Adios to Emmanuel Adebayor and Alexander Hleb this summer? It certainly sounds as though both are set to leave, according to the Daily Mail, who claim that Barcelona have held more talks with Arsenal in order to secure the signatures of the talented yet disloyal pair.
Poor Arsene Wenger. He plucks players from obscurity, gives them a football and then shows them what to do with it. They then strut their stuff for the Gunners, realise they’re quite good and want a shedload of cash that the club can’t afford to pay them.
Barca vice-president Marc Ingla spent yesterday in London holding talks with Arsenal, who have so far stood firm in their desire not to sell and are quietly confident that striker Adebayor can still be convinced to sign a new deal.
However, Barcelona president Joan Laporta is particularly keen to have big name signings in place before the club election on July 6.
Arsenal fans, are you resigned to losing this pair in the summer and will they be a great loss? Last season was where Adebayor really broke through, and it seems weird that he’s so willing to jump ship at this stage in his career. Should these guys be showing more loyalty?
