In the news today:
The Daily Mail appear convinced that Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas will seal a £34m move to Barcelona in the coming weeks. To counteract this, Wenger has supposedly reserved some of that income to make a substantial bid for Real Madrid forward, Karim Benzema, 24.
Sky Sports pundit, Guillem Balague revealed on Twitter a few weeks ago that Benzema had in fact told the club he wished to stay, however if Real do wish to sell the Frenchman, Arsenal could be the obvious destination.
The Daily Mail print today: ‘Benzema is the man Wenger wants to help Arsenal forget about the pending departures of their midfield duo [Nasri and Fabregas] and he is willing to smash the club’s transfer record to do it.
The Arsenal boss knows losing Fabregas and Nasri will have a detrimental effect on supporter morale, although he will make one last bid to keep Nasri with the offer of a £100,000-a-week contract.’
