Arshavin is off to Barcelona, suggests forgotten tabloid

Picture from last week reused for similar-but-different story


It’s so hard to find time for The People. You’ve got your News of the World for important five-times-a-night sex stories, then your Observer/Sunday Times to create the illusion that you might have been educated to degree level. The Mail on Sunday to suggest that you weren’t. So where exactly does The People fit in to all of this?

Nowhere, that’s where.

And yet, as spotted by our pals over at Caught Offside, a rather intriguing story hit the pages of this forgotten Sunday tabloid – once home to Gary Bushell’s opinionated television abuse column “Bushell on the Box”. The big news being that Andrey Arshavin actually told them (or so they say) that he’s going to Barcelona in the summer. Here’s what he said… apparently:

 ”I am going to Barcelona in the summer. I have always dreamed about going to Spain and playing for the best team in the world. They were unsure about me when I was playing in Russia but I have shown them that I’m the real deal and I know they are ready to talk to me.”

“It would be tough trying to compete with Xavi and Iniesta but that is the competition I want, I don’t want to walk into a team.”

Hmmmm, could this really be true?
