It's been reported over the last day that both Robert Pires and Thierry Henry are on the verge of signing their new 4 deal contracts at Arsenal.
Quotes from Bob on OneFootball.com confirm this. According to Bob his own negotiations are going well and
he hints that Terry may have already signed.
He's also hoping that once the Likely Lads have signed,
Patrick Vieira might be encouraged to stick around too.
"I am happy in England and happy at Arsenal. In England there is freedom with the press, you can just say yes or no to journalists' requests, it is much cooler. I am actually much more away from the limelight than I am in France. I'm having a great time."
One can't help feeling that if Pires continues his form of this year, especially in the World Cup, it won't long before he'll be getting the kind of attention that Paddy does.
He's also branching out into the media, having signed on for
2 years with radio station Europe 1. He'll be presenting a 20 minute radio show.
