Andrei Arshavin Agent Talks about His Future with the Gunners

Andrei Arshavin created a buzz in the media this week when he reiterated his wish to play for Barcelona. The Russian international said that playing one season at Barcelona would be the pinnacle of his career. After his comment, Arsenal fans became very angry and some of them even doubt that Arshavin’s heart is not at Arsenal now.

However, Dennis Lachter, the agent of Arshavin, said that only anything 'extraordinarily dramatic’ could take his client to another club before ending his career. Lachter also asked Arsenal fans to be realistic about Arshavin’s future at the North London club as he has three more years left in his contract. However, he could not give any guarantee that his client would be at Arsenal next season.

Regarding Arshavin’s recent comment revealing his wish to play for Barcelona, his agent believes that it was because of the Russian’s disappointment of not winning any title with Arsenal in the last two seasons. Moreover, Mr. Lachter also added that Arshavin’s Arsenal future is also related to manager Wenger’s future at the club. Here, it is noteworthy that Arsene Wenger’s contract will come to an end at the end of season next year.

Well, there is no doubt, Arshavin is a good player who has done very well for Zenit as well as for Arsenal, and his performance for Russian is also very impressive. However, you can not deny the fact that Arshavin would lose the media coverage at Barcelona because he would have to compete with the likes of Messi and Xavi for a place in the first eleven.
