Expert – Arsenal star to make Man City this summer as part of Guardiola overhaul


The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have become somewhat used to losing their biggest stars to Manchester City over the years. Prizing big name Gunners to the Etihad has been a sewing motif for the nouveau riche Manchester giants. 

However, while rumours regarding that matter are usually met with an element of fear from those in North London, shoulders have been shrug at the latest report from Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

The notable journalist confirmed in a tweet that he expects Mikel Areta to join old friend Pep Guardiola in Manchester this summer, upon the expiration of his deal at the Emirates.

The current Arsenal skipper was just emerging at Barcelona while Guardiola was an established first-team star with the Blaugrana.

Arteta is widely expected to retire this summer, with both Arsenal and Tottenham thought to be interested in acquiring his services as a coach, though City could pip them to the punch.

Should Arsenal be doing more to keep their former stars on as coaches?
