Di Maria will be joining Arsenal by Monday once Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid has been finalized according to skysports. Arsenal have been linked to the Argentine in the last couple of days with reports claiming the midfielder will be allowed to leave Real Madrid in order for Real to recoup some of the money they had spent on acquiring Gareth Bale from Tottenham.
Although the player did come out and say he is going to stay at Real Madrid and fight for his chances, Skysports are claiming he has been asked by Real Madrid to join leave and he will be announced as an Arsenal player as soon as possible. Though on the surface, the Sky sports reports seem to be unrealistic considering it is rare seeing players been forced out of clubs unless they are doing so under financial crisis but if you consider the history of Real Madrid and how they get rid of players, it is very likely.
Hunterlaar, Van Dar Vaart, Sneijder and a host of other players never wanted to leave Real Madrid but ended up been sold cos Madrid needed them sold to financial moves for other “bigger targets”.
With just few hours to the end of the transfer window, it won’t be long before we know if the reports are true or not.
