United’s signing of former Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin may have had an uplifting effect among Reds but it seems to have left a sour taste in the mouth for many Arsenal fans. The Frenchman was linked with a move to the Emirates with many pundits suggesting he preferred signing for Arsene Wenger’s side than coming to Old Trafford. Whether there’s any truth to that rumour remains to be seen but one thing’s for sure, many Gooners are feeling a tad miffed that Wenger didn’t move heaven and earth to sign the 25 year-old.
Arsenal have strengthened this Summer by the signing of Petr Cech and if they could also add some steel to their midfield there’s a good chance they’ll be able to mount a serious title challenge. Schneiderlin could have been a useful signing for them, but not naturally their attentions will turn elsewhere.
United may not be done at just Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian, there could be more signings heading to Old Trafford as the club still look for a striker following the departure of Robin Van Persie.
Im not bothered United got schneiderlin. To spend 25 mil on a player who is a little bit better than coquelin is not worth it. There are other defensive midfielders out there of great quality at a lower price. Imbula from marseille comes to mind. The guy is pretty much Diaby’s clone.
Imbula signed for Porto last week mate. By that logic you won’t sign anyone. Carvalho, Lars Bender are both around similar levels to Coqelin aswell and they’ll cost 20m+. Vidal is a box to box so doubt you were ever in for him. Therefore, this guy was the best option available this window imo.
Lol at “a little bit better than coquelin”
Huge respect for Arsenal, Wenger and the fans who deserve success for their loyalty and patience over the years. As a United fan I’m delighted Arsene didn’t seem fussed over Scneiderlin though; it would seem he does have other plans and they may well work out for the best, and Wenger has surely earned Arsenal fan’s trust, but I believe Schneiderlin’s worth to United in their push for the title will be significant. His presence, in front of what will be a stronger back four, could well make up for any shortfall in the quality of goalie should we lose de gea.
Cech was an amazing coup for your team and could well be the difference between title challengers and perrenial top 4 qualifiers. Heres looking forward to a battle royal at the top of the BPL next season, may the best footballing team win.
U might be sounding may be a little bit of some jeolousy if not a matter of just easyieng your heart down. cant you feel it?
