Nasrigate: Wenger Quotes Weeks Ago Aired In France
Arsene Wenger has addressed Arsenal's legion of supporters in France on numerous subjects but a question mark hovers over when an interview with TF1 took place...
The national French TV channel has run an exclusive with the beleaguered Arsenal boss focusing upon Cesc Fabregas' departure, Samir Nasri's future and intended recruitment amongst other subjects.
During the interview, a relaxed Wenger shows no sign of the pressured fatigue he has revealed in recent days and at the outset, clearly states:
'Both Manchester clubs are on his tail.'
This is the first time that the rags have been linked with Nasri in weeks. Despite that Wenger then goes on to announce that a transfer deal to somewhere, for Nasri is:
'Far, far, far from being done.'
Wenger is evidently under pressure to sell in order to recruit and with no less than THREE Nasri agents haggling for readies out of a transfer to join City's dambuster attackers, he faces the dilemma of losing out on what looks to be desperately needed funds if City decide to pull the plug.
This correspondent's betting is on the French interview having taken place last month.
