Arsenal prepare for another Barcelona raid?

There has been some very disturbing news for many Arsenal fans as rumours have emerged in the Sunday Mirror which claim we could lose Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona in the summer as they eye up the Belgian.

Barca are already scouting potential replacements and they have stepped up their checks on Belgium star Vermaelen.

The Belgian has been hit and miss this season and has come under intense scrutiny for some of his performances, but he is still a top player and he would be a massive miss if we lost him.

And it means we could face another scenario in which we lose one of our very best players to the Spanish side, just like we lost Alex Song and Cesc Fabregas in previous windows.

Although Vermaelen has shown no desire to leave the club in the near future, he may find it very difficult to turn down a big money move to the Cam Nou and we could see the back of him if a big actually comes in.

However, we will be very reluctant to sell and will probably make him stay as he has been tied down to a long-term contract at the club.

  • tell them we have no desire to do business with them as they say to us all the time. Or 60 million and they can have him. Or 40 million and their young striker we wanted. Take it or leave it and piss off!!!!

    When will Arsenal Players learn DO NOT Leave For Barca. YOU will go from 1st choice 11 to a bit player. EVEN Cesc is sitting on the bench then playing. Song as well and Hleb had to go out on loan to get playing time at barca. EVEN Henry went from key front man to a left winger with Eto and Ronaldinho the first choice ahead of him. WHY do Arsenal players want to go to Barca you may get a trophy but the joy of being on he bench when your team wins vs being a key player and being the one responsible for winning it are 2 different things. IF deal is done with Barca this summer it should be for Arsenal to bring Cesc back to his real home where he is appreciated he may be a Catalonian by birth but it was being a Gunner that made him a Man he spent more time in North London in his life then in Spain. And he has already said he is really not happy on the bench.
