The Sun says Barcelona are looking to spend £50million on Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey…
The Sun says Barcelona have watched Ramsey ten times this season, and it will be 11 when they come to see him play in the FA Cup final.
This is, of course, how glorious, greedy and charmless Barcelona conduct their transfer business: they bombard the media with praise for their target, get current players to big-up the object of desire and prattle on about Barca being ‘more than a club’. When they do eventually make a bid everyone is pretty much resigned to the outcome.
Right now we’re just at the point where Barcelona begin to turn the player’s head.
But if you Gooners want really shocking news, here’s a photo of Abou Diaby playing football – table football at the Arsenal Foundation’s annual charity fundraiser.
Well, it’s a start.
