The list of Arsene Wenger’s targets this summer was not short of players. The reason Gunners missed out on a few signings were because of their slow negotiation. But all is well that ends well, Arsenal managed to land the coup of the season. Another of those players who reject Arsenal revealed today how did he turn out the offer and how the Frenchman was keen to bring him at Ashburton Groove.
The 28-year-old Juanfran from Atletico Madrid has affirmed that Arsene Wenger was keen to bring him to the Emirates but the right-back insists he is happy at his current club, despite seemingly having the opportunity to increase his wages at The Emirates.
Today in an interview to Marca, Juanfran claimed, “It is true that I had an offer from Arsenal that any player would have liked to have accepted. But I am very happy here. For me, as everyone knows, there is no better club than Atletico.”
Juanfran is a much respected defender all over Europe. With four years left on his contract he has made 94 appearances for his club scoring 3 goals. Also Demba Ba today has revealed his desire to join Arsenal but due to Mourinho it couldn’t happen.
