Report: Mustafi agent holds talks with Barcelona

124

Shkodran Mustafi’s agent appears to have held talks with Barcelona about a possible move to the Spanish giants.

The German centre-back is out of contract at the end of June and is thought to have turned down a new deal at the Emirates.

The 28-year-old is free to sign a lucrative pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs in January although Arsenal, eager to make room in the squad for new faces, would most likely sanction an exit when the transfer window opens in 10 days time.

After taking to Instagram to post a picture outside the Nou Camp, representative Emre Ozturk was forced to deny suggestions that another client, 17-year-old Rapid Vienna forward Yusuf Demir, was a target for Barcelona.

Quizzed by Austrian site Spox.com, he let slip that it was actually Mustafi that was the subject of a meeting.

His response, according to Sport Witness: “I’m not in Barcelona because of Yusuf Demir, but because of Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal, whom we also represent.”

On the surface, it looks pretty fanciful. But then you remember that Barcelona are in a terrible state right now – takes one to know one πŸ˜‰ – and have a history of left field Arsenal purchases.

A swap deal for Messi seems fair.

I’m laughing on multiple levels, the comedy of the idea the once might Barcelona want Mustafi and in complete despair that we’ve offered him a new contract

Cultured Determination

I heard he will be taking over pique. rumours have it that xhaka is also taking over busquet, and willian might take over messi.

Anonymarse

Yeah we can do a swap

Unbelievable. Do clubs actually watch players anymore?

El Mintero

I heard there’s an opening in the Barca Janitor’s office. Be a good move for him.

Ps. I could have used a sweeper pun there but you get the drift…

Geefive

Are they fucking cra…….crafty? Crafty in the obviously intelligent scouting of our defense. Wow, please do not try to pilfer the genius that is Mustafi. We need him so desperately. Oh shucks, what can we do?

Con

His agent is a fucking wizard.

Medium Mozart

From Messi to Mustafi…

FC Banterlona.

Arsenalista

I know, he’ll be on the same pitch as Messi thinking I can’t believe I’m here, while Messi will be on the same pitch thinking I can’t believe he’s here.

Dom47

Teakster

Swap deal for Messi?!

TeeCee

We should ask for Messi plus Β£50m. That’ll give us some room to negotiate.

Public Elneny Number One

Moves to Barcelona, becomes the best defender to ever play the game πŸ˜†

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

TGDTEL

Nzini

just like Vermaelen

Aussie Gooner

His Agent should be knighted. Make a statue outside Emirates if his agent gets him out in January.

Pau

I second: statue for that agent if it happens.

Leon

Obviously there for the stadium tour then..

Pooner

It’s going to be great watching Mustafi lift the Champions League the same weekend we lose the Championship play-off final to Stoke.

Man Manny

Henry. Cesc.

Crash Fistfight

The agent might just have gone to the Nou Camp for a bit of sightseeing and is actually discussing a move with Espanyol.

Naked Cygan

Next
Mustafi to Barcelona
Kola to Bayern
William to PSG
Sokratis to Real Madrid
Homer Simpson to Arsenal

The world has gone mad!!!

Max

Loooool!

Dom47

We already have sideshow Bob!

Torterrier

I’d take Homer over most of our players

Perry Farrell’s Satellite Partey

0/10 for missing the open goal with Inanimate Carbon rod

Merson’s grin

Ozil to Forest Green Rovers.

Rens

Must be that he’s in Barcelona to talk with Espanyol right πŸ˜€

Dave

Is April already?

Dom47

Didn’t know April fools day is also in December LOL

Des

I’ll be happy to pay his flight and room accommodation if it see’s the back of him for good.

Dom47

I’ll carry his luggage

Piesporterfooty

I will drive him to the airport

Better the Devil You Know

I’ll wake him up

Cechmate

I’ll make him coffee, pack his bags, do the dishes, walk the dog, whatever, just go….

Ben EagerBeaver

This thread…😭🀣🀣🀣

Twatsloch

“Mustafi agent holds talks with Barcelona…”

…about one of his other players.

Dom47

Maybe Barcelona B or Barfelona, another club in 4th league in Spain so it’s misspelled.

Biggles

Talking about what, I wonder? How much better the weather is there. That said, if we are in truly in a parallel universe now then this is clearly the beginning of a plot to destroy Barca from within. Real Madrid, we’re looking at you…

Dom47

They are a banter club as we are these days, but it should be too much. Right? RIGHT? :))

Anyways, if there is any truth there they should fire their scouts as well.

Merlin’s Panini

No they shouldn’t. They’re doing a great job! They should also sign Willian, Kolasinac and Xhaka.

Dom47

LOL

Runar’s son could also challenge Ter Stegen for that no 1 spot and Luiz has a few good years under his belt left.

GoonerJag

I’m happy to drive him to the airport…any airport.

AlexNuggz

LMAO!

SarcasmB0t

It’s Christmas miracle!

But seriously, Barcelona is probably attracted by his experience playing for a team in free fall.

Me from Here

Hmm. Mustafi definitely has Barca DNA.

Dom47

Xhaka to real then, and one last middle finger to the fans from him via social networks!

Dom47

I thought this is a serious site, then I see this article… Also, he turned us down? Whoever offered him a new contract should be banned from work in football for life.

Hank3103

Mustafi must have a serious agent

Kartik Iyer

Can we throw in a Willian for free?

Jim wall

Brilliant news now just get rid of the new goalkeeper
Bellerin
Sokatras
Kolas
Luiz
Xakai
Cobbello
Elneney
Pepe
Ozil
Lacca
Willian

Dom47

Cobbello, Sokatras and Xakai LOL

StockholmGooner

Definite pelanty!!!

bendtnerschristmastree

This is the most fitting picture ever on this blog hahaha

GoonerG

Stop the world. I’m getting off.

Dom47

Crazy right? The code is broken, some spoiled kid close to whoever created this world got playful…

Arsenalista

I can’t believe we even offered him a new deal. I think 5 million would represent a fair deal….like if we offered Barca 5 million to take him.

Als

From close sources! Everything is apparently agreed, the only thing left on the agenda is the length of the contract. They want 7 years, but Mustafi is looking for something more short-term as he’s eyeing the Real deal in a couple of years.

Ben EagerBeaver

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Drew

Can we swap him in Jan for Dembele?

J to the C

HAHAHAHA…. wait, we offered him a new deal?

He's got no hair but we don't care...

Barcelona? Ahahahahahahaha

Snc

Please include Xhaka too… And willian. Ohh take Runarsson too. Pretty sure Marc Stegen needs a competitor.

Cultured Determination

I would give him away free to our rivals- city.. liverpool.. man u… spuds.. leicester.. chelsea.. you know.. so that he can at least be on their bench. It’s like planting a time bomb there.
Oh wait. Our rivals this year ars different. Can we put them in those clubs?

hugh

out of contract at the end of June and is thought to have turned down a new deal at the Emirates.

WTF?!?!?!

Announce Bendtner

I worry his agent is flirting with Barca to secure the Β£250k a week contract that Mustafi deserves.

Jay

At last, some positive news about Arsenal.
