So it’s Madrid, sort of

Jose Antonio Reyes got his dream move to Madrid, sort of. Atletico Madrid, not Real Madrid as he really wished for. For a significant loss, Arsenal have finally unloaded one of the biggest crybabies to play professional football for a long time.

Reyes had a medical yesterday and has signed a four-year deal; the transfer fee was around 6m pounds.

To create some political cover, the Spanish international winger now says that he had always wanted to join Atletico Madrid. Sure. And holding out hope for Real Madrid was what? And that crybaby radio prank where Reyes was begging to join Real?

"Real wanted me right up until the last moment but Atletico made a great effort to get me."-Reyes

That quote above means Real have likely signed Chelsea’s Arjan Robben and Reyes is a playmaker in more ways than football.

An Arsenal statement said:

"Everyone at Arsenal thanks Jose Antonio for his contribution to the club and wishes him the best of luck for the future"

Or it said

“Diapers are cheaper in Madrid”

–I don’t recall which.

Good ridduance, altho I'd like to see a dead weight dragging arsenal down I hated watching this little punk play football. Hopefully Robben will go soon too, he disgusts me.
