I find it strange too. Can't be bothered to check but maybe most top teams already have a player in his position.at that price and that "reputation", it has been strange to me that Partey has always been linked to Arsenal and Arsenal only for months (from what I have seen)
I mean, United ended 3rd and strengthened their depth with Van De Beek, Telles and Cavani. I fully expect United to outperform Arsenal based on both squads.And why shouldn't they. They have soent more than us and have started well or expectations for him is always less.
You really do create the most depressing threads. First Thiago and now this.
I think he'll be a good signing, top 4 could be the most competitive it's ever been.

Not sure what to make of it to be honest. Arsenal laying off a lot of staff and then spending a lot of dosh on players and contracts. One thing we should praise Woodward for is they haven’t let anybody go, so far.
Fair enough. I just disagree with this idea that Arsenal wanted him all summer but they waited till 10:55 on deadline day to complete the deal? We're being called desperate for signing players in a similar manner.Atletico fans complaining about it too, they're not happy with how Partey was treated.
I agree, they'll probably pair him with Xhaka which while solid is not inspiring. That said, the race for top 4 could be tight and he may be the difference.I’d have been much more jealous if they had gotten Aouar. They aren’t a very creative team so I don’t think Partey is going transform them or anything.
We've only spent 20m more than you this window and with you already having the better team going into the season.Arteta has very little excuse of not finishing in top 4.
Pretty much every United fan will admit we're currently a shambles. Doesn't mean Arsenal haven't been even worse since SAF stepped down. Remind me exactly what you've done?A bit of a lazy assertion...more prejudice than insight
If you want to talk about shambles, I’m more than happy to indulge you...
