United allow Silvestre moves to Arsenal
Arsenal have just sign Mikael Silvestre from Manchester United for a fee is not disclosed. The French defender has been sidelined for most of last season due to injury before returning to action in March. Mikeal has been linked to move away from Old Trafford this summer and the likes of Manchester City Roma and Bordeaux have expressed their interest to the former Inter defender.
Roy Keane side Sunderland have also been linked with Silvestre but United have allowed him to play in London with rival Arsenal in a surprise step from United directors.
Silvestre signed from Italian champion Inter Milan in 1999 and made nearly 250 appearances for the club.
Silvestre will now try to find his best form at the Emirates Stadium and he will be challenging Gael Clichy for who will start as a left back after signing a two-year contract with the Gunners.
Most United fans believe that Silvestre should stay for a year, to complete 10 years with the club which would see United playing an extra testimonial game for him, and also to be a backup for players like Evra and Vidic till United find another backup for next season.
Thanks Mikeal, but we do not wish you best of luck with ARSENAL 😉
