Let me cut to the chase. Rafinha has been offered to Arsenal for anything above €30m.
And I say no.
I don’t think he’ll be an improvement on Ramsey or Özil…
Wait, can anyone right now be an improvement on Özil?
He’s not an improvement on Alex Oxlade Chamberlain either (seeing as The Ox has refused to sign a new contract) as The Ox is quite versatile and can play in places Rafinha can’t play. He’s also got the speed Rafinha hasn’t got.
Sky reports that the attacking midfielder has not travelled to the United States with the rest of the team as he is recovering from a knee injury. He is the younger brother of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
Another thing I feel rightly miffed about is how these big clubs peddle us their cast-offs – Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck…
Ozil and Sanchez have come good though and Welbeck is on the up now he’s injury free.
