Old horse face heading back to the Premier League?
Arsène Wenger will protect Arsenal’s title challenge against further injury by air-lifting Herita Ilunga from West Ham and then heading over to Real Madrid to evacuate none other than Martin Keown’s old mucker, Ruud van Nistelrooy. (Guardian)
This is an astonishing piece of news, but could it possibly be accurate? Yes perhaps another striking option could go down a treat but would Arsene Wenger really bring in a player who is 33 years of age and is not a player we Arsenal fans like in fact we pretty much despise him for a great many reasons, not least for his antics against us on various occasions.
There is no doubting the Dutchman knows where the back of the net is and still does even after all these years but even though we could get him relatively cheaply, some reports suggest £4m would do it, I still don’t see this happening, never in a month of Sundays.
Yes Robin Van Persie is out for a few weeks but we have goals coming from all over the place right now and can still call upon Eduardo, Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela and hell why could also use Sanchez Watt so I don’t think that Wenger will be pursuing the former Man United man.
