My exclusive deep dive into the biggest transfer headlines, featuring Marko Arnautovic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and more.
Manchester United made the right decision on Marko Arnautovic
A deal that came slightly out of nowhere and fell through just as quickly - here’s my understanding of what happened with the Marko Arnautovic saga:
Arnautovic is appreciated by Erik ten Hag because he has known him since his time at Twente, but Manchester United after a £7m opening bid have decided to leave the negotiations due to the high cost and the complaints of the fans.
Bologna expected United to submit a new bid for Arnautovic, but there was a very negative response to the deal and this clearly filtered through to the club.
In my opinion, Man United have made the right decision because the expectations are on other players and - with all respect - not on Arnautovic.
