Szczesny Stuns Arsenal With “I Will Go To Barcelona” Claims

By on October 5, 2011

Just when Arsenal fans thought they had seen the last of their players being linked with Barcelona, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has declared he could see himself playing for the European Champions.

Szczesny has been one of the stand-out performers for the Gunners this term, putting in several eye-catching performances, including a vital penalty save against Udinese in the Champions League play-offs.

Reports in recent days have linked the giant Pole with a move to Barcelona and the 21-year-old has fuelled the fires by claiming he would be open to a move should he leave Arsenal. Responding to questions over his future, Szczesny told Polskathetimes.pl:

“I can’t declare that I will spend my entire career here, but if I leave I will have a very important reason or I will go to Barcelona.”

The stopper signed a long-term contract last year and has recently declared his love for the North London club but these latest comments will not be easy reading for Arsenal fans after the long drawn out affair involving Cesc Fabregas’ return to Catalunia and the last thing they would want is another first team player being touted for a move to Spain.

    Not surprising. He is overworking. There is nobody in front of him to stop the balls. He needs rest. But the best rest is at Arsenal. Just bring in world class defenders.

    i m a huge lfc fan but i dont hate arsenal but i was really surprised when arsene went on to buy mertasker instead of cahill i thought it will b difficult for him as he doesnt have pace , body strenght nothing but after seeing his defending till now and especially against spurs i think i can defend better than him no wonder why szczensy wants to go becz he doesnt want to b embarrased every time by conceding 3 or 4 goals becos of thier defence

    A poor and rather sick interpretation of what he is claimed to have said. Somehow I am not surprised though.

    Awesome story. There’s no smoke without fire and I’m choking on smoke here.

    Valdes needs competition to stop him being too comfortable and lax. Alot like Szczesny needs competition at Arsenal. It’s too rich to expect our keeper to not realise why he’s being bought.

    There’s no way he’ll replace Valdes, the guy is a national hero, a club favourite and the Vice Captain. Szczesny would be bought only to give a threat to Valdes’ position, to freshen him up.

    Szczesny will be a bench warmer. He’ll become like Cudicini did at the Bridge when they bought Cech.

    I think we have Szczesny signed for about 5 years, so Barcelona can try all they want. Keepers are the hardest to replace and without an adequate replacement we’re unlikely to sell.

    Saying this though, a keeper who wants to move to another club and is being stopped isn’t an ideal person to have between our posts.

    haha…surely Mertesacker is the problem, lmfao!!!

    Per & Sagna have been the only ones competent enough to hold a high-line. Koscielny with Per has been ok…but i’m really waiting for Vermaelen & Per to pair up before i make ANY assessments.

    really….i just watch these games. any kind of judgement on this skeleton crew right now is downright infantile. this is not the team we will be judging by season’s end, let alone in the next 2-3 years.

    come on people…get off your holier-than-thou soap-box & relax for a season…watch the young ones develop & gain that important EPL experience & then be pleasantly surprised by any form of success. otherwise your setting yourself up for failure…& trust me…IT’S NOT THAT IMPORTANT TO STRESS YOUR LITTLE HEAD ABOUT.
