Bad news for Arsenal fans. Arsene Wenger has revealed during his press conference this morning that David Villa is unlikely to join Arsenal during the transfer window as the Catalans aren’t prepared to sell their star striker.
In spite of Villa being keen to join Arsenal and Wenger being keen on the player, the Gunners boss said
‘Barcelona do not want to sell David Villa, they have made that very, very clear.’
David Villa’s wife gave birth to their third child last night, a boy named Luca, which may complicate any possible move.
Given the way that Arsenal have undertaken negotiations in the past though I wouldn’t completely rule it out until midnight on Thursday.
At the same conference Wenger also ruled out signing David Beckham who has been training with the Arsenal team.
