Matuidi in England
Sky Sports have been reporting that not only that Arsenal are interested in signing St. Etienne’s midfielder Blaise Matuidi, but that the player is in England at the moment. They go on to day that the play is in England with his agent and has been shown around Arsenal, and I do not think they meant a stadium tour!
For a player to be shown around another club’s stadium and training facility unless that club is Manchester United to whom taping up is second nature, it can only meant that the clubs have agreed a fee. St Etienne would have given the player permission to speak to Arsenal. Terms must have been discussed and a medical cannot be far away.
Matuidi is a 22 year central midfielder standing at 5ft 9in, no giant. He has expressed an interest and desire in joining Arsenal and Arsenal have been “tracking” the player all season.
If this transfer is as advanced as Sky Sports is reporting, where does that leave the potential transfer of Felipe Melo?
