The tug-of-war for Aaron Ramsey looks set to be won by Arsenal after Cariff City confirmed on their website that the teenager had his heart set on a move to the Emirates.

To be honest, the whole transfer has dragged on a little and its good to get it over with. True, he will probably be a great player, and under Arsene Wenger that is pretty much definate, but we all understand it would have been one for the future, and I think the youth and exuberance we have in central midfield at the moment is adequate enough.

It is believed that United’s deal was in fact lower than Arsenal’s £5 million bid; but a loan-back next season was the reason Cardiff were so keen on the youngster joining United.

But never mind – I’m not going to begrudge Arsenal for a great buy, as in my opinion £5 million for a player of Ramsey’s potential is a steal – and as I mentioned in a previos article, Ramsey had great choices in both Arsenal and United, as well as Everton.

So, lets look forward to future battles between Ramsey and Anderson and wish Ramsey all the best for the future. Also, let us congratulate Arsenal on a great signing and perhaps now our attention can switch to our main transfer targets….a right-back and an out-and-out striker.
