Get ready to be happy Arsenal fans. Although I will not actually believe it is really true until it is finally all done and dusted, it looks like the Gunners will finally get rid of the blank firing, self publicist that is Nicklas Bendtner.
Maybe the not so great Dane has finally realised that the biggest clubs in the world are not desperate to sign him after all, or maybe he finally feels a bit guilty about trousering over £50,000 a week from Arsenal only to run us down any chance he gets, although I doubt it.
According to Skysports, Arsenal have accepted transfer bids for the 25-year old striker, and he is due to pick which one of them he wants to play for. He still seems to be suffering from delusions of grandeur, though, so I am concerned that he will find all of the clubs beneath him, while I am fairly sure that none of them will match the wages he gets from Arsenal, something he claims to care nothing about, even though he turned down a perfectly good move to the Bundesliga with Hamburg in January.
Bendy said, “Arsenal have agreed with five clubs, so now it is up to me to make a choice.
“I will make that choice within the next 14 days. They are all good clubs. It’s a hugely important choice I’m faced with. I must go where I am wanted. As a footballer, there is only one thing that can make you happy, playing time.
“Will it be good for me to go to a big club where I risk the bench? No, I’d rather go somewhere where the club is located just below the top where I can play every week.
“I can take a step back to take three forward.”
In that case, Nick, I know the perfect place for you. The supporters also have delusions of grandeur, it is called Tottenham. They even have another big useless striker who has got a chip on his shoulder about Arsenal. I’m sure you and Adebayor will be very happy together, although I’m not so sure about the spuds fans.
Let’s hope that Bentner does accept the offer of one of these club, because that will make it nearly £250,000 a week in wages we have saved so far this summer.
