Arsenal Swoop For Barcelona Starlet Guim Laporta
El Mundo Deportivo says the Gunners signed the 14-year-old son of former Barcelona president Joan Laporta after his moved to London.
Laporta was the chief of Barcelona when they managed to unsettle Thierry Henry and then sing him. The Catalan club also singed Alexander Hleb and Cesc Fabregas.
Laporta, reportedly, once said:
“The English come here to go ‘fishing’. They came to fish for Gerard Pique and they came to fish for Cesc Fabregas. It is an issue of justice that we (Barca) now want to recover them. I would have liked it if Cesc came to Barca in the way that Pique came. He abandoned Manchester United, making it clear he was going to Barca. They were players who were formed here.”
Are Arsenal having the last laugh?
