If David Bentley's transfer to the spuds goes through today for £17 million quid then Arsenal can expect to cash in thanks to the sell on clause in the player's contract. It has been rumoured to be 50% of the fee, if this is true then we'll be getting a whopping £8.5 million! One can't help but feel that this is a hell of a lot of money for a player who has not even become an England regular and has hardly been a consistent performer at the highest level as yet. I look forward to calling the rather arrogant and annoying jumped up little shit a c**t next season when he 'plays' for the spuds.
It's very cunning of the club to have secured such lucrative sell on clauses in all the contracts of the young players that we've sold over the years, one recent example of a big dividend payout was following Fabrice Muamba's move to Bolton from Birmingham city. Long may these payouts continue!
Elsewhere Wenger has hinted just how highly he rates young Jack Wilshere, it has also been hinted on Arsenal.com that Diaby is to take 'centre stage' this season- providing a big hint that no more big names will be arriving in the central midfield slot, Fran Merida was named as one of UEFA's future stars following some good work at the U-19 championships, Gilberto has also had some sensible stuff to say on greedy short sighted footballers, while Arseblogger reckons it's the proper pre season from tonight.
William Gallas has also spoken out and apologised for some of his rather poor behaviour as club captain last season, while Gallas has also been backed by Arsene- personally I think he deserves another chance and hopefully if we support him he will repay our faith. Over and out Gooners.
