WILLIAM GALLAS has been offered a staggering 3 million pounds tax-free a season three-year deal by Fenerbahce of Turkey.

France international Gallas, 32, is a free agent after being released by Arsenal, who would not give him a long-term deal.

Wealthy Fenerbahce, who lost out in last season’s title race to unfancied Bursaspor, have already been knocked out of the Champions League by Swiss minnows Young Boys Berne.

But the Turks, desperate to get their season back on track, are pressing the veteran centre-back to make up his mind quickly about their bumper offer. (Sunday People)

Given the lack of defensive options currently available to Arsene Wenger one wonders if it made sense to not give William Gallas the kind of contract he was after. Turkish side Fenerbache have decided to offer the Frenchman a very large pay packet in the hopes of securing the 32 year old and apparently the former Chelsea man is very likely to accept the deal.

Even though the centre back did have a penchant for eccentric behaviour he was still a very solid customer and a player who 9 times out of 10 performed admirably. Clearly Wenger has his policy on players over 30 and as such felt he could not offer a deal that Gallas was after so this was the inevitable end to his Emirates career.
