There have been many transfers over that years that left fans angry and even speechless. Luis Figo moved from Barcelona to Real Madrid to leave the Catalans agog. When Kaka was courted by Real Madrid fans of AC Milan were out in the street in force. And even the sale of Reyes to Arsenal brought near riots from the Sevilla faithful.

But this on would take some beating. Reports today suggest that Ashley Cole may be returning to Arsenal this summer. The deal which took him to Chelsea was of course surrounded by antipathy from Arsenal fans. ‘Cashley’ as they later called him seemed to ring in the age of the mercenary footballer by leaving his long term team for a huge rival just down the road.

The player went on to have a fantastic career for Chelsea but now it seems that he is not wanted beyond the summer. So would Arsenal want him back?

The Daily Mail says:

on December 23, that Arsene Wenger admitted he would take him back.

Asked whether he would be prepared to re-sign a man who forced through a move to Chelsea in 2006, Wenger replied: ‘If I needed a left back, yes.’

The report suggests that the England international’s time at Chelsea is almost done after not being selected for another huge game – this time against Manchester City on Monday.

The fact is that Arsenal have Gibbs and Monreal for the left-back position. Although Ashley Cole is still a very good professional it would probably be more hassle than it’s worth to bring player back to Arsenal. The fans surely would;t like it….

Well, let’s find out. Arsenal fans, would you want Cashley Cole back?

    Bonaroca: What Arsenal need are loyal players and I think that Gibbs & Monreal are good enough, particularly Gibbs whom I consider as one of the finest defenders at the present moment. I wish the lad good luck .
