“If I find the right quality I will do something. I love a bargain, who doesn’t love a bargain?”
Those are Wenger’s words and he may have seen his bargain buy already. Aldrien Rabiot declaration to leave the Paris Saint Germain is not farfetched and only few may have the effrontery to ask where actually is his destination, when he declared to his club president that a loan move was all he wanted as a Christmas gift.
Surely, you know the rest of the story but what is on the scene as we speak is that Wenger is ready to test the French champion’s resolve with a £15million bid.
Quite an audacious one for a 20-year-old whose contract expires in the summer of 2019. Surely, his club’s President Nasser Al-Khelaifi could afford to keep him against his wish but the PSG fans are making matters worse. They have resorted to booing the lad, which implies that things can only get worse for him at the club.
It is quite certain that Laurent Blanc favours Marco Verratti ahead of him, so the decision to leave is not out of place.
The Telegraph reports today that Wenger wants to play him alongside new signing Mohamed Elneny. Who knows? That may finally be the panacea to the injury malady that awaits us sometime in February and March – about the same period when our Premier League title campaign capitulated in the 2013/2014 season.
Only time will tell.
