Arsenal Star “Wouldn’t Turn Back On” £20m Real Madrid Move!

Proof that footballer’s should not open their mouths unless they really really have to!

The Rumour

Bakary SAGNA / Lionel MESSI

ARSENAL ace Bacary Sagna admits he would be tempted by a move to Real Madrid.
According to reports in his native France, Real are weighing up a £20million bid for the 26-year-old right-back.

And Sagna, who joined the Gunners in July 2007, has refused to play down the rumours.

He said: “I am surprised by this news but I wouldn’t turn my back on it.

“I fully intended to return to pre-season training with Arsenal but I’m going to see what happens.”

The Analysis

Sometimes I just don’t understand what footballers are thinking! If these quotes are accurate and even if they are subsequently dubbed ‘out of context’, which covers a multitude of sins apparently, then this basically amounts to a player saying “Come and get me Real Madrid, because i won’t hesitate to leave Arsenal“!

Sagna has become one of the best right backs in the Premier League since leaving Auxerre and that he is being targeted by the La Liga giants at all is down to the hard work and effort of his manager and his teammates, but it seems the Frenchman is perfectly happy to try and pull an Adebayor and try to engineer a move off the back of what could be idle speculation!

The Likelihood

Sagna to Real Madrid: We haven’t heard the last of this one!
