Yesterday, a close source to Thomas Partey told me the player doesn’t want to extend his stay at Atletico and is favouring a move to the Premiership. And that loves the United link. Deal could even be sooner than expected.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly launched a bid to seal the transfer of Thomas Partey as he’s unhappy with the new contract on offer to him from current club Atletico Madrid.
The Ghana international is one of the finest players in Europe in his position and would be a clear upgrade on the Gunners’ current options in midfield after a difficult season at the Emirates Stadium.
Atletico have been keen to raise that fee to as much as £100m by tying Partey down to a new contract, but the latest is that he’s not prepared to sign the Spanish side’s current offer.
Arsenal fans will hope they can take full advantage and bring Partey to north London as soon as possible.
