There have been many crazy transfer rumours this summer, but the latest two to come out of the woodwork are really stretching the imagination of Arsenal fans. One is a free transfer and one is a quoted at being totally out of Arsenal’s reach moneywise.
Let’s start with Thomas Vermaelen. Let me make it clear there is not a hope in hellof him rejoining Arsenal! The Mirror though reports: Shock reports in Spain claim Arsenal are interested in re-signing their former defender Thomas Vermaelen from Barcelona.
Catalan newspaper Sport say the Blaugrana are currently weighing up an offer from the Gunners for the 30-year-old defender.
Yeah Yeah Yeah, and did you see that porker flying over Trafalgar Square? I know Wenger has done some ridiculous defender deals (Silvestre anyone?) but I refuse to believe he will bring back an injury-riddled replacement for the injured Per Mertesacker!
The second one is Antoine Griezmann from Atletico, Olivier Giroud’s strike partner in the France team that got to the Final of the Euros. That annoying Italian “journalist” Emanuele Giulianelli reckons Le Prof will pay the 100m Euros to bring Griezmann to the Emirates “when” Atletico Madrid get Diego Costa from Chelsea. In his dreams!
When Wenger talks about the crazy inflated prices of 100m Euros for ANYONE, he really means it is crazy, and there is not a hope in hell that Le Prof will ever pay an amount like that for one player, no matter how good he thinks he is.
So please, let us just hope that Arsene gets Mahrez. Le Prof’s “cheeky grin” tells me that this is a banker!
