This transfer window is like a bunch of dominoes. The first one falls, the rest will follow suit.

The first major domino was Kaka. He reluctantly agreed to go to Real Madrid, because it would ultimately end up helping AC Milan through rough financial times. He didn’t sound overjoyed to become a Madrid player, but regardless of that, Florentino Perez has gotten his man. This will now lead to multiple scenarios.

AC Milan was previously thought to have been interested in Emmanuel Adebayor. Flushed with Kaka money, they could make a run for him. Only now though, they have turned their eyes to Edin Dzeko, a man who was mooted as a potential successor to Adebayor. Dzeko’s dream club is AC Milan, and I can’t take any offense to him wanting to move there. When comparing the two seasons between Adebayor and Dzeko, AC Milan may just conclude that the latter is a better player. Fair play to them, but that essentially means we’ll keep Adebayor. That means, Adebayor needs to dig in deep, prove to the Arsenal community that he’s still one of the best strikers in the world. I believe this is fully possible. Let’s not discount the huge goals he has scored in the past.

David Villa, Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, David Silva, these are some of the big names being bandied around the place. Which is perfectly fine with me, as we’re conducting our business early. Vermaelen is an unknown quantity to most, but Martin Jol is said to be furious that Ajax has sold him. That brings a smile to most Gooners.

Now, if we can get another CB (even though it looks like Senderos may be headed back here, why would Milan want to keep this guy?), and Blaise Matuidi, I’ll be more than satisfied.
