      It is of course all speculation, and if there is such a clause in some contracts it may have come in as a result of us getting Ozil. The theory there is that Tottenham were outraged that as a result of their selling Bale (a weakening of their side of course) Arsenal were able to get Ozil (a strengthening of Arsenal’s side. Clearly both deals were negotiated by Real Madrid at the same time, and, the argument is, Tottenham want that sort of situation never to happen again to Arsenal’s benefit.
      Certainly at the time I think Tottenham supporters were in some dismay that their team was being weakened and Arsenal’s strengthened as part of the whole three way transfer arrangement.

    I don’t know if there is such a clause but we got Özil one day after Bale went to Madrid.

    Who is Vasquez and in what way could he improve our team?

    Silly question, some might say, but surely the improvement of the team is the whole point.

    As aw said many times, he would not buy anyone who was no better than who already have.

    Another observation, in that we have heard absolutely nothing from or about ue since the Europa final.

      Don’t blame Untold for these names – we’re just having a laugh at the media that report this nonsense. Remember on average only 3% of all transfer rumours come to fruition.

    The other thing about this is that in relation to the Bale and Ozil transfers is that there is a certain amount of confidentiality in negotiations, (yes even in the modern 24 hour news age), and this would imply that before you bought or sold any player to any club, you’d have to have a list of who they were potentially buying and selling and who to. Can’t see that it would ever be that formal … on the other hand we all know certain clubs do deal with each other on a regular basis … Liverpool and Southampton spring to mind … but I suspect that’s probably more about personalities within the clubs and the way players are developed in common …

    Back in 2001, Lazio signed Gaizka Mendieta for £28 million pounds from Valencia. There was a clause that Lazio must not sell Mendieta back to Spain in two years (practically, it was anti-Barcelona and anti-Real clause) or they’d have to pay additional £7.5m. Mendieta had been one of the best European midfielders for two years and people at Lazio didn’t think anything would possibly go wrong so they accepted the clause.

    However…

    Lazio got into a major financial trouble after their owner’s milk business started to collapse. To make things worse, Mendieta turned out to be (and to this date, I still see him that way) the worst pound for pound transfer ever made. So, they loaned him back to Spain after just one year, to Barcelona, with an option to buy so they could cut their losses. Valencia didn’t like it and insisted that Lazio would have to pay a £7.5m heavy penalty for returning Mendieta back to Spain within two years. Two clubs reached an agreement, however, so that Lazio could loan Mendieta to Barcelona. Barcelona didn’t use their option as Mendieta went to Middlesbrough on another loan before making a permanent move to Boro on a free transfer.

    Also, it was not a transfer but Liverpool inserted anti-Arsenal clause in Roberto Firmino’s contract as his release clause was set at £98m for all clubs but Arsenal.

    Really I think the technical team for arsenal is crazy, We they sign Fraser and Zayech are enough in the midfield why are they interested in Vasquez.

    GuunerB, although I would clearly put less faith in “reports” than you seem to, you sound like a top scout with your intimate knowledge of footballers and your informed observation of the apparent failure of Arsenal scouts. Albeit that your judgement of Arsenal’s scouts is based on flimsy rumours, I would nevertheless be intrigued to know which top clubs you’ve worked with thus enabling you to reach such conclusions about both our scouts and the players you mention.

    What a revelation to learn the anti-Arsenal drusade is not only limited to the PGMO and the media. But also extend to some of Arsenal 5 top PL rival club sides who apparently are doing everything in the books unlawfully that includes going into secret accord with other top League club sides locally and externally to stop Arsenal from signing any players at some local and external top League club sides who they want to sign and who have no direct link with any of Arsenal rivals 5 PL clubs. What a classic subversion and undermine of Arsenal by some of the 5 top PL club sides which us Gooners are witnessing to our disbelieves and amassements that’s obviously intended to stop Arsenal from winning the PL title again after they last won it in 2003-2004 season.

    Notwithstanding this wicked action against Arsenal, the current Arsenal hierarchy bosses must sit up to not accept this unlawful player signings ban act cleverly imposed on Arsenal restricting them to sign the players they want to sign by some of their top PL rival club sides. Notably by Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and possibly Man City. For, I think Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd are known to have carried out players transfer deals between themselves to the extent of even seen a swap transfer deal happened just a season and half ago between Arsenal and Man Utd. And a top PL club Chelsea did facilitate an Arsenal top quality player signing in Aubameyang from BVB to go through by signing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal. From the looks of things, Arsenal cannot take Gareth Bale on loan this summer if they want to take him because of the illegal accord between Real Madrid and Tottenham that will scuttle such a transfer loan deal.

    In the main time, why wouldn’t Arsenal if they want explore the possibility of another swap deal between Arsenal and Man Utd to happen this summer that will see our 22 PL goals scorer last season Aubameyang swapped for Romelu Lukaku of Man Utd in a 2 players swap plus cash deal paid to Arsenal by Man Utd if it’s true they want Auba’ this summer. But no payment by Arsenal should be paid by them to Man Utd because Aubameyang is currently ahead of Lukaku in regular League goals scoring and transfer market fee payable. Right now at this stage in the transfer market, I think Auba’ is worth £70m to sign which can go up to £80m around the transfer deadline day.

    Arsenal need more money in their summer transfer kitty in addition to the money they have in it to conclude their signings of Kieran Tierney, William Saliba, Wilfred Saha and still do a senior top quality striker signing this summer. Getting £20m plus Lukaku from Man Utd should help Arsenal moving close to sign the trio of Tierney, Saliba and Zaha after they might have gotten Lukaku plus cash on a transfer swap deal. I think with these four deals, if Arsenal conclude them this summer, they should be done in the transfer market for the incoming transfers this summer. What should remain for them to conclude as well this summer is the outgoing transfers from the club.

    @Samuel,
    At 4.32 and again at 7.09.
    The repetitive forwarding of your latest post is beginning to pall.
    I shall ask Tony to block your offerings should you persist.

    Let’s try translating SAA’s last paragraph into Swedish-ish:

    A very intriguing premise , if it be true . And even more audacious if it is fake. Someone has put a lot of thought in this one.
    Unlike some of the above posters , who have apparently not used their brains.

    A man kills a deer and takes it home to cook for dinner.
    Both he and his wife decide that they won’t tell the kids what kind of
    meat it is, but will give them a clue and let them guess.
    The kids were eager to know what the meat was on their plates, so they
    begged their dad for a clue.
    The dad said, “Well, it’s what mummy calls me sometimes.”

    The little girl screams to her brother, “Don’t eat it!
    It’s an ass hole!

    @Brickfield That was vintage and gave me my 7 chuckles. Refreshing diversion from the usual

    @Samuel If your posts weren’t so long in the first place, would go unnoticed. Better to add a line or two rather than 4 paragraphs

    If this stories were true, it certainly shows the how anti Arsenal a number of clubs are. Still, I’d rather go for Ziyech who seems keen on coming to Arsenal

    Or Tony, maybe Tottenham haven’t weren’t able to buy players last year because arsenal put anti-tottenham clause somewhere. No?
