The London club´s record goalscorer is on the brink of completing a reported £16million move to Barcelona and is due in Catalonia to finalise terms on Sunday and is expected to be unveiled on Monday, but he claims he leaves with a heavy heart.
"Arsenal will always be in my blood and in my heart and I will always remember you guys," the 29-year-old told Arsenal TV. "I said I was going to be a Gunner for life and I didn´t lie because once you are a Gunner you will always a Gunner. The club is in my heart and will remain in my heart forever."
