After being rumbled on the radio & snapped in a shirt, Reyes has once again been caught sniffing around Real Madrid.

Earlier this week Jose Antonio Reyes was pictured in the Sun newspaper wearing a Real Madrid shirt. Granted it was an old shirt and there was no way of knowing when the picture was taken, but there is no getting away from the fact that Jose looked happy in the Spanish giants shirt.

Then there was the incident last year when Reyes was conned into believing he was talking to the Real Madrid president and admitted he wanted to play for the club, once again you could argue that Reyes was a little thrown by the call and just told the ‘president’ what he wanted to hear out of respect.

But this new picture is somewhat disturbing. It shows Reyes in a ‘thumbs up’ pose in front of a pc screen that clearly shows the Marca website with the story of Reyes to Madrid.

As with the stories before, I’ve been able to rationalise what had happened, but to me this picture is staggering. Words can’t describe what the little Spaniard is doing and it seems naive to say the least.

I think it maybe time to cut our losses and let the player have the transfer he so clearly wants, after all, rumours have resurfaced that Baptista will be makeweight in the transfer.

Well I’ll let you decide for yourselves, please use the article comments to voices your opinions as I’d be very interested to hear some different theories on this.

  • Is it Naivity or Stupidity ? or both? in light of this picture and it looks pretty genuine, he has to go, its been pretty obvious over his time with us that he’s quite weak, but this is staggering!!

  • he is just tryin to speed up the transfer to real by doing these pics to antagonise the board or maybe AW. he doesn’t have to do this he jus has to lay low coz he’ll get his wish providing real meet our asking price, which i believe they will. Goodbye Jose..

  • oi da papers are sayin that there gonna throw in baptista as part of the deal. wouldn’t be such a bad idea but i’d prefer straight cash. buy hargreaves a target for man u, as gilbertos replacement sooner or later, but he’ll provide cover for gilby. let walcott occupy the left side left vacant by reyes, he’ll provide cover for rosicky. or go 4 nuri sahin for the left side and switch him to the right when freddie gets past his sell by date. i dunno jus want us to buy some quality players soon coz i’m getting tired and bored of waiting, especially when the premiership is a week away basically…

  • Get rid of him! Overrated.

    Ribery would deliver much more.

    A Robinho swap would be nice though.

    Basically – Arsenal will sell when Ribery is confirmed. If he isn’t. They wont.

  • Has any other player worked so hard to engineer a move away from their club? Can only think of Paul Ince and appearing in the Utd team photo before he’d even signed for them (that?s right, tapping up was not invented by Chelsea).

  • ?buy hargreaves a target for man u, as gilbertos replacement sooner or later? My, my. Chelsea get a lot of (unwarranted) criticism from oppo fans, including Gooners, for supposedly buying every player on the planet and letting them rot on the bench, just so other teams can?t get them. And here you are espousing Arsenal doing just that!

  • well ribery has pledged his future to marseille if u didn’t kno and also if we did buy him he’d be cup-tied for the CL as he played in the uefa cup last night. Real would never allow robinho to leave, plus he’s a bit too lightweight for the EPL. Nuri Sahin is lightweight but his abilities are exceptional and would benefit our all round play i’m telling you guys. He is another rosicky and probably will become better than tomas, so i stress we go for him. Same as hargreaves, diarra or mavuba. Plus a quality left back and centre back.

  • Sahin been around while with man utd after him for as little as 4m he would be a class signing did exception well in under 17 tourny. And Hargreaves would be a good signing as he is also so verstile. And as protocal said with Ribrey now cuptied and made up with marseille, it is highly unlikely he would move.

  • The reason reyes is not already a real madrid player is because they are offering something like 7 million for him. To get him they will have to double that because otherwise arsenal will lose out on the deal which wouldnt be acceptable in selling a 22 year old current international. An interesting piece in that marca today was saying that robinho & baptista are not part of capello’s plans & that he doesnt want to play them. As we all know marca are madrid’s mouthpiece so there is probably truth in that statement.

  • Reyes is from a gypsy backround. We all know what their like for driving a deal. I bet he can’t wait to spit on his hand, give wenger back 20 quid to sweeten the deal and hitch up and **** off to Madrid. Best of luck Jose. Shame you didn’t work out. Thanks for the screamer at Chelsea and some flashes of brilliance.

  • well im glad that u agree wiv me. Now hopefully AW reads this and acts on it coz we have the money now so we should jus go for it. we’ve lost quite a few experienced players so we need to add more quality to the squad. defence is where we need the most experience. not neccessarily in the other areas as players we have have gained exp. sahin would operate on the left wiv rosicky and eventually move to the right wen freddie gets past it. walcott will be blooded in slowly and will eventually operate on the flanks or possibly up front if bendtner, lupoli and aliadiere don’t make the grade. its worth it and we shud buy them players sahin, hargreaves, LB & CB and we’ll win everything…

  • GunnerPete says….Blindjak should read naive or dimjak mate. The press & fans may chat about AFC signing some of these players, but in the past nine years, how many have AFC signed per year??? ONE, and usuallly after selling one or two ‘stars’ to idiot clubs for big big fees.

    But Kensingnton berks otherwise know as Chavski, not only talk it, they go and buy it. They are so cocky they dont realise that all the runours are started for Chavski to see, just in time for them to rush in and buy, hence SWP.

    This year I hope the rest just get on with playing each other, and letting Chavs have all the trophies until they realise they, unlike all the other real clubs, dont get any respect for winning. In fact I can see the Kings Road mob being in a league of one soon, and probably still think they deserve to be accepted. Sadly, they will never be seen as worthy champions by the people that matter, other supporters, worldwide!

  • Reyes’s saga should be an opportunity for AW to grab Robinho or Batista, players that he was prepared to spend about £18M each a year ago. I would prefere Robinho, but either would do for me.
    How long it took the young Fabregas to convaince us? just one year. So for me, I don’t think Reyes would ever settle with us; the best thing is to get something for the club in his likely transfer to Real and close his chapter.
    If we get Robby or Batista, we will be better off signing a world class defensive midfield to allow Gilberto to refresh and importantly, allow Fabregas to get more offensive, as he’s got a fantastic goal scoring touch to be kept on ball winning duty.
