Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
The Daily Star Sunday “exclusively” reveals that United have intentionally not allocated the No.7 shirt this season because they are holding it for Griezmann, who they will buy next summer “if not before”.
And when they say “exclusively”, they mean that someone in the office just made the story up after noticing there is no No.7 in United’s current squad. This is the kind of thing gossip mongers must do to survive in the lean autumn months.
Interestingly, however, there could be competition for that No.7 shirt from another tricky forward in the France squad, and that’s Thomas Lemar.
The Sunday Mirror says Jose Mourinho is ready to take on Arsene Wenger in January and snatch the £92m-rated Monaco star away from Arsenal’s grasp. Whether he’s doing this because he wants the player, or merely because he knows it will annoy his nemesis Wenger, is unclear.
