Arsenal Eye Another Youngster From Barca As Rossell Accuses Gunners Of Being Immoral

By on April 30, 2011

Jon Miquel Toral Harper, remember the name, as he is the latest La Masia graduate to swap the Barcelona jersey for an Arsenal jersey.

Apparently, Arsene Wenger just can’t get enough of the youngsters at Barcelona as he has managed to pries away another startlet from Catalunya. But for Barcelona’s troubles, they will be paid €500,000 in compensation to allow the transfer to go true.

The Barcelona chiefs are certainly not impressed with Arsenal’s actions as they have gone on to do what they have done in similar fashion to the transfer of Cesc Fabregas and Fran Merida.

Aged just 16 years old, he is a prospect to look out for, a midfielder whom has both English and Spanish origins, Barcelona are extremely unhappy, with the transfer set to go through around July this year. Arsene Wenger is also reportedly close to sign Toral’s midfield partner Sergi Samper from Barcelona’s youth team and chiefs at Barca are far from impressed with how the Gunners are going about their business:

We explained to the board of directors at Arsenal that we knew that they wanted to buy him and that we did not like it. I said what any president would have said. For us, it is very important to maintain a group of boys who grow together, and not allow clubs with money to take them away at the age of 16. We told them that it was a little immoral.

    And I accuse Rossell of presiding over a bunch of diving, injury- feigning cheats.

    Yuck, yuck, yuck… that’s all they know. Dare they say gunners are being immoral, what is immoral I asked? Donning a Barca(bullshit) jersey on Cesc, saying he has the bullshit DNA in him and in actual fact they do not have $$$ to buy him back. So they resort to such dirt tactics hoping to be able to get him on the cheap… So I asked who is the one who is being immoral when what the gunners did are within the football regulations. Way to go gunners.

    Toral and Samper play with an incredible understanding between the two. i think both are going to be better than merida who was vastly overrated.
