Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has denied suggestions that he could sign almost any player in the world.
Club director Lord Harris made the comments in the Daily Mail, saying Wenger has the financial backing to break the club’s transfer record.
“He’s gone a bit overboard. It’s not true,” said Wenger, who signed Petr Cech from Chelsea this summer.
“We are in a situation where we are working hard if an opportunity comes up to do something.”
Lord Harris said that, after a period of financing the Emirates Stadium, money is now available to buy almost any player in the world, with £200m in the bank.
“Apart from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, he could have any player,” he said.
