Arsenal to sell more players?

Today has seen a number of sites report that Wenger has said that Arsenal need to make a profit in the transfer market for the next 17 years to fund the new stadium.

“The strategy of the club is to sell every year and to buy less expensive players,”

“We manage at Arsenal to maintain all our football ambitions – national and European – while having to free up – for 17 more years – an annual surplus of £24m to pay for our stadium.”

“The club’s strategy is to favour the policy of youngsters ahead of stars and to count on the collective quality of our game.”

Reported the News of the World.

We don’t know if there is any truth to this story but if there is it would be worrying news for the club, having to sell players every year can only do harm to Wengers plans of building a team.

In the next few days more should become clear if this is nothing more than a made up story then i’m sure Wenger will quickly put the record straight.

  1. IF THERE IS ANY TRUTH IN IT THAN IT’S VERY WORRYING NEWS INDEED,ITS JUST NOT FAIR THAT OTHERS ARE BUYING ALL THE PLAYERS THEY WANT AND WE ONLY HAVE TO DEVELOP PLAYERS.THIS MEANS THAT WE’LL HAVE YOUNGSTERS IN OUR TEAM EVERY SEASON. WHEN ARE WE GOING TO HAVE A FULLY MATURED TEAM WHICH WOULD BE ABLE TO WIN TROPHIES FOR US AND HELP YOUNGSTERS TO DEVELOP. WHAT EVER THE TRUTH IS ONLY MR ARSENE(NAL) WENGER KNOWS BEST AND HE SURELY DOES.

  3. LOL!! Wenger’s a genius. He’ll make the world think he’s broke if it’s in his interest. He’ll make the world think he’s loaded if he wants.

    Arsene has decided that it’s important for the world to think that Arsenal needs to make money in the transfer market right now. Next week, the situation might change and he’ll say the opposite.

    The “cunning fox” can convince the world of whatever he wants, whenever he wants. I can just imagine him telling Zenit, “We can only afford to pay 16 for Andrei. You’ve seen the papers!”
