If Arsène Wenger was an investment banker, he’d probably be a very good one. Check out these stats about players he bought and sold over time:

NICOLAS ANELKA

Bought for: £500,000

Games: 65

Goals: 23

Sold for: £22.5million to Real Madrid

Profit: £22m

EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR

Bought for: £3m

Games: 104

Goals: 46

Sold for: £25m to Manchester City

Profit: £22m

MARC OVERMARS

Bought for: £7m

Games: 100

Goals: 25

Sold for: £25m to Barcelona

Profit: £18m

KOLO TOURE

Bought for: £150,000

Games: 225

Goals: 9

Sold for: £15m to Man City

Profit: £14.85m

PATRICK VIEIRA

Bought for: £3.5m

Games: 279

Goals: 29

Sold for: £13.7m to Juventus

Profit: £10.2m

THIERRY HENRY

Bought for: £10.5m

Games: 254

Goals: 174

Sold for: £16.1m to Barcelona

Profit: £5.6m

We reckon he’s so good, if he was chancellor the UK wouldn’t be in a recession – not sure about Alistair Darling leading the gunners to much success instead, though….
