Barcelona-Arsenal Transfer Dealings Reversed, Arsenal Interested in Barca Midfielder

Heading to The BPL?

In a reverse of recent transfer history, it is now Arsenal whom are interested in a Barcelona player. The player in question is Barcelona’s very own midfielder Ibrahim Afellay

The Daily Star Sunday (Spain) has reported that Pep Guardiola is prepared to let go of the Dutch flop after just 5 months with the Catalunya giants. Afellay moved to Barcelona from Dutch side PSV for a fee of 3 million pounds and his contract is set to expire in the summer.

The interest from the London giants has prompted a possible part exchange deal for the former Barcelona academy graduate Cesc Fabregas, although all doubts about that potential move were cast aside after an Arsenal insider stepped out and said:

Afellay is a young and gifted player but he won’t be part of a deal for Cesc going to Barca.

Afellay has found trying into a midfield boasting the likes of world beaters such as Andres Iniesta and their very own Xavi Hernandez to an uphill climb, so he is searching for more first team football elsewhere. To date, Afellay has only had 1 La Liga game to his name, and (wait for it) a grand total of 12 minutes of Champions League football to his name this season.

Wenger is set to bring him in to replace the likes of Rosicky and Diaby to add some added flair to their style of passing football.

  1. Arsenal will win the Premier League Title this season

  2. Joe

    Afellay has 4 years left on his contract, it doesn’t expire in the summer.. Great research

  3. dutchgunner

    would love to see affelay at arsenal, but not as a part trade for cesc.

  4. CodedG

    I think Afellay is ok but shouldn’t be part of Cesc deal

  5. Daniel Marino

    I think Arsen’s head is working correctly. I hope he is doing fine.

    Needs to send all like Denilson, Diaby, Rosicky, Almunia, Scillaci, Bendetner. These are must go. In addition Cesc can decide if he says he wants to go against the advice of Tores, let him Go.

    Bring new additions.
    1. Afelay.
    2. Best Goal keeper.
    3. Metszacker. The german Central defense.

    With the above and back with left wing Villa and Right wing Teo. we will samash even the the 7 man wall of defense of Man Utd.

  6. Arsene wenger we re tired of dis ur i wil buy attitude,bring out cash nd buy quality players dat worth nd stop putn hopes in d hrt of arsenal fans at d end ntin.stop being stingy

  7. Soji

    Evry one knows wenger wont win anything again dis season,he is a joker,he wnt buy exprncd players.He shud b sacked.

  8. Miyachi is comn next summer,wellington,lansbury,frimpong etc all we need is wc keeper,leftback and a centreback.Miyachi is better dan affelay

  9. ewa jerome odu
