Well, what do you know? Looks like Manchester United and Liverpool are keen to get all their summer transfer dealing out of the way up top.
Several newspapers are claiming this morning that ‘third parties’ acting on behalf of Nasri and United met in Manchester yesterday to discuss a potential move, though the Daily Telegraph are also offering the explanation that the Frenchman may just be flirting with the Premier League champions in order to eek a new £120,000-a-week out contract of Arsenal – doing a ‘Rooney’ so to speak.
The Telegraph are also reporting that Liverpool have tabled a £5 million bid for Gael Clichy, with Arsenal fairly likely to accept given their faith in the development of young Kieran Gibbs.
Incidentally, the Daily Mirror also seem pretty adamant that 17-year old Southampton prodigy Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will sign for the Gunners on July 1st for the princely sum of £12 million – so it’s not all bad news this morning.
Pray tell, what do you make of all that hoo-ha?
