Although unwanted midfielder Denilson has found himself go through the exit door to complete a loan move to Sao Paulo, he has expressed his feelings that fellow midfielder Cesc Fabregas won’t do the same in order to complete a permanent move to Barcelona.
On the matter he told Sky Sports: “I think it’s very important because the fans, the staff at Arsenal, everyone loves Cesc and I think he’s going to stay.”
Although it would show great loyalty if he stayed, everyone knows of his strong desire to go back to his childhood club. Personally I am on the fence about him staying or leaving, and it wouldn’t really phase me if he were to leave provided we replace him with the likes of a Juan Mata. With Aaron Ramsey also looking in fine touch we would still possess a strong midfield without the former Catalan.
Denilson’s optimism sky-rocketed further when he went on to say about his own career: “I miss London, I miss Arsenal. I lived there for five years, it’s a long time for me. But I think next season I’ll be back.”
I do admire the lad for his drive and optimism, but if we were indeed to land Mata it would leave Denilson way down the pecking order in the Arsenal ranks. Perhaps after this season it may be time to call curtains on his time at the Emirates. What do you think? Do you feel he has what it takes to break back into the first team? Leave your comment below.
