ARSENAL FC SIGNS JON TORAL 16 YEAR OLD FC BARCELONA PEARL

There was a very heated arguement last week in the VIP Boxes of the "Emirates Stadium" (London) between FC BARCELONA President Sandro Rosell & ARSENAL FC Chief Executive Ivan Gazdis before the Champions League match between both Clubs. The cause of the anger was 16 year old FC BARCELONA junior midfield player JON MIQUEL TORAL HARPER

ARSENAL FC has signed the player for next season & this has brought back memories of Cesc Fabregas when Arsenal also signed the player under similiar circumstances. FC Barcelona are not happy at all at losing their "pearl" & President Rosell let known to Mr. Gazdis that the Arsenal methods & manoeuvring at not ethical ways.

But lets not put passion in this story & gets some facts in here. The mother of Toral is English & the boy has a strong tie with the country & the culture. Toral was happy to sign as he asked Coach Guardiola what plans he had & if he had a place in the Barça "structure" in coming years. Added to this, one can safely assume that Barça was not "quick" enough to react & thus lost out to a much better offer for Toral.

Barça will only receive 350.000€ for a player that many see as a new "Frank Lampard" & a real talent. What "hurts" Barcelona is to see in the coming years Toral becoming a World Class player, just like Cesc Fabregas, & being reminded that the boy was born & raised at Barça.

Lastly, the manager of Toral is the brother of current Barça Coach Guardiola.
