In what would seem to many Arsenal faithful as a shocking revelation, reports are claiming that Arsenal had in fact concluded a deal to sign former Southampton captain Morgan Schneiderlin ahead of Manchester United.
This report is according to the one Arsenal scout, who has spoken to the Secret Footballer, claimed that Arsenal had a deal for Morgan done and dusted as far back as last winter before Wenger decided against the signing possibly due to the rise to prominence of Francis Coquelin last season.
Wenger’s decision cleared the way for Manchester United to swoop in for the tough tackling French defensive midfielder in the summer and the source added that the boss’ indecisiveness is infact “frightening”.
‘It’s Arsene [Wenger],’ the scout is quoted as saying.
‘He’s so indecisive it’s frightening. We had [Morgan] Schneiderlin done and dusted last January and, by the summer, the gaffer had changed his mind.’
