All we have been hearing this summer is news on Nasri and Fabregas wanting to leave Arsenal, but for a change today, we are hearing of a player who wants to stay at Arsenal and is fully committed to the cause. These are the kind of players we want at the club!
Andrei Arshavin has been the subject of transfer speculation this summer, with reports suggesting he could be moving to Real Madrid but the 30-year-old has quashed that suggestion and instead wants to stay at the Emirates.
“They are things invented on the internet,” he told the Evening Standard. “More than one time I have said that this season I will play in Arsenal colours. I would not play for Real Madrid for all the money in the world. For me, Real is a complete taboo because I’m an admirer of Barcelona.”
Arshavin did not have the best of seasons last term but hopefully this coming season he will be back on form and could step up if Fabregas and Nasri leave.
