As many UFO fanatics have often claimed - there`s a conspiracy. It`s interesting that the week before Henry`s seemingly pre-planned move to Barcelona the papers were full of stories revealing that Oba Martins has a release clause within his contract. The fact that when Valencia and Juve were heavily linked to the forward this release clause managed to stay safely under wraps doesn`t go unnoticed. However when Wenger`s mob gets linked suddenly it becomes common knowledge.
The plot thickens when you read that Jonathan Barnett has become the player`s agent. This is the same Jonathan Barnett that has continually bled us dry with Kieron Dyer, aggravated for trouble with Richard Wright and was no way impartial when his client was being heavily linked with Leeds back in 2001/2002. I`ve a funny feeling I know where the release clause leak came from. 10% of any cut of £13m leads to one hell of a cosy year back in London.
The talk is that we`ll be offering Martins a new improved contract that rips up his current one with the get out clause in. However I`d take a sensible wager that Arsene has successfully unsettled our forward in the wake of Va Va Voom`s departure. Expect some more developments this week.
