I am sure that most Arsenal fans have been watching on and having a right old laugh about Raheem Sterling and the transfer saga involving the young England international, his club Liverpool and the chasing Man City. I even wrote an article the other day about how the ongoing wrangle was good for the Gunners because it was bad for all the parties involved.
So when I saw the transfer rumours today declaring that the deal was going to be done and that Man City would be paying almost £50 million for Sterling, I was a little bit disappointed that it would not be dragging on but I was not too concerned that our rivals from Manchester had just made a brilliant move that would significantly reduce Arsenal’s chances of the title.
It seems like a crazy price to pay in my opinion, but I have just read a connected story by Metro that did send a shiver down my spine. They claim that Liverpool are going to use the Sterling money to fund a transfer bid for Marco Reus.
This be a brilliant signing for Brendan Rodgers, in my opinion, because Reus is by far the better player than Sterling. It would also mean that the Borussia Dortmund and Germany star would not be coming to play for Arsenal and I have been desperate for Arsene Wenger to sign Reus for well over a year now. I reckon he would be a perfect fit for the Gunners and I will be gutted if he joins Liverpool. How about you?
