Transfer Balls: Arsenal And Manchester United Woo Virgil van Dijk’s Girlfriend From Celtic

by | 6th, September 2014

TRANSFER Balls: Arsenal are going to fight Manchester United and Manchester City for Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk. No, really. We read it in The Metro. Today that paper reports:

Arsenal still keen on January move for Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk

Come again? Arsenal are still keen on buying Virgil van Dijk in January, which is still a few months away? Which begs the question: if they are that keen on him, why didn’t Arsenal buy him in the two-month long transfer window that just shut?

Arsenal are hopeful of sealing a January move for Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk after the Gunners missed out on a transfer deadline day deal.

They did? No. The Mail says they just asked about him at the death:

The Gunners made a deadline day enquiry for the Holland international

But this is the Metro. You can trust the Metro, which reported that van Dijk was on his way to Manchester United, who never did bid for him.
