So, a jolly night at the local dance club here is the East Midlands, and back home to find that the Aubameyang saga that was on off on off on off on off and so forth ended up on. Or was that off. No it was on, he’s left for Barcelona.
The Guardian is saying “Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a Barcelona player – we’re just waiting on the official announcement.”
And in a tweet (so it must be true) “Contract agreed and now set to be signed by Aubameyang in Barcelona headquarters. Medical successfully completed.” So he didn’t have a heart condition after all.
The point of that deal is that we are no longer paying his salary and no paying him. So like Ozil he has gone for nought. Will players learn that they can’t mess with Arteta or will they learn that if they just stick to their guns (as it were) they can get away from the club on a free, meaning they can negotiate a better salary at the new club?
Apparently, the big buyers were Newcastle who got five new players.
Back with Arsenal contract agreed and now set to be signed by Aubameyang in Barcelona headquarters. Medical successfully completed
We signed centre back Auston Trusty from Colorado Rapids which is also owned by the Kroenke family, or at least it was last time I looked. He will remain with MLS club on loan until the end of the season
Jordi Osei-Tutu went from Arsenal to Rotherham on loan.
And that as far as I know is about that. If I have missed something sorry; I could have stayed in all night and not gone dancing, but dancing is better for my mental and physical health and it also meant I spent the evening with my friends, which is never a bad thing to do.
We’ll try and make sense of it all in the morning.
