Arsenal Consider Shocking £9m Deal to Bring Former Star Back!

Ex Gunner plotting Emirates return?

Alexander HLEB

The Rumour

Barcelona’s unhappy midfielder Alex Hleb is being linked with a sensational return to Arsenal.

Hleb wants out of the Nou Camp.

“I am right in the best years of my career and I do not want to spend those years on bench,” he said.

The news Hleb is looking for a move will be also be welcomed by a number of Premier League clubs after his three impressive seasons with Arsenal.

In a bizarre twist, even Gunners boss Arsene Wenger might be interested in taking Hleb back for a lot less than the £11.8m he sold him for, says the Daily Star Sunday.

The Analysis

I will try to deal with this rumour in as succinct a manner as possible. This will not happen!

Hleb engineered his way out of the Emirates in search of stardom and ended up warming the bench as his Barcelona side managed very well without him. The Belorussian then angered many with some random attacks he aimed at Arsenal‘s wage ceiling policy and seemed to enjoy continually talking about how the club was heading nowhere.

Apart from anything else where the hell would Hleb fit into the team now anyway? The club may well need some defensive signings, such as the recently acquired Thomas Vermaelen, but they don’t appear to need a player of Hleb’s type as they have many similar players already!

The Likelihood

Hleb back to Arsenal: Nope!
