Recent news which has broken within the last few hours is not generous to Arsenal fans. After beating them to the Premier League title, Manchester City plans to beat the Gunners to their main transfer target this summer, Declan Rice.
We reported earlier that Manchester City had planned to put together a financial package to lure West Ham midfielder away from Arsenal. Indeed, after dissecting that financial package, a big journalist thinks that West Ham would be more tempted by Pep’s offer than Arteta’s offer.
Manchester City’s offer for Declan Rice beats Arsenal
Despite Man City offering £75m +£15m add ons which is the same amount which Arsenal had rejected yesterday, the package is much better overall.
As per Di Marzio, the instalment plan is much kinder in the Man City offer, and the bonuses which are included within the add ons are much more achievable. Therefore, West Ham might feel more security they’ll get their money with City’s plan, as opposed to Arsenal’s.
What works in Arsenal’s favour, though, is that they plan to bid again. Having recently been rejected for the same amount of money, it is more than likely that Arteta plans to bid more than City just have. However, Arteta must consider this bid and be MUCH more efficient in his next bid.
Do you think Declan Rice will join Arsenal or Manchester City?
