Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have ordered a mixture of the strong stuff from the top shelf to help them quell their nerves this afternoon, following reports that suggested one of their stars could leave.
The Express states Barcelona are confident of landing Aaron Ramsey in a £50m deal this summer, with the Welsh midfielder excited at the possibility of playing with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and company.
Ramsey has excelled at Arsenal since making the move to North London from Cardiff City as a youngster, particularly after fighting back from a horrific leg-break to become a star-man in Arsenal’s midfield- with many touting him as a future captain.
However, Barcelona’s interest poses problems for Arsenal and fans are groaning as they remember the names they’ve lost to the Catalan giants in the past- including Thierry Henry, Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song and Alexander Hleb.
Our landlord believes Ramsey may reject the advances of Barcelona but Arsenal must show they can challenge the elite by winning the Premier League, whilst also showing positive performances against Barca in the next stage of the Champions League.
Arsenal fans, will Ramsey move to Barcelona? Let us know in the comments below!
