Arsenal might relax their wages

Arsene Wenger wants to buy some star players but there's one thing holding him back - his desire not to pay footballers the wages they want.  This might change SOON


Wenger is rumoured to be very interested in signing Fiorentina's Stefan Jovetic and Borussia Dortmund's Mario Gotze, but both would almost certainly want wages of around £100,000.  This would be easy if it weren't for the fact that Arsenal have an absolutely enormous wage bill even though only about four of their players are actually any good.

Wenger loves 'squad parity' and believes that paying players equally encourages team spirit.  What actually happens is that Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas immediately move somewhere else and Johan Djourou gets paid £50,000 a week.  MANAGEMENT!
