Still no Arsenal bid for Mata|Nasri agrees to stay?
After weeks of doom and gloom, things are finally looking up at the club. For all the talk of us losing 2 of our best players this summer, we may actually keep both and even add more.
It is understood that while Samir Nasri has turned down a new offer with an increased pay, he is prepared to see out his contract and leave on a free next season.
A lot of us have said we’ll prefer he be sold now if he wouldn’t sign a new contract rather than see him leave for free. But we should realise that none of us knows more about the right time to sell players than the manager.
Le Boss would “normally” take the cash, but this time he’s not willing to sell. Arsene is an intelligent man and He definitely has a good reason for not wanting to let Nasri leave yet.
Maybe He thinks He can convince Nasri when the season starts, who knows? What we do know however is Wenger is doing what He thinks is right for the future of the club.
While The Star made an extremely confident claim that Valencia winger Juan Mata “will sign for Arsenal in the next 24 hours”, AS were quick to quash the report by getting an official statement from Valencia which revealed that there has been no bid for him.
Valencia however confirmed that Arsenal is very interested in Mata and they will negotiate, something they won’t do with the Spuds.
The Star ran the story last night, with most English and Spanish newspapers confirming it. They cannot all be wrong. I think we should expect something positive in the coming days.
There is still no news on Cescgate; so it seems we have moved from almost losing two key players to keeping both and adding one world class player to our ranks. Happy times!!
If Mata does sign, it will be interesting to see where he plays. Some fans even think he has been brought in to replace one of our want-away stars. Better Nasri than Cesc in my opinion.
There you have it gooners! Have fun and hope for the best news. We are due one after all the negativity.
Mata, Cesc, Nasri, RVP,Arshavin and that “top defender” in the same team? Bring the Premier League Title already!
Let us know what you think.
