Wojciech Szczesny has insisted that he isn’t planning a move to Barcelona, despite reports that the keeper had admitted a deal with the Catalan giants was a possibility.
Szczesny reportedly said yesterday that if he were to leave Arsenal, he would make the move to Barcelona. And while the keeper hasn’t said he didn’t say the quotes, he has insisted that any talk of leaving the Gunners is in fact laughable.
"Please continue the 'Szczesny to Barcelona' rumours. Makes me laugh every time I read it!" he wrote on his twitter.
Szczesny also addressed comments regarding him wanting to take the captaincy from Robin Van Persie, with the Poland international insisting what he said was taken out of context.
"I never said I deserve the Arsenal armband. I said that I would love to one day take the responsibility of being an Arsenal skipper. RVP [Robin van Persie] is doing a great job as a skipper and he fully deserves the armband,” he wrote.
Arsenal have suffered a poor start to the season, and while Szczesny is currently injured and unable to participate in international duty over the break, he is hoping to be fit again when the north London side take on Sunderland next weekend.
