Arsene in Spain, but not to sell Fabregas

One thing you can say about the Spanish press: they never give it a rest. A report appeared yesterday claiming Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was in negotiations for a potential transfer sending Cesc Fabregas to Real Madrid for, get this, Jose Antonio Reyes and Julio Baptista.

Wenger was actually meeting with the directors of Atletico Madrid. And for something much more prized: Fernando Torres. Wrong side of town boys.
To make the deal work, apparently Arsenal wants to pay cash and send Atletico players. Reyes could figure into the negotiation. For such a talisman, I think Arsenal are going to have to fork over the cash. They don’t really have a viable asset to grease the deal. If the Gunners are to have Torres, in my opinion, they are going to have to pay in full unless Atletico would consider Tomas Rocisky in exchange, we would still be talking a deal with over 20m pounds in cash.

I think you are wide of the mark here.

Its more likely Arsene is meeting with Atletico to try to offload Reyes.

no no no, well wide of the mark. this meeting was obviously regarding reyes. i am convinced wenger will not bring in a striker this summer and as for talk of offloading rosicky you had better be having a giraffe cos he has shown has shown he is class and just needs a proper run in the side uninterupted by niggling injuries

Do you really think Arsene Wenger would travel all the way to Spain to offload an unhappy player? My experience is that a manager travels to bring one in, dont you think?

There's no reason why it would be Torres at all. Wenger wouldn't be interested. Too much money, too much competetion, no chance at all.

If he were meeting with Atletico it's certainly regarding Reyes. Torres is just bad journalism...it's inevitable that we would be linked. Also, anything over £20 million would be extortion, the guys nothing special, and certainly not what Arsenal need.

You heard it here first - he was there trying to negotiate a deal for Robinho. Real asked for a swap involving Fabregas and AW said no...

Bullshit its loads of crap we have 5 strikers already and why would he give away Rosicky??????? in my opinion i think Rosicky will prove worth more than Fernando in the long term and i dont think so Fernando will like playing in epl, the game is much faster and he would obviously become like Reyes who feels homesick and have to go back after only a couple of seasons so next time post something which has facts not lies ;)

this site is rubbish! i am never coming here again due to the lies that are continually published here.

torres is not and never will be a target for arsenal. he is far too expensive for his talent

secondly rosicky is awesome. wenger and every arsenal fan knows that and he just needs to stay fit for a proper run in the side to show his true ability. we will certainly not sell him!
