Forget this deal unai? £30 million winger Carrasco hits out as move to Arsenal close
Yannick Carrasco has criticised Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang for handing him a suspension, amid talk he is all set to sign for Arsenal.
Carrasco has been in the headlines for months now since the January window, after he almost secured a big money move to sign for Arsenal.
However, a move did not materialise as the Chinese club did not want to sell one of the most prized assets. Despite the fact that he admitted that a move back to Europe is what he wanted.
But all the talk in the media has suggested that he will indeed make that big money move to the Emirates in the coming days, with a £30 million deal being finalised between the two clubs.
And now, amid all the speculation, Carrasco was told to apologise to the team and ordered to stop training after missing Dalian’s trip to Hebei China Fortune.
“The attitude of some club’s leaders and team-mates towards me is incomprehensible to me given my commitment and performance with the team so far,” Carrasco wrote on Twitter.
“The team needs me and I want to help the team. This problem needs to be solved.”
If Carrasco wants to leave the club and come back to Europe, then the best thing that the Chinese club can do is let him leave, as he will bring a downer on the dressing room.
However, Arsenal SHOULD NOT be the club that bring him back to Europe, especially for £30 million.
Unai Emery is only expected to have around £45 million to splash on new players, unless he sells some of his biggest players, and that money should be spent on improving the back-line.
The Gunners conceded 51 goals in the Premier League, costing them a chance to play Champions League football next season and ultimately, trophies.
Carrasco netted less than ten goals last season for the Chinese side and that is simply not good enough for a player that will take up most of the Gunners transfer budget, especially as the Chinese League is far less superior than the Premier League.
The right answer would be Emery to forget about Carrasco, sell a few ‘fringe players’ and bring in some top level defenders.
But how many time have Arsenal gone with the wrong answer in the transfer window?
