Gallas wants to be a Gunner

Gallas wants to be a Gunner

 
AFP
August 6, 2006
LONDON (AFP) - France international central defender William Gallas's relations with Premiership champions Chelsea deteriorated further when his agent revealed he would like to move to Arsenal.

Pierre Frelot told the News of the World Sunday that Gallas was determined to leave despite being offered a new four year contract of 80,000 pounds a week.

The 28-year-old - a six million pounds signing from Marseille five years ago - has been keen to leave since May because he does not like playing at fullback, instead of his preferred central defensive role in which he excelled at the World Cup where France reached the final and lost to Italy in a penalty shootout.

 
 
"William has decided to leave," Frelot said.

"Arsenal are interested and we have to find an agreement with Chelsea, even if I know they will do everything to keep him.

"Chelsea have made us a very good offer to sign a new contract but William would like to go and we will see what happens.

"However, I don't know if Chelsea will agree to sell him to one of their greatest rivals."

Should Chelsea give way and let Gallas, who has played over 200 times for Chelsea and was pivotal in their two title wins, go he could be used as part of a deal with Arsenal over their England international right back Ashley Cole, who has been a long time target of the Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

Gallas, who has also been linked with Italian giants AC Milan, provoked a wider rift earlier this week when he failed to arrive on time for their tour of the United States and was told not to bother turning up atall.

Mourinho has condemned the player's "lack of respect" and stripped him of his number 13 shirt, giving it to newcomer Michael Ballack, who had originally been give the No 19 shirt.

Speaking in Los Angeles last Wednesday, Mourinho said the whole team were upset at Gallas's actions.

"Everybody is upset because we had a strong family and a strong group and this has shown a lack of respect to everybody and I don't like that," he said.

If Gallas does sign with Arsenal....that's a one time upgrade of their defence.  He is probably one of the most versatile defenders in the world.  Either wing back position or central defender.  He would be a great addition to ANY team.  Scores the occasional goal too.

I suspect one his problems with Chelsea has always been that he wants to play central defence but they keep playing him at the wing back position.  Same problem he had with France until recently.  Perhaps why he hasn't had more interest from other clubs are:

1 - His wages might be pretty high
2 - He might insist on playing central defender only.

Gallas has never had a great relationship with Chelsea.

The year Abramovic came in he made plenty noise about leaving and only signed a new contract at the very end.

He also made noises about leaving last season and the season before.

The man really wants to go abroad and he would only choose Arsenal because: it isn't Chelsea and he would start at  CB and Henry and Wenger there.

The irony is that Cole signed a new contract recently so Arsenal have bargaining power, Chelsea does not and that is the only reason that the injury-prone Cole is valued more than Gallas.

It is rumoured that Arsenal turned down 24 million for Cole, which is madness in my opinion, and though I see Chelsea upping their offer I don't see them giving Gallas and big money to get Cole.

It is quite possible that both Cole and Galls will stay put although Cole's situation will be a lot clearer this week with the Champion's league qualifier for Arsenal.

Whatever happens though, both Chelsea and Arsenal are thin at the back compared to Liverpool and United.

Only one good defender Man Boo have and he name Heinze.  Dat's it my friend.

Thanx fuh de laugh doh.  GOOD ONE!!!  :rotfl: :rotfl:

              Well, Chelsea might be a little thin at the back (as YOU see it) but they very, very overweight in the middle and up front, so I hope liverpool and manu and even Ass-'n-all have the scales to handle them heavy weights Chelsea goin' an' res' on dem for their sakes.  Otherwise, Chelsea go  :flamethrower: dem!!

Palos you feel I studying you.

Arsenal still counting men like Cygan and Senderos among they top defenders so what is your point. Yuh forget that Sol Campbell gone. Say what yuh want Arsenal don't have numbers at the back.

Same for Chelsea Mango Chow. Terry, Gallas, Fereira and Carvalho. If Cole comes in Bridge leaves. And keep in mind neither Carvalho or fereira start more than 25 games last season. Say what yuh want about United defenders but if Geremi is a right-back option for your team things not too rosy.

    I look at how Chelsea has conceded far less goals over the last two seasons than all of those other "big 4 or 5" teams have and I ain't too worried.  Even if yuh look at what Chelsea has done to manu over the past two seasons, you and all would have to concede that allyuh have some ketchin' up to do.  I more worried about the team spirit being disrupted by men grumbling for more playin' time.

I love the delusion of the supporters of the non-Chel$ki top 4 teams.

The fact is that the only way any of your teams can win the premiership is if the Chel$ki dressing room implodes. None of them have a squad deep enough to match them over 38 games so get a grip on reality.

Actually I take it back....continue your wrangling because it's very entertaining.

Nobody is disputing what Chelsea has done or saying that United was or is a better squad overall. I am merely counting the number of ist team defenders and thinking about three cups and a league competition. If you look at the past three seasons they had more cover, Babayaro, Del Horno, Huth, Glen Johnson. Yes they were all poor but they provided cover and that is my point. What happens if Terry gets injured for a spell.

I have already said (in another thread ) that Chelsea are favourites and that an implosion is their mahor threat, so I don't know what wrangling or delusion you talking about. All I have done is stated that they are thinner at the back than United or Liverpool, which is a fact.

I would never sign for Chelski, to me it is equal to professional suicide. Yeah some would argue thatplaying for a team with the abundance of talent would make u a better player as you have stiff competition for spots, which is true but the cons far outweight thw pros...............U feel Mourinho could not win EPL this year, with a team like that his BOSS expects nothing but trophies.
I hope Arsenal, Man U, Livers and Totteham give them a good run for they money this year. It would show that buying good players does not equate to a successful TEAM. If you always have options, men cah really bounce bac from a shitty perforamce cause they know they go get BENCH in two twos

You have to remember one thing RasIred.  Even though Mourinho has alot of big names in his squad, he is still focusing on moulding a 'family' and that is the difference between him and many other big name coaches.

Imagine he has beef with Gallas just for not making that trip to the USA!

That Chelsea squad not only consists of very good individual players, but they have great team comraderie and that is the difference there.

CHELSEA FOR THE FA CUP, PREMIER LEAGUE, CHAMPIONS LEAGUE AND LEAGUE CUP.

ah love it!!

ok, going back to the thread i would love it if mr gallas goes to arsenal.  losing cole would be bad but at least there is cover at the left back position, clichy when fit is excellent and flamini could hold it down if need be.  it is in the center where arsenal needs strenthening (defense and defensive midfield), with gallas in the center whattt...is trouble

also, does anyone know if and where the match against dinamo zagreb is showing?
