Real Madrid poised to snatch Arsenal’s Brazilian target by copying Wenger’s transfer strategy


By 1970’s Gooner

Arsene Wenger’s transfer strategy has began to bear fruits with the young guns stunning everyone with their beautiful football and their relentless pursuit of the Premiership title.

Arsene Wenger has for some time now abandoned buying established stars since paying huge sums of money for their signatures has proved no guarantee of success.

He has instead created a world wide network of scouts who scour the globe for emerging young talent which has the potential to be moulded into what Wenger considers football excellence.

He has undoubtedly been proved right as the Arsenal squad is now full of Academy players who have gone through Wenger’s tutelage in the art of playing the beautiful game.

As first reported by Arsenal Analysis one such player could have been with Arsenal since last season but his Brazilian club “Corinthians” refused to sell him.

You can read up about it here:Brazilian wonder kid Dentinho: "Arsenal came in for me"

Arsene Wenger was first to recognize Dentinho’s abilities and prospects who is regarded as one of South America’s hottest talents.

“Arsenal made a proposal but Corinthians did not agree for them to negotiate. I was not bothered, I think that my moment is going to arrive” Dentinho said recently to Brazilian internet sports paper Globesport.com

Now it seems that Spanish giants Real Madrid have seen the light and have decided to adopt Wenger’s approach to transfer policy by trying to attract young talent to their Academies and nurturing them into first team players.

The Spanish sports paper “Marca” reports that one such player is Brazilian wonderkid Dentinho.

It is reporting that Real Madrid’s technical Director, Miguel Angel Portugal, has shifted the emphasis away from the known “Galactico” approach.

The club was investing huge sums of money to buy world renowned stars such as David Becham and Ronaldo, whose contribution however was doubted by many in Spain.

He has now focused on finding young players who have the potential to become first team players with a budget of a few million euros.

According to Marca”s sources close to the player, Real have already begun negotiations for his transfer.

It looks like where Wenger goes the others follow, but it remains to be seen whether Wenger will sit back and let Real snatch the player from under his nose.

Dentinho is thought very highly in Brazil and Arsenal will do well to get in front of Real Madrid in this

I think Arsenal's success this season has made everybody question their transfer policies and their academies, all over the world.
You can compete for honours with kids and if, and it is a big if, we win the title this year Arsenal will become a template for success!

buying young players who have potential does not mean you have a winner at hand. whats important is this player gets the environment to prosper. Just look at Royston Drenthe, a good solid player, who I was expecting will reach some dizzying heights, but we are disappointed are we not? Real Madrid is a big club, but it seldom thinks about their players...sorry but Dentino will loose his potential if he moves to Bernabeu.

I agree. some clubs seem to be a breeding ground for young players where they can develop and thrive whereas other clubs seem to smother and destroy talent. I dont know if this the coaching or the unfair pressure or whatever but it seems some clubs are just better at it.

Wenger has the vision to see a wider picture of the future of football. Its no wonder that Madrid will try to copy Wengers blueprint. Look at how well Arsenal are doing this season. He has the foresight to see things before anyone else. Thats why he's the best manager in the world and we're lucky to have him.

I think that young talent needs the right environment to blossom. If the club is impetous or changes managers very often then the youth development goas out of the window. Look at what happened at real madrid.
Barcelona are now investing in youth too.

There is no future for kids at Real Madrid - their fans have no patience.

Arsenal give youngster a genuine chance if they are good enough.
