Cartoon of the Day: El Mundo Deportivo

Arsenal waits for a letter* by Cesc.

Rosell: The more cards* we play, the more possibilities for us of winning the game.

*”Letter” and “card” in Spanish are said both “carta”

Cartoon of the Day: Sport

It’s true that the “Big Clásico” is on November 28th, but for me the circus starts some days before…on November 25th I’ll mess with Messi, on 26th I’ll make Pep angry, then I hope that on 27th all the culés will hate me, so on 28th I’ll have the whole Camp Nou exactly like I want it to be.

IBRA DECIDES TO STAY

His agent, clear: “He has a contract to fulfil and he wants to fulfil it 100%.”

Difficult to sell. European big clubs can’t afford to pay his transfer nor his salary.

He will be one more player among the others. Barça wants to “recover” him, like they did with Eto’o in Guardiola’s first year.

Bojan feels ready to success definitively: “I’m not a kid any more“.

Madrid: Raúl and Guti, another problem for Florentino. They will leave the club through the back door. They are waiting to be paid the money the club must pay them and the club telling them that they are definitively deleted.

THE SUMMER BOMB:

MOU WANTS IBRA!

The Portuguese doesn’t want Benzema and he already made the Swede do his best in Inter.

Raiola, Barça’s striker’s agent, promotes a Kaká-Ibra swap.

Wenger accepts to negotiate Cesc’s transfer.

Özil and Gourcuff, the other options.

Xavi: “Arsenal delaying the Inevitable”

Xavi: “Arsenal delaying the Inevitable”

The arrival of Fabregas back to the Camp Nou is “inevitable” says Barcelona midfield Xavi Hernández (30), according to an interview given to English sporting tabloid Daily Express. Having told his fellow Catalans that he wants a move back to his boyhood club during their successful World Cup campaign this summer, Xavi thinks it only a matter of time before Arsenal give in to the desires of their captain. ”Arsenal need to understand they are only delaying the inevitable: if we don’t manage to get his signature this season then Arsenal only really have him on loan for a year.”
