Transfer balls: Arsenal sign 85,000-a-week babysitter to help Petr Cech settle in
Transfer Balls spots this pile of steaming matter in the Daily Star. Tomas Rosicky is surely on his way out of Arsenal. He’s a terrific player but at 34 years of age and no longer near the starting XI he’s looking very replaceable.
But wait a moment! In the Daily Star, Dave Woods has an “EXCLUSIVE”.
Tomas Rosicky to stay if Arsenal sign Chelsea star Petr Cech
Why? Is Cech insisting that Rosicky stays at Arsenal?
…with the pair being so close, the Frenchman knows keeping Rosicky at The Emirates can help convince Cech that Arsenal are the right team for him.
Because Rosicky and Cech are both Czech nationals it means that having the square-cheeked midfielder around the Emirates will help Cech settle into life in London, the city he’s lived in for a decade? That’s the “exclusive”?
Rosicky will be delighted to learn that his primary function will be to operate as – and this with apologies – Cech’s Czech mate. And at £85,000-a-week, he might well be the capital’s most expensive babysitter. Something to put on his CV, there.
