Mathieu Debuchy ‘We’re In Talks, Arsenal Is A Top Club’

7 years ago

One step at a time the Mathieu Debuchy exit from St.James’ Park is being played out in public.

The latest seeing the player use Instagram (see below) to put out a message saying, “Farewell Brazil, Hello Arsenal.”

While when speaking to L’Equipe the Newcastle full-back said;

“Nothing has happened yet and for now we’re in talks, Arsenal is a top club, we’ll see what happens.”

This followed on from last night when after the final whistle against Germany, Debuchy told a reporter from TF1 Television, “Yes I will be joining Arsenal for next season.”

A fee of around £8m is generally speculated, an amount which does represent a basic profit for Mike Ashley of £2m or so but which would mean another of our very few quality players would be leaving.

Meanwhile the likes of Gabriel Obertan and Sylvain Marveaux are left of the shop window with ‘for sale’ stickers on and next to no chance of them leaving.

Any Newcastle fan who sees it as any kind of a good thing that Mathieu Debuchy appears definitely to be leaving, is sadly mistaken.
