Song’s been told he can leave and Bendtner should be off soon, whilst Robin has gone.
Morning. So Van Persie has been sold to Man Utd for £22 million rising to £24 million. In some ways an excellent deal, to get such money for a player with injury records like Robins, whilst at the same time the desperate hatred of selling to United. If we go on and have a fantastic season, obviously it’ll be great business and if not it’s appalling. Time will tell.
In other news Barcelona’s interest in Alex Song is alive and kicking. The player has been told he can leave and this continues with our stance all summer that we want a proper defensive midfielder. Should we get over £15million for him I think this is great business – AS LONG as we reinvest it. I don’t buy into the he’s a great player… most professional footballers can chip balls over the top to strikers and there’s much more talented players to do this, than Alex Song. A proper defensive minded midfielder will help us more than him.
Bendtner should also be leaving in the next week as he finalizes a move away.
Finally, good luck to our new captain Thomas Vermaelen.
