Prediction – the stupidest Arsenal rumours to expect in the summer
One of the most exciting, frustrating and possibly boring periods in English football is the summer transfer window, it is when all fans yearn to know what players may possibly be joining their beloved club and us Arsenal fans are no different.
We pick up every little titbit that the press throws our way, we get all excited because so and so may be joining us, then we get frustrated when it does not happen and in the end, we just get bored with all the bullshit.
And the worst thing about it all is that the gossip starts really early and even though we should know better, we end up believing half the rubbish being published and boy, is there some rubbish.
Here is a little list of rumours that I am absolutely certain will pop up and that I know in advance will never happen.
Never ever going to happen, for one, he will never take the sort of wage cut he would have to accept to rejoin us and secondly, where would he fit in? We do not need him, it is as simple as that.
Same as with Sanchez, his wages are simply too high and how would he be received? This would not be like the Sol Campbell episode. he would cost a fortune and never ever be truly considered a Gunner.
Absolutely no way, he will cost in excess of £100 Million and while I would love this Juventus playmaker to join us, it just is not going to happen, the money is not there for this sort of purchase.
This rumour has not yet happened but trust me, someone, somewhere will come out with this whopper, probably the Daily Star or Daily Mail. Do I really even need to write why this one will never happen?
A few years ago this one may have been realistic but not now, we are ok up front and do we really want to sign a 30-year-old up front? We all know this won’t happen but rest assured, it will be a rumour at some point.
There are more for sure, but take my word for it, the above players at some point will be linked with a move to the Emirates.
Do not believe a word of it.
