So after all that speculation it turns out Mr. Wenger never actually offered cold hard cash for the goal-scoring Spaniard Fernando Torres
“I rate Torres and I believe he had quite a good start after a spell when he was in and out. Since he is back on a regular basis, he is extremely dangerous. We have known about him for a long time, but I never tried to sign him. We were interested when he first started at Atletico Madrid, but we never made any offer.” (various)
I am a big fan of the Frenchman and he is clearly one of the finest managers in recent history, but could this have been a mistake by the Gunners boss? Yes he rarely makes them so he is entitled to a blunder every now and then. Can Arsenal fans name any other screw up’s?
