According to Sport Mediaset (via Express), Mathieu Flamini has attracted interest from clubs in the MLS. The French midfielder is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of the season and there has been no indication that he will be offered an extension to remain at the Emirates Stadium.
The tough-tackling midfielder was linked with a return to Serie A, but now, it’s believed that, Flamini is expected to open talks with a number of MLS sides about a switch to the States.
The 32-year-old is called ‘Billionaire’ as he has previously revealed that he has co-founded a company that has revolutionised the green energy industry, and is making waves in a market worth ‘potentially £20billion’.
- A host of former Premier League players currently ply their trade in America, including Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole.
- The former France international has made just just 16 appearances this season, (12 starting Xl) also in tem fixtures he wan’t included in the squad. And after signing Mohamed Elneny in January it’s pretty clear that the Gunners don’t need him.
- Arsene Wenger has dropped a hint as to what he plans to do this summer regarding transfer business, after admitting that five percent of the players currently on the books at the Emirates Stadium won’t be there next season.
Considering these facts, Gib Football Show concludes that the rumours claiming ‘‘Billionaire’ Is On Verge to Leave Arsenal’ are ‘mostly true’.
