… “won’t be sold this transfer window”
Arsenal seemed really close to sign German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi but now Valencia manager, Pako Ayestaran, dampened the Gunners enthusiam claiming the defender won’t be sold in this transfer window:
“Mustafi is not for sale and will not be leaving the club,” the coach said.
It was rumoured that Mustafi had agreed a move to the Northern London side, with negotiations ongoing over the transfer fee, while Arsene Wenger said over the weekend that a deal “will be done” before the transfer deadline.
However, Mustafi’s £43m buy-out clause now seems likely to prove a major issue in the negotiation.
