This is one headline we would all love to wake up and see but we all know it will never happen, yesterday Man City tried the unthinkable with a 100 million pound bid for the Brazilian star. It looks like the deal will not happen but how close did they come to landing one of the best.
Not because of his chance to win anything like the champions league and not because of there reputation around the world but because the simply have no limit to what they can spend.
But what does all this mean for Arsenal, Is this another sign that Arsenal need to change there transfer policy and go for the big name players and could it mean the Arsenal board need to sell up to one of of the billionaires that want the club.
Or does it have no relevance to Arsenal at all and do they keep going as they are now. I’m sure with time Wenger’s kids will come good and with few more signings like Nasri along the way Arsenal will be able to compete, but with more and more clubs becoming mega rich I am slightly worried that Arsenal will not be able to keep pace with the old and new rich boys.
Of course the plan is once the stadium is paid off Arsenal will be OK but could it be too late by then or am I just worried over nothing right now im not so sure.
