As per the latest reports, Arsenal are ready to shelve the plans of bringing Cesc Fabregas back to Emirates and instead, they are planning to make a mega bid for AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.
Reportedly, Cesc Fabregas is not in the plans of the new Barcelona manager and is expected to leave the Catalan club in Summer. It is understood that Cesc wants Arsenal return and now disappointed that the gunners have not shown the same interest in re-signing him. So it looks like other top premier league clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and City will participate in a bidding war to sign the Spanish playmaker.
Arsenal already have the likes of Jack Wilshere, Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Cazorla. Wenger will never do anything that may stop the progress of the youngsters like Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere. So, opting out of Cesc deal looks like a sensible decision as signing a Striker and a defensive midfielder is more important than adding another play maker to the squad.
Is Mari Ballotelli the right man for Arsenal? We certainly think so. Other than his controversial off the pitch behaviors, he has all the required attributes to be a success at any top club. Wenger has enough experience and man management skills to convert him to a disciplined player. As reported earliar, PUMA may pay a part of the transfer fee too, which is an added bonus.
Arsenal should act fast and sign him up asap as his price may go up after the World Cup in Brazil.
