to Bayern Munich for £31.5m. That was the amount of the buy-out clause in his contract with Dortmund and the Pep Guardiola has pounced.
Arsenal were ready to pay the same amount, but why oh why can't we 'get our finger out' when it comes to concluding deals. Every missed opportunity makes me long for the days when David conducted our transfer business. Now we have no 'conductor' on the Arsenal transfer bus. Instead, it seems we have 'drivers' determined to make sure targets don't reach destination Emirates!
Ding ding! We need to come out fighting before the window opens officially, it seems.
