It is being reported that Real Madrid reject Mariano Diaz has no interest in playing for Arsenal and wants to stay and fight for a place at the Bernabeu.
Well, thank goodness for that, we covered the apparent link here and made it clear we did not think he would be good enough for Arsenal.
The media have twisted it that he has no interest in playing under Unai Emery and somehow make it look like that is some sort of insult to us, who cares?
Arsenal may not be in the best shape right now and if Diaz would rather stay at a club that does not want him then that is his choice but to see it as some sort of negative reflection of Emery and Arsenal is stretching it somewhat.
The media have enough ammunition to use against Arsenal that they do not need to take something that is actually positive for us and turn it into a negative, I mean, are they already bored with the Laurent Koscielny fiasco?
Diaz was never likely to happen and if it did it would have made no sense and as far as I am concerned if he has no interest in us then thank goodness for that because we should never have had an interest in him in the first place.
