Arsenal had deal for Morgan Schneiderlin 'done and dusted', claims Secret Footballer

Published Add your comment

Arsenal had a transfer ‘done and dusted’ for Manchester United star Morgan Schneiderlin in January, only for Arsene Wenger to get cold feet and change his mind. Now, that’s the claim made by the Secret Footballer - an anonymous pro who writes an online blog - but it certainly rings true with regards to the strong rumours suggesting the Gunners wanted the France international before he signed for United. According to this week’s blog entry the Secret Footballer met with an Arsenal scout, who told him said deal was all but confirmed before Wenger’s backtracking. Let us know what you think about that in the comments box provided. Meanwhile, Thierry Henry is a self-confessed Anthony Martial fan. The Gunners legend, himself, of course, a natural born goalscorer, said he loved how calm the United striker was when under pressure. High praise indeed coming from Henry.
