On the other hand Wenger talking to Barcelona could just as easily be him
trying to bring Eto'o to Arsenal so that he can play alongside Henry. If we
put this story about enough someone will probably publish it as a fact.
Ashley Cole never spoke with any Chelsea representatives whilst under
contract to Arsenal. He said it on numerous occasions and so did Peter
Kenyon and Jose Mourinho. Oh yes I forgot that was all a big fat lie. Just
because someone says Wenger met with Barcelona officials to discuss the sale
of Henry doesn't make it true. Maybe it is, but until there is an official
announcement then nobody, other than the persons present, or not present,
know the real facts.
