Javier Hernandez looks certain to join Real Madrid on loan while Danny Welbeck appears set for a departure too, making room for the prolific Colombian.
United have paid a whopping £12m up front to the French side and will be paying the 28-year-old’s £200,000-a-week wages.
Absolute ludicrous money for a loan move, Arsene Wenger would never have done such a deal anyway. Seems a strange one for United who already have Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie up front. But the deal means the Gunners miss out on one of their most linked-with players ahead of tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Hopefully we can get someone in that isn’t Welbeck, Edinson Cavani is another who has been reported to want a move away however he played and scored in PSG’s rout yesterday,
Not looking good Gooners.
