Today came with the most idiotic Arsenal transfer rumour of all time, as Arsenal have been linked with a possible move for Juvertus’ Allesandro Del Piero.
The providers of the rumour are as unexpected as ever, because TalkSport have usually accustomed us with quality information regarding the transfer window movement, but this time they’ve made a complete fools of themselves.
Who in their right mind would think that Del Piero, who was a fabulous forward in his time but hasn’t seen a national team call-up in over 5 years and has been linked with a retirement, would make a move to Arsenal where Arsene Wenger has accustomed us to players which are young and will have a realistic market value when there contracts expire.
This must be called by far the most idiotic transfer rumour of the season, but moving on to more realistic news, according to today’s Mirror Football, the Gunners are due to make a £17 million bid for Rennes’ star Yann M’Vila as they look to sign the defensive midfielder with time to spare ahead of this summer’s EURO 2012. This is an excellent news given the fact that the EUROs will probably increase his market value and with it, the number of suitors.
