"Well, yeah... I was sittin' here eatin' my muffin and drinkin' my coffee when I had what alcoholics refer to as 'a moment of clarity...'"
Let’s try and get our heads around this. Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri are under contract to Arsenal Football Club. Neither player has made an official transfer request. Barcelona have both, informally and officially made an offer for the services of Fabregas; the price offered has been deemed unacceptable, therefore until such time an offer is made that Arsenal feel is appropriate Fabregas remains under contract. As regards Nasri, having not put in a transfer request, Arsenal, until such time as someone makes a financial bid that the Club find acceptable, retain the player under the terms of his contract.
EVERYTHINGTHING ELSE IS TOTTALLY AND UTTERLY SECONDARY TO THESE FACTS
It really is that simple.
Bendtner and Denilson have expressed a desire to leave the club. Denilson is on loan and Bendtner remains under contract until Arsenal feel that there is an acceptable offer made or feel that they would prefer to dispense with the players services.
CUT AND DRIED, NO?
Almunia, Diaby and Eboue have not been mentioned in any official terms as to their futures. Rosicky has been.
AGAIN, IT’S EASY ISN’T IT?
The players that have been signed have been signed. Speculation exists over a number of potential signings based on little else but conjecture.
IT DOESN’T GET MORE UNINTERESTING THAN THAT.
