Arsenal transfer blow: Pedro will NOT quit Barcelona for Gunners

first_img1 Arsenal have received a transfer blow after it was revealed that Pedro is no longer seeking a move away from Barcelona.The Gunners have had the Spaniard high up on their wanted list for some time and have been strongly linked with a January swoop for the two-time Champions League winner.And that move looked likely with the 27-year-old, who has made just 15 La Liga appearances this season, reported to be open to a Nou Camp departure.But now Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo has claimed that Pedro and manager Luis Enrique have held clear the air talks and the player no longer wants to leave.It has also been suggested that Barca will resist all offers for the forward when the transfer window opens even though he has become a bit-part player in the first team.That means Arsene Wenger will need to look elsewhere in January if he decides to bolster his attacking line.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventGideon, Nowell Ancheta, Travis Ulberg of Highland, C.J. Ancheta and Travis Sinclair of Quartz Hill are among the top scorers in a league that will advance the four players to Southern Section individual regional play next month. League play resumes Tuesday, when Quartz Hill (34-2) and the other six league teams head to Tierra Del Sol Golf Course in California City to complete a March 16 tournament that was called because of darkness with six holes remaining. Team standings will remain official for what was a 12-hole match that day, but the final six holes will be played out for season individual averages, which determine postseason participation. The next 18-hole league tournament will be Thursday at Tierra Del Sol. Grant Ashton and Jeremy Chancellor are the other two starters for Quartz Hill, which will compete in the Palmdale Invitational May 1 at Crystalaire Country Club in Llano. Golden League scoring leader Mike Gideon was medalist at even-par 72 and Andrew Felix shot 74 as Quartz Hill High won its fifth consecutive league tournament Thursday, shooting 384 at Antelope Valley Country Club. The score, second best of the season for Quartz Hill, was good for an 18-stroke margin over second-place Highland, the four-time defending league chanpion. The Bulldogs must win the remaining three league tournaments to be in position to deprive Quartz Hill of the 2006 title. “Technically, no,” Quartz Hill coach Stu Manthey said of his team’s title status. “We won the first five tournaments, but you never know.” C.J. Ancheta of Antelope Valley shot 75, and his cousin Nowell Ancheta of Quartz Hill shot 76 to finish third and fourth. The Rebels, who have scored primarily from 395 to 405 this season, have a season-best 383. Gideon and Sinclair have shot rounds in the 60s. CSUN update: Cal State Northridge freshman Erik Jarvey, from Highland, closed with a personal tournament best of 75 to tie for 38th in the St. Mary’s College Invitational at Pebble Beach, helping the Matadors to a 12th-place finish. Jarvey, the 2005 Golden League MVP who led Northridge in scoring heading into the Pebble Beach event, finished 77-80-75-232, the Matadors’ second-best total. Senior Doug Miller led Northridge, shooting 79-75-73-227 to tie for 19th. Fresno State’s Jason Anthony won a tiebreaker over Lamar’s Oliver Bekker for the individual title. CSUN closed with a 311 for a three-round total of 927, missing a top-10 finish by five strokes.
