Arsenal flop ridiculously linked with a move to Barcelona 

Shkodran Mustafi’s agent has claimed that he was in Barcelona to hold talks over the soon-to-be free defender.

Mustafi was his usual terrible self when Arsenal faced Manchester City in the Carabao Cup quarterfinal midweek.

He was at fault for Gabriel Jesus’ first goal as he left the Brazilian unmarked in the lead up to the goal.

Not that any Arsenal fan would have been surprised by that, but his agent claiming that he is wanted by Barcelona is laughable.

Emre Ozturk posted an image of himself at the famous Camp Nou, according to Sun Sports.

He captioned the image: ‘ready for meeting’.

He was then quizzed by Fox Sports about the post and he said that he was in a meeting with the Spaniards because of Mustafi and not any of his other clients.

He said via Sun Sports: “‘I’m not in Barcelona because of Yusuf Demir, but because of Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal, whom we also represent.”

Mustafi has never been a reliable player at Arsenal in the four-and-half seasons that he has spent at the club and it will be interesting to see if this one has any legs or if the agent is playing games.

    Nothing against the player, if he revive his career elsewhere, nothing like it. I am only concerned what the players do when they wear the AFC jersey. Good luck to him. Humble servant who never spoke against the club or fans, just that he could not make it at AFC.

    If the injury-prone Vermaelen could move to Nou Camp, a World Cup winner like Mustafi should be attractive to Barcelona. Besides, Barcelona are having a financial problem because they purchased expensive flops like us

    There is as much chance of this happening as there is of me running 100metres in under 10 seconds.Along with the signing of Xhaka, I feel Mustafi was the straw which broke the camel’s back as far as Wenger era at Arsenal is concerned.As far as being a World Cup winner is concerned, due to injuries to at least two centre backs he was brought into the German squad and never actually played.In any event, while I have nothing against him on a personal front, he is an example of the mediocre players who have sadly proved to be inadequate.That said I wish him and his family well in the future.

    And this flop gets gametime over Saliba. Not his decision of course.

    Good luck mustaphi. You were one of the reasons we got to the fa cup final last season. Underappreciated but it’s ok.

  6. Gerald says:

    Who is saliba? Hmmmm. It’s alright.

    IF anyone seriously thinks there is even a one percent chance of BARCA wanting this longest standing third of our three clowns, then they probably think Gazidis was also the shrewdest CEO we have ever had! Another nonsense non story !
