Mind-blowing XI Arsenal Could Have If Arsene Wenger Signed All The Players He Tried To: Lionel Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo Lineup Ahead Of Yaya Toure

LM: Gareth Bale

Bale is the world’s most expensive footballer, having joined Real Madrid from Spurs for around £85m in September 2013. The Welshman is now a world class attacking midfielder, but that has not always been his position. In 2006, Wenger decided against moving for Bale, because ‘he didn’t need another left-back’!

CF: Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo was apparently so close to signing for Arsenal in 2003 that he even had a Gunners shirt printed with ‘Ronaldo 9’ on the back. However, he ended up at rivals Manchester United, after Carlos Queiroz convinced him to move to Old Trafford.

CF: Lionel Messi

As we mentioned earlier, Messi was targeted by Wenger at the same time Fabregas came to Arsenal. It has been reported that the Barcelona and Argentina legend would have signed for the Gunners had they bought him a flat in London.
