It isn’t a mystery that he wants Chamakh…
Marouane Chamakh and Arsenal are apparently close to a transfer deal even though Arsene Wenger is not confirming anything. Because Chamakh will be able to take a free transfer at the end of this season he can go ahead and sign with someone else, and if Arsenal is smart they’ll get this thing done and go ahead and tell the world.
Why? Well, first off, if you want the Premier League to know that you mean business then you need to go ahead and make a statement and sign Chamakh right now. Waiting and denying everything only makes you look “stupidly mysterious” because everyone will think you just can’t get it together. Not the best idea.
Plus, if you’re Bordeaux you REALLY want to know what’s going on because you have no time to spare in figuring out what you’re going to do when Chamakh is gone. If you wait for even a second every good player will be off the market in the blink of an eye.
With the speculation swirling about other teams that he could be talking to it might be time for someone to clamp down on him or tell him the deal’s off the table.
Chamakh already created a pretty big distraction for Bordeaux by even talking about this before the end of the season. Bordeaux is 0-2-2 since the beginning of January (when alot of this talk came up)…don’t you think this has something to do with it?
Bordeaux WAS sailing away in Ligue 1…now they’re only 3 points up on Montpellier. Soccer is a team sport, but Bordeaux fans wouldn’t be wrong to blame most of this slump on the Chamakh transfer talk that he started knowing full-well that he was a “free agent” at the end of the year. Save it for then Maurrie.
I hope Arsenal gets him because it will crank up the volume on the Permier League next season, but right now I want this to get done before Chamakh destroys Bordeaux.
