Arsenal in trouble after Real Madrid transfer ban?

While Arsenal fans might feel that the end of the January transfer window is already coming up too fast, Arsene Wenger could be forgiven for wishing it was already over, because of the news that the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid have been slapped with a transfer ban by football’s governing body FIFA.

Although this might help Arsenal to get our transfer targets in the summer and next January, it could spell real danger for the Gunners this month as the ban does not come into place until after this current window. So Madrid have notice and any signings they are thinking about will have to be completed in the next two weeks.

The Sun is reporting that this ban will see Madrid embark on the biggest spending spree in football history of around £250 million. If the report is right about their targets and the Spanish club is successful then the Gunners have nothing to worry about as it will actually weaken our Premier League rivals, with Man City striker Sergio Aguero, Man United keeper David De Gea and Chelsea forward Eden Hazard on the list.

However, these three clubs are all big spenders themselves and can afford to turn down massive offers for their stars. So can Arsenal, of course, but the question is will we? Madrid have been linked with moves for Arsenal stars like Alexis Sanchez, Aaron Ramsey and others in the past and if they fail in their other bids and come knocking on our door, would our money mad owner and board really turn them down?

      Since when do Madrid buy our players ? They either get them from Tottenham or United lol. And do the authors ever read what they write before posting an article ? Sanchez was a Barca player and is happy in England, he ain’t moving to Madrid, period.
