has been mostly consigned to the reserves bench, behind Gennaro Gattuso, Andrea Pirlo and Massimo Ambrosini, and it looks like the Italian giants have decided he will never be good enough to step in their boots.
The latest rumours say that both Aston Villa and Newcastle are interested in bringing the cut-price midfielder back to the Premiership for just £6m, but a good haggler could probably get both Flamini and Hleb for £7m for the pair!
Do you reckon they both may be regretting leaving the Emirates before they were established stars? Haha!
