Wenger to deliver Fergie knockout-blow in transfer market again?

Maybe it's the lack of trophies over the last few seasons, maybe it's the continued threat of a player exodus at the Emirates Stadium, whatever the reason it seems Arsene Wenger decided that he needed to get busy early in the summer transfer window.

The Arsenal manager has already nipped in and delivered a blow to United's hopes of capturing Welsh starlet Aaron Ramsey. Coming on that back of that news it's now being reported that the Gunners' boss is targeting another player who has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford this, Roque Santa Cruz.

The Reds made something of a hash of it when announcing that Ramsey was all but signed up, hopefully, United won't make the same mistake again and they will surprise the Red Army with some quality additions to the squad.

As far as we know United haven't made their move for Cruz so far, which could mean that Fergie doesn't fancy the Paraguayan. Recent speculation suggests that the Reds will not make any moves until after Euro 2008 by which time we will know what is happening regarding the future of Ronaldo. It is to be hoped that United are not waiting to find out how much money could potentially be raised from the sale of Ronaldo - that scenario could prove to be a costly mistake.

United fans do not want to see the back of Ronaldo - a world-record fee wouldn't be enough to replace him, added to which prices for transfer targets would then rocket with selling clubs trying to cash-in knowing that the club had just received a windfall.


  1. I know there are a lot of rumours about this but Santa Cruz seems a very un-Wenger signing.

    Playing in the premier league (therefore inflated price), history of injuries, closer to the finished article than an up and coming prospect.

    These aren't things Wenger goes for in a player. I just can't see it happening

  2. Have to agree that he is nearer the finished article than enger would normally go for but that is exactly what was missing from Arsenal last season... experience to see them over the finishing line!

    ...we'll see if this new mix of old n new can work for wenger this time


  3. Agree with what the other commentators said. SantaCruz doesn't seem to be a Wenger-type but then Arsenal need experience and Wenger might be required to change his policies.
