Arsenal and Tottenham in a battle for United star 0

Posted on October 11, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Guardian, Arsenal and Tottenham are in a transfer battle to land Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly in the January transfer window.

Both clubs are looking to strengthen at the heart of their defences, for different reasons. It seems that Bailly has become a prime target for the north London pair.

Endured mixed fortunes at United

When Bailly arrived at United in 2016 from Villarreal for a fee of around £30million, the Ivory Coast international was seen as the answer to the Red Devils central defensive problems.

Liverpool and United preparing January moves for Ramsey 0

With the situation between Arsenal and Aaron Ramsey becoming clearer by the day, reports about interest from other clubs are bound to come thick in the coming months. His current deal expires next summer and it is reasonable to assume that, having withdrawn all offers of a new deal, Arsenal would look to sell the player in January to avoid missing out on a transfer fee altogether.

Various recent reports have linked the Welshman with Liverpool, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan, but the latest one from Evening Standard claims the two clubs from the northwest of England are set to do battle for Ramsey’s signature in January, looking to make a cut-price deal.

Look, we don’t like being negative or disparaging to former players of Arsenal Football Club, because there’s just no point in doing so. Every single man and woman who has pulled on that famous strip has contributed something towards the lineage of this football team, whether it be for good or for bad. Sure, we can debate how effective or impactful they were during their time here, but we should never go as far as to openly criticise them when the issue has been put to rest.

Could Arsenal be in for Bailly? 0

According to the Mirror, Arsenal are among the clubs monitoring the situation with Manchester United’s Eric Bailly.

Bailly signed for United in the summer of 2016 after a successful spell with Spanish side Villareal lasting a year and a half. Before that he played for Espanyol. He has made a total of 60 appearances for the Red Devils so far and had been praised for a while as their best defender.

However, after United’s shaky start to the season, he has fallen down the pecking order having put in a few questionable performances, and manager Jose Mourinho is now favoring the duo of Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof in the absence of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo. Bailly’s place is currently on the bench.

United vs Spurs: good or bad result? 0

It’s always somewhat fun to see two of your rivals battling it out because, for the most part, there’s no pressure on your shoulders. They’re busy doing their thing whilst you’re busy doing yours, and all you really have to worry about is what food & drink to order for when you’re watching the game. Case and point: Manchester United took on Tottenham Hotspur last night in an entertaining encounter, and we’re convinced Gunners fans would’ve been watching how things developed very, very closely.

The Fellaini hype train? 0

As much as we love how active Unai Emery seems to be in the summer transfer window, there’s also room for caution. While his tactic of throwing things against the wall and seeing what sticks is certainly a fun one, it can also be a little bit dangerous too. If certain transfers don’t come off then he could be left standing around with nothing by the time the season begins, or instead of nothing, one of his main acquisitions could end up being Marouane Fellaini.

The rumour mill continues to run at full steam, with dozens of players being linked with a move to the Emirates. Some seem more realistic than others, but they’re making the headlines all the same – and Unai Emery is a big reason for that. The Spaniard has introduced a level of excitement which we haven’t seen all too often in recent times, and as we look ahead to the future, there are more than a few reasons to be optimistic.

Was the Sanchez deal a good one? 0

The dust has officially settled on the 2017/18 Premier League season, and for the most part, it was a pretty interesting year. While Manchester City were able to run away with the title at the top of the table, there were plenty of other stories going on throughout the division worth talking about. One of the biggest, which had been brewing for quite some time, was Alexis Sanchez’s move from Arsenal to Manchester United – which sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the opposite direction.

While the dust is only just starting to settle in regards to the 2017/18 Premier League season, we’re already extremely invested in seeing what’s going to go down next year – which is hardly a surprise. Sure, the World Cup is going to keep us occupied for a few months, but the consistency and the drama of domestic football is something that is always going to capture our hearts and attention.

On This Day In 2015: Arsenal salvage a point against United 0

We’re back for yet another trip down memory lane, and this one comes from a game that took place three years ago. It was Arsenal vs Manchester United in a clash that was set to provide some clarity on who would end up finishing 3rd in the Premier League, and thankfully for the Gunners, they were able to ‘hold serve’ so to speak by picking up a 1-1 draw against The Red Devils at Old Trafford.
