Man United to rival Arsenal for €100m French worldwide

Monaco sold Martial to meet FFP rules but did not need to with Lemar says Vasilyev

But as explained by vice-president Vadim Vasilyev, the club merely money to comply with Financial Fair Play rules after a number of years of big-spending.

It's of little surprise Monaco were able turn down the deadline-day offer after they generated a staggering £329.3 million in player sales over the summer after moving on the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko, per MailOnline's Harry Slavin. We are, currently, financially safe and sound.

As a result, some Gunners fans may be surprised to learn that the 21-year-old attacker is ready to move to the north London club despite rejecting Arsenal last month. "You've got to accept the risk (to then sell someone at a lower price the next time round) and it's by taking risks that we have got here".

By the looks of it, Arsenal will probably be most desperate to sign Thomas Lemar, but where the player ends up remains to be seen.

I was looking to stand and trade punches with him but when I felt that I could control his weight, I chose to go with that. Johnson was looking to set the UFC record for consecutive title defenses, as he is now tied with Anderson Silva.

"Sales, they are the effect of having a great season, the league title, a great manager and an excellent recruitment cell and scouting network", Vasilyev continued.

"So what? We are not looking for records", Vasilyev said when asked about why Lemar and Fabinho were denied summer moves, as quoted by the Express. We want to maintain a competitive team while respecting our economic model.

Arsenal had agreed to sell the Chilean to Manchester City, providing that they could sign Lemar before the deadline. And today, we've managed it. Many other European clubs have reaped the benefits of this system but it seems like the Ligue 1 side are more eager to hold onto some of their star players from now on.
