The BBC’s football correspondent has just confirmed that Ba will not be joining Arsenal on loan. Chelsea’s manager Jose Mourinho has stopped the deal as he didn’t want to do business with a rival club.
Is it not a bit late to decide this! Has Mourinho just pulled a masterstroke and left Arsenal without a striker?
So Arsene Wenger’s search for a striker continues
Surely it is too late now to find another one.
UPDATE – The BBC now saying deal fell apart as Arsenal wouldn’t pay the money Chelsea wanted for Ba.
