This former Emirates captain is set to leave the club in the very near future!
William Gallas will be allowed to join Juventus for just £3million.
People Sport exclusively revealed last week that Juve boss Claudio Ranieri wants to sign the disgraced former Arsenal captain in January – and the clubs met last week to thrash out a deal.
Arsene Wenger has given his blessing, despite public claims to the contrary, after Gallas was stripped of the captaincy for an outrageous attack on his team-mates. Arsenal would rather Gallas went to Turin than join a Premier League rival. (The People)
According to this source Arsene is happy to let this deal take place and many must feel that the day has come for the north London club to cut its losses on the former Chelsea man, not for his performances on the field but for his demeanour off it or in the case of the St Andrews saga last season, on the field but after the whistle. William Gallas has been a reasonably steady performer since his move from Stamford Bridge two and a bit years ago but to be honest I am sure that Wenger will be thinking that his failings as a captain or indeed as a presence in the dressing room he is in many ways just not worth the aggravation. Obviously the fact that Ranieri was the man who brought the former Marseille man to the Premier League in the first place has leant more weight to this potential move but either way I would be very surprised if the Arsenal number 10 is at the club for much longer. Do Gunners fans think it’s time Arsene let Gallas head for the exit?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
