Nicklas Bendtner: Deal with Frankfurt unlikely

Bendtner is locked in talks with a host of clubs, as he is set to leave Arsenal this summer.

The 25-year-old Denmark international had looked close to a deal with Frankfurt but the German media has reported that a deal is looking increasingly unlikely.

Frankfurt chief Heribert Bruchhagen told Die Welt: "Chances are slim that Nicklas Bendtner will be joining us.

"He is simply in a different salary class and even if we would be able to pay those wages, he cannot deceive our key players.

"We would just able to afford a Nicklas Bendtner salary inside our wages budget. I would think it is definitely unrealistic to believe Arsenal FC could be out to heavily subsidize this deal."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
