Liverpool legend John Aldridge has accused Chelsea and Arsenal of “taking the p***” this summer!
“While my loyalties have long been clear on the two great clubs of English football, Arsenal and Chelsea have been taking the p**s out of Liverpool and Manchester United with their pursuits of Suarez and Rooney this summer.
“Those deals were never going to materialise and I’m pleased that United and Liverpool treated the offers that came their way with the contempt they deserved. The top clubs don’t sell their best players to domestic rivals – apart from Arsenal, it would appear.” (Sunday World)
Both moves were never on and it seemed the London clubs were trying to force transfers, but United and Liverpool held firm and kept hold of their men.
Which will prove vital over the course of the season
