Done Deal: Manchester United lose out to Arsenal in race to sign highly-rated ace

wengerArsenal fans have got even more exciting news to be buoyant about today here in the Transfer Tavern. After a boozy day yesterday watching their team beat Chelsea 1-0 in the annual season curtain raiser, the community shield, today there is some excellent transfer news!

With Petr Cech putting in an inspired performance at Wembley, today The Daily Express are reporting about the arrival of another goalkeeper to the Emirates.

Joao Virginia, at just 15-years-old has reportedly signed a 4 year deal to bring him to the Premier League club and leave behind his current side, Benfica.

At such a young age he is surely one for the future, and the Daily Express claim that Wenger beat off fierce competition from Manchester United to pen the teenager.

A large group of Gooners over by the dartboard here in the Transfer Tavern feel that this could turn out to be an astute purchase for the future, but they all admit you can’t judge too much about a player at the age of 15!

What do you think Arsenal Fans? Is this what you need? Will he be a star for Arsenal in the future? What did you make of Petr Cech yesterday? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
