Arsene Wenger was talking about the Arsenal transfer situation in the pre-match press conference yesterday. Well to be more accurate, he was trying to say as little as possible about it under a barrage of questions from the press pack.
One thing the Frenchman did say, however, was that he thought that some transfers could become even more complicated, with more people involved, once the football agency is deregulated. He also spoke about how he thinks that discretion is the best way to approach any transfer talks, obviously with the ongoing Raheem Sterling situation firmly in mind.
But Wenger is used to having to deal with this sort of thing and I do not think that this will be the Frenchman´s biggest problem by any means during the upcoming summer transfer window. The changing of the FFP rules by Uefa which will once again allow mega rich owners to pump shedloads of cash at their club could be disastrous for the Gunners, as our own man at the top Stan Kroenke has proved himself reluctant to spend a single cent of his own money on Arsenal.
As well as the likes of Chelsea and Man City, this summer could see many clubs around Europe pulling out all the stops and going for the big money players. We all know that Wenger does not like to pay over the odds or get involved in bidding wars so are we going to have to settle for the players that the big spenders do not want?
