Well here is some interesting news that may have a lot of the Arsenal faithful pull a moronic face – Denilson is coming back!
The 24-year-old midfielder rejoined his boyhood club Sao Paulo on a season-long loan deal last summer after being overlooked and falling down the pecking order at The Emirates.
The Brazilian was hopeful of extending his stay at Sao Paulo, but for some strange reason Arsenal want him to report back in time for pre-season training.
Denilson was quoted in The Sun saying:
‘I would stay another six months, but the decision was not mine.
‘I have a contract with Arsenal and I have to stick to it.’
Now I for one don’t get this move by the club, unless of course they plan to ship him out for good in the summer, which seems highly likely judging by the player’s latest comments.
But you can never rule out the possibility that maybe, just maybe, Denilson still has a future at Arsenal!!! Perhaps Arsene Wenger will give him one more chance to prove himself worthy of playing for the Gunners.
Though this to me doesn’t seem likely because A] we have at least 5-6 midfielders who are technically much better than him and B] if Yann M’Vila arrives in the summer from Rennes, it will only place Denilson further down the pecking order than he already is!
I really, really hope that the club’s decision to bring back Denilson, rather than keep him out in Brazil for an extra six more months, is because they finally want to get rid of him permanently.
