Arsenal could lose another player to Barcelona by BA
What is it with Barcelona? If they want a player, why do they release him only to try to re-sign him a couple of years later? The Spanish club were after Cesc Fabregas for years before they finally prised him away from Arsenal last year. This summer, Barcelona are going to try to take back another player they released from their youth system, Ignasi Miquel.
The 19-year old defender will be offered the chance to join Barcelona B, according to Talksport. They are preparing a bid of around £300,00, but I expect Arsene Wenger will tell them where to stick it. Wenger would prefer to keep the player but knows that his chances will be limited at the Emirates, especially now Johan Djourou is staying.
Wenger will let Miquel go on loan in order to continue his progress, and Gus Poyet’s Brighton seems to be the lucky club. Miquel did get some time on the pitch for Arsenal last season, appearing in nine games for the Gunners. Poyet has proven himself a good coach and has brought on his young players very well.
We cannot afford to lose our good young players, or the Arsenal philosophy will fail.
