Man, transfer windows are almost as draining as an Arsenal February!
So, the news emanating out of the England camp is that Jamie Vardy is 80% likely to stay with Leicester. Fairplay if that’s the case. He’s in for a rotten season next year and he’ll have scuppered any chance of moving to a major club. That, I have no doubt about.
I find it quite staggering that he’d go to such extraordinary lengths, just to say no. Because I have no doubt there was a deal agreed. Arsenal wouldn’t embarrass themselves if they thought there was a chance he’d say no. So I don’t really understand the game. He signed a deal with Leicester in February, he’s not earning any more money out of this, it just seems super odd?
He’s a very good player, but look, I won’t cry about it. If there’s someone younger and more cultured out there, hopefully we’ll look to them instead. One thing though… Arsene, do NOT go for an injury prone player, regardless of how good they are.
Also, in other slightly worrying news. Mkhitaryan is now attracting the interest of Jose Mourinho, who landed Eric Bailly yesterday. The only concerning part is that Mikki shares the same agent as Zlatan. I don’t know why this should be an issue. Unless his agent has a logistics issue and needs all his clients in one place?
I’d imagine that Zlatan would have opted to move to Arsenal if he had an offer. I’d imagine that Mikki supporting Arsenal in his youth is playing a big part in his push to come to us.
I’d also imagine the thought of London is pretty darn appealing after spending a number of years in Dortmund. I’d also imagine the thought of playing under Mourinho is about as appealing as wedging paper clips under your nails.
The only thing that might sway him is cash… United are like the rich kid buying friends, whatever we offer, I’m sure they’ll have a spare £250k to offer on top.
That is life… what ya gonna do?
Good news is that Rapha Honigstein said if Dortmund do sell Mikki, it’s unlikely Auba will go to Manchester City. Excellent news.
Rob Holding from Bolton? I mean, I’ve never seen him play and there are no Youtube compilations that will allow me to become an expert. So not sure, hopefully he’s great and can fill the banter boots of Jenkinson!
Right, that’s me done!
THE EUROS START TOMORROW WOOO!
