It was reported the other day that the Arsenal loanee keeper Wojciech Szczesny had been in talks with Juventus over a move to the Serie A Champions, and was supposed to have agreed to sign a 4million a year contract if the Old Lady could agree a transfer fee with the Gunners.
But now his agent David Manasseh has denied there is any truth in the rumour, and there will be no decision made on the Pole’s future until he has had a meeting with Arsene Wenger about his status at the club. “There is still no agreement with Juventus,” Manasseh was quoted as saying.
“Szczesny has yet to talk with Wenger, who has been confirmed as Arsenal coach for the next two years.”
After two years on loan at Roma, Szczesny must now return to Arsenal, where has still has another two years remaining on his contract, so he would not be allowed to talk to Juventus, or any other club, until a transfer fee is agreed with the Gunners.
With David Ospina angling for a move away this summer, Wenger may decide to bring Szczesny back as backup to Petr Cech, but after two seasons of first team football in Roma , the Pole is unlikely to relish a return to the bench.
Maybe Wenger could promise him the right to play in all the Europa League and League Cup games?
