Melo for Eboue Swap Deal No Brainer
There is plenty of mis-truths being thrown around over Melo. The Italian press are stating that Juventus are in talks to buy the Brazilian midfielder and thus thwarting Arsenal’s attempts at luring Melo to the Emirates.
But once again in step Fiorentina, and they dismiss all these rumours and skulduggery. There is one thing to say about Fiorentina, they are acting as gentlemen, and also putting Arsenal fans at ease with each press release.
They have once again categorically stated that Arsenal are the only club with whom they are in talks with and that Arsene Wenger has asked to speak to the President of the club to discuss matter further. Fiorentina are interested in Eboue that is certain. Wenger must realise that £15million plus Eboue is a price worth paying if it means we can buy the midfield enforcer everyone has been craving for.
Some people think we are crazy to let Eboue go, personally I would drive him to Florence and drop Adebayor off at the San Siro. Eboue offers us very little constructively going forward, he runs and runs like Forest Gump with no end product. I am sick and tired of his pathetic histrionics every time he falls over. To even compare him to Ray Parlour is an insult. This is oen great way of getting rid of the troublesome Ivorian.
Of course Felipe Melo has stated he is a happy at Fiorentina and wants to stay at the club that has helped become such a sought after player. Why is saying this? Money! If a player asks for a transfer, then he will not receive some of the transfer fee. The other reason is that if a player indicates he wants to leave, and then he doesn’t, i.e. Adebayor last summer, then the fans turn on him.
It appears that Arsenal are serious about acquiring Felipe Melo, we should conclude this transfer this week.
