When will the crazy completely baseless Arsenal rumours linking us with a move to try and bring Ousmane Dembele to Arsenal ever stop? We had to put up with them all summer, and despite Barcelona and the player denying it every single time, they still just keep on coming, even after the transfer window shut for the first half of the season.
As if Barca would just ‘borrow’ us a player that they paid 100 million for just a year ago! And as for ‘with an option to buy? Don’t make me laugh! But with the interlull here to bore us once again even Guilleme Blague is trotting out the same old story, and even he said that Arsenal didn’t make an approach. He said: “The only approach from Arsenal was to get him on loan, with an option to buy. That was an intermediate, not directly from Arsenal.”
“And again, Barcelona did not listen to it. Barcelona don’t want to let him go in January either. They believe that they can get something out of him.
“They think he has the potential to make a difference like he did at the start of the season.”
What intermediate, what rubbish! Barca denied the rumours every time they were mentioned. Even Dembele himself denied all rumours during the summer. He said: Dembele said: “I’m staying at Barcelona and I’m ready to play the Spanish Super Cup.”
So Why Oh Why does this idiotic rumour keep coming up? As if Arsenal would spend even 70 million on anyone, never mind 100 million. Let’s get ourselves down offa that cloud can we?
