Arsenal have been linked with a whole host of players throughout the summer but one of the most unlikely names to have been mentioned is Manchester United’s defender Mikaël Silvestre.
The 31-year-old has played over 249 games for the Premier League and Champions League winners and the media have today linked him with a move to the club.
Silvestre was reportedly undergoing a medical at bitter neighbours Man City when his agent phoned him to say that Arsenal had an interest in him.
According to unreliable British newspaper The Sun, Mikaël immediately abandoned the medical and hurtled down the M1 to meet Gunners boss Wenger and discuss terms.
Would Arsene Wenger really go for an injury-prone defender who’s pay packet is expected to be as high as £50k? Or maybe somebody saw Gunners’ target Gokhan Inler go into Arsenal’s London Colney training ground and mistook him for lookalike Silvestre?!
