Seems weird that they would do that, would have thought the official club site would only publish things that were confirmed

thats zlatan with his arsenal shirt…

In 2001 Arsenal agreed a £3m fee with zlatans club at the time Malmo FF, Personal terms with Ibrahimovic were also agreed and his was even given the number 9 shirt (photo above) It all basically a done deal…Until it all went wrong.

Zlatan was sure the deal was done and even posed for photos with the number 9 shirt, He called his friends at Malmo and told them how happy he was to be signing for a great club like Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger then told Zlatan the deal was NOT done and that he would have to play in a trial match before he signed him as he was not 100% of his talents. Zlatan was so angry about this he refused to play in the game and walked out of the Arsenal training ground. Zlatan felt insulted by Wengers late decision and refused to go back as he knew there were other clubs who wanted him.

Wenger decided NOT to sign him for £3m and he was then sent back to Malmo FF.

Wenger said: “I rate him highly. I wanted to buy him when he was a boy but it didn’t turn out that way.”

Malmo then sold Zlatan to Ajax and Arsenal signed Francis Jeffers for £8m, for almost 3x times as much as what they could have signed Zlatan.

probably not, but everyone harps on about wengers "fuck ups" of which there are two, jeffers and reyes.
sir alex spends so much more on mediocre players and no one says anything.
jeffers still has won the double, played 22 times for arsenal scored 4 goals. reyes has too won the double and wasnt a bad player in his first two seasons either.
