If you’re an avid Arsenal fan there’s every chance you’ll know the tale of the time Cristiano Ronaldo almost signed for you in 2003. Well, if you’re one of those that still gets nightmares over losing out on the Portuguese superstar look away now, because new information has been released that definitely rubs salt in the wounds. The player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has revealed that he thought Ronaldo was going to sign for Arsenal, with it also said that the Real Madrid forward wanted a north London switch. It gets worse, as Arsene Wenger had even put the number 9 shirt aside for him. Moving on, one stat that will restore Arsenal supporters’ faith is the one that sees Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla having made the same amount of chances as the Manchester United team as a whole this term. That’s right, the crafty pair have levelled the Red Devils’ 81 chances made. Wenger’s philosophy is paying dividends.
