Arsene Wenger has made it clear that the Financial Fair Play is now dead in the water and EUFA simply cannot stop the moneybags clubs spending what they like in the transfer market. Witness how much clubs like Man City, Man United and Liverpool have spent lately.
Can Arsenal even get our targets this Summer? by Galen
It would not be the first time that a player took a cut in pay to join Arsenal, with that apparently being the situation when Mikel Arteta joined the Gunners from Everton to get Champions League Football. With James Milner currently earning around £80,000 a week at Man City and being offered a new contract by his club, that may have to be the case again if he is to join Arsenal this summer.
There is a very interesting Arsenal rumour this morning from the respected English newspaper The Guardian, that states that Arsene Wenger is set to take advantage of James Milner’s unhappy status at moneybags Manchester City. The midfielder is unhappy at being forced to play in wide positions for City and is looking for a club that wlll allow him to play in a more central role as he was promised when he signed for the moneybags club.
Arsene Wenger has always been prudent with Arsenal’s finances and supported the idea of Financial Fair Play ever since the idea was first aired, but now it has been implemented Wenger wants gigantic fines imposed to deter clubs from breaking the rules again and again.
