Barcelona Signing Adebayor For £22mil-£25mil? Nasri Signing Officially? Clichy Signs Long Term Deal

By Bilal Zaidi

This is some crazy stuff. Turkey somehow qualified tonight with a huge victory over Croatia after the tie went into extra time. Turkey conceded at one end and scored at the other and won it after extra time from the resulting penalties. What a fantastic story and a perfect illustration of what hard work and determination can get you. They never gave up, for three games in a row where they looked to be heading out. Who knows what may be in store for them in the semi-finals.

Congratulations to Turkey and local boy Colin Kazim Richards who went to school just down the road from me. Crazy stuff.

However, the news that has been reported of our thirty goal striker Adebayor to sign for Barcelona for “£22mil – £25mil” is quite amazing. He had a great season for us and I would love for Ade to be staying but it is very difficult to tell who is misleading us all. I know from other peoples comments that many may want to just get rid of him but I would like to see what is actually going on before we start to put down our striker who did very well for us last season. Is this a trick from Barcelona to unsettle the player and the club in order to gain eventually when they buy him or is it simply the truth? It has been going on for a bit of time now and I haven’t written much on it because I don’t like writing about transfer rumours that are thrown around loosely. However, a good few papers have been picking up on the story this morning as the conclusion to this predicament seems to be edging to a final sprint in the coming weeks.

Nasri is expected to sign officially very soon since his French club have already confirmed the deal. Also, his compatriot Clichy closed off any sort of speculation regarding his potential future at another club by signing a four year deal to commit his future to Arsenal. Clichy was outstanding this year, being voted the Premiership’s best left back…unfortunately he wasn’t included in Frances European squad but both Nasri and Clichy on the French and Arsenal left wing could now become a great possibility in the near future.

Any news relating to the futures of the players mentioned will be updated as soon as we have heard of any news. Don’t miss tonight’s game between Holland and Russia and Amir Khan’s fight as well from our live video streams page.

    You are an ass. Its headlines like yours that fuel the rumours, and you well know it. I guess its not bad enough you try and make like ANR but you have to rubbish the credibility.

    @2.38 It doesn’t matter if he’s an immigrant or not, at least he doesn’t hide in anonymity when posting.

    In regards to Ade it’s more of a wait and see, there seems to be more reports of it which tends to add a bit of weight

    If anybody’s offering £22-30 million then we should happily release him. Despite his 30 goals his conversion rate is extremely poor. He is great at holding the ball but remember most of his goals were scored after scintillating displays from our midfield and any decent striker wuld still have got plenty of goals for us. I like the guy though and last season he was terrific.

    Calm down guys, its rumour season. What do we expect from the papers -all we can do is read them and comment (or laugh). The writer here is just posting his opinion like everyone else (and he’s entitled to). We’ve got Nasri and Ramsey. So far its looking good.
    Relax gooners Wenger knows…

    why sell? we need to buy not sell. I don’t get it. He scored 30 goals last year, why the hell would you want to sell him?

    the bottom line is arsenal is in driving seat when to both hleb and adebouro,personely think both players are going to stay.i dont think hleb was done him seld any favours though,i do think he wants to stay but the big mistake he made is once first time came out he was leaving he should have rebuffed it but he stayed quiet and that just increased specualtion, i think he has three agents,on ther hand adebouro came out and said that he very happy at arsenal but at the moment he is contract talks with arsena. both players are under contract with arsenal and if they both decide to leave the asking price for adebouro is going to be around 30 million or cash plus edo, and as for hleb its going be 15 million or cash plus a player, but bet this specualtion dieing not until 6 july which when elections are going to end, i afraid this all about politics and every year these presidents are up for election you are going fab, clitchy and all big names be brought up. i dont believe that any offer has made wenger hads made it claer that he is not for sale and until you sale hale been completed by wenger then just barc trying unsettle the player.

    I thought we are meant to be one of Europes biggest clubs!!! If we sell adebayor and hleb we are becoming a feeder club for the likes of real madrid and barcelona teams……. how embarassing!!
    teams are just taking our best players every summer now because we have the debt of the stadium to pay for. it looks like we are just happy to finish 2nd and 3rd in the league as long as we continue to pay large amounts off the stadium. what a joke we are becoming!!!!!!

    “stupid article. same comments as above. cant expect better from an immigrant”

    What a fantastic illustration of your own stupidity and lack of intelligence. You call me an immigrant when you have never met me or know little of my background?

    My article was simply reporting what has been said and my comments on the situation. That is why there is a “?” after the first two statements since it hasn’t been confirmed yet but only reported by several news sources. Note that the “Clichy Signs Long Term Deal” DOES NOT have a question mark after it since that is now a known fact and confirmed by our official website.

    Back to your blatantly racist comment. I will enlighten your stupid mind what the word immigrant actually means before you start throwing around your BNP bullshit on my website.

    I hope it feels nice to be told by a Paki what the ENGLISH word immigrant actually means; “someone who leaves their country to take up permanent residence in another country”

    For your personal development in life (since you clearly have the brain of a 5 year old) I can tell you that I was born in the UK and have lived here all my life. To say “can’t expect better from an immigrant” is both childish, racist and totally disrespectful to many who read this site. I am not an immigrant but even if I was, that would not halt my ability to write or do anything that you seem to think an “immigrant” could not.

    I guess you are too small of a man/woman to say what you really think as you hide behind your anonymous post.

    Before you write on my site again think about your utterly sad life and continue to hate on those that exceed your own position in society…if you still feel the urge to pass a comment on the ability of “immigrants” to do anything worthwhile then I would suggest you educate your non-developed mind to realize you are a penis.

    Good day.
