Time is fast running out for the Arsenal and France right back Mathieu Debuchy to find himself a new club before the transfer window closes. In fact Arsene Wenger said this morning that his chance of a permanent move away from the Emirates was no longer possible in the time left.
But there is still time for the defender to get a loan deal at another club, even though the early front runners Aston Villa and Sunderland no longer seem to be in the running. I have read that Arsenal’s demands for a fee and Debuchy’s wages might have been too steep.
However, the Daily Mail is reporting that as well as the French Ligue 1 club Bordeaux, our Premier League rivals Man United are a late entry to the fray. And I think that a loan to Old Trafford could be the ideal move for Debuchy and for Arsenal.
United are desperate for cover after losing five possible full backs to injury and getting Debuchy would definitely help them. Not enough for them to challenge us for the title but perhaps enough to help them take points off our rivals. Man City, Leicester and Tottenham all have to face United, as do we but of course the loan deal would mean Debuchy cannot face us.
So should Wenger do United a favour and perhaps give our title hopes a boost at the same time?
