David Dein may be an ex-Arsenal board member who left in acrimonious circumstances a few years ago. He is also the father of agent Darren Dein who represents, among others, Cesc Fabregas, so when Dein senior speaks about potential transfers it is worth taking in every word
So despite saying that he wanted to stay at Barca earlier this week and arranging a meeting with manager Tito Vilanova to discuss the problem it is by no means certain that the Spaniard won’t be returning to Arsenal.
Quizzed about Fabregas Dein senior said
‘You can never say never in football,’
‘I know Arsene Wenger will try to improve the squad if he can.’
I do wonder if the Fabregas is the reason why Arsenal haven’t put the money down for Jovetic. Since his transfer Fabregas has been playing in a more advanced position than he did at Arsenal and there would potentially be a clash with Jovetic who is a deep lying striker. What do you think?
