I can't help but feel envious of Man U. Wenger has historical ties with Monaco, yet United steal a march on us by signing Radamel Falcao from the principality.
To add insult to injury, in some people's eyes, we may end up with Man U's cast-off, Danny Welbeck. Then again, maybe it's not as bad as it sounds.
Welbeck doesn't have the glamour of Falcao, but he'll more than match him for industry. And he has Premier League experience, so should hit the ground running.
And he'll be a lot cheaper, which appears to be the most important thing for Arsenal.
Falcao is on £450k per week, of which Man U have to pay £300k. As well as that, they'll have to pay around £20m to make the deal permanent, if the loan works out.
So my heart may say 'Falcao', but my head agrees that Welbeck is a less risky acquisition.
