Morning Gooners. So today news has broke about our infamous striker being set to make a move to the Italian shores this week. There have been constant negotiations over his departure from Arsenal but now it seems the Dane is on his way out.
The striker has made it clear he does not see his future with the club, whilst Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have confirmed he does not figure in their plans. The problem, as we all know, lies in Bendtner’s inflated ego. He obviously thinks he’s one of the best strikers the football world has yet to see and therefore is reluctant to move to just any club. The Dane stated,
“It is not an option to stay at Arsenal, that is something neither I nor Arsenal desire. I am expecting that the club issue will be resolved before the transfer window is closed. There are serious negotiations going on.”
The striker admitted that he already has rejected some offers adding:
“Yes, I have. From the start, I had three requirements. In case they are not fulfilled, I have rejected them since they are not interesting at this point.” Obviously not making life easier for himself or Arsenal!
Milan are expected to step up their efforts to land our misfit in a swap with centre-back Philippe Mexes. Frankly, the deal sounds just plush if it’s true! The Italians are ready to offload the French star this week, and reports suggest that his £80k per week salary will be settled with a pay off deal that Milan are prepared to offer. So there you go, Arsenal board, a quality signing for a want-away striker and by the looks of it, his weekly wages will be lowered. Win win.
