Sir Alex Ferguson has joined the race to sign Theo Walcott according to the Daily Mail. It is thought that Walcott could follow Robin Van Persie in exchanging the Emirates Stadium for Old Trafford in the January transfer window. Arsene Wenger may be willing to sell the winger (Wenger spells it differently now and I don't mean "winker") in order to get something for him rather than lose him for nothing at the end of next season.
Theo Walcott the 23-year-old ex-Southampton player is nearing the end of his contract with Arsenal. Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger has been trying to negotiate an extension to Walcott's contract for some time but the England international is reported to be unhappy with the weekly wage on offer. Apparently he is holding out for a fee close to £100,000 a week. Quite right Theo, I think that sort of money is a perfectly reasonable amount to expect for occasionally being good at your job.
This issue has dogged Wenger and Arsenal recently. The exodus over the last few years must have been very painful especially as they have lost many of their best players to Premier League rivals. Have Arsenal become Manchester United's feeder club?
