Which One Of These Guys Is Leaving Arsenal?
Looks like Chelski have apparently ‘broken off’ talks with Arsenal over signing wantaway left-back Ashley Cole because Arsenal want too much for the England International.
Mourinho has spoken out and said Chelsea have given Arsenal an ‘excellent offer’ and how the Gunners won’t move from their own valuation which is evidently higher.
Well Mourinho, you can f*ck yourself.
First you illegally meet one of our players, and now you want him on the cheap.
Arsenal should not and hopefully won’t lower their valuation of Cole and sell him a penny cheaper than they want for him. I don’t care if Cole wants to leave - the little b*stard isn’t going to hold the team to ransom.
What Arsenal are doing is spot on.
You cannot bow down and let Chelsea run the show. If they want Cole they’re going to have to stump up and pay full price. It isn’t an eBay auction here!
I don’t like Cole but if he stays he has two options.
He can play for his place and give it 110% when he wears the Arsenal shirt, or rot on the bench or in the reserves.
But maybe this is when Real Madrid or some other team come in and get Cole? Who knows - football is full of surprises so don’t rule anything out yet.
The other wantaway player Jose Antonio Reyes however has made better progress with his desire to return to spain and Real Madrid now appear serious to buy the left-winger.
Even though Reyes has engineered a move away from Arsenal, for some strange reason I don’t have the same hatred towards him as I do towards Cashley.
Maybe it’s because he didn’t slag Arsenal off in his biography, maybe it’s because he’s actually shown the club some respect. Or maybe it’s because even though he’s never really been happy in England he’s always given us 110% - and you can’t ask for any more than that.
Things will be much clearer when the Premiership kicks off in 9 days time…
