Want to enrage Arsene Wenger? Try buying one of his young lads an ice cream.
According to the Guardian, the Arsenal manager will report Inter Milan to UEFA, after the club tapped up Alexander Hleb during the team’s trip to Milan.
Hleb reportedly left Arsenal’s hotel with an agent Claudio Vigorelli, who Wenger believes escorted the 26 year-0ld to Inter’s offices on Via Durini.
Vigorelli is affiliated with international super agent Vincenzo Morabito. Morabito admitted that Vigorelli met with Hleb, but denied any meetings with Inter. “They went for an ice-cream. We are sorry that Mr Wenger took it badly and complained because we have a good relationship with him,” Morabito told the Guardian.
Wenger signed Hleb from Hamburg in 2005 for 11.2m GBP. He had been thought a disappointment until a triumphant turn-around this season – slowed down in the second half by injury.
He has previously been linked with both Inter and Barcelona.
Arsenal have a number of young mid-fielders. If they can double their money, it may be a wise decision.
