"I'm told..." - Romano reveals transfer U-turn involving Arsenal
Man City are unlikely to do more business with Arsenal in the transfer market after the recent summer window, according to reports.
And prominent journalist Fabrizio Romano has made a further claim, following rumours that the Citizens did not want to sell any more of their players to the Gunners.
The two players, particularly Jesus, have been important in helping the Gunners to top the Premier League, a position they will hold on Christmas Day for the first time since 2007.
Now, Romano has provided more clarity on the report.
Romano comments on City/Arsenal transfer plans
Speaking as part of his CaughtOffside transfer column, Romano poured cold water on claims that this is a concrete plan from City, but did state that it would make perfect sense.
He said: "I'm aware there's been some interesting speculation about Manchester City not wanting to sell players to Arsenal anymore, after the success they've had since Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko joined in the summer.
"I'm told nothing has been decided internally on this. But, of course, after Gabriel and Zinchenko performances, it's quite normal that they don't want to keep selling players to the same club."
As a result, it appears that no more business will be done between the two clubs - certainly in terms of City's first team stars.
Whether this is a strategy that is indeed implemented remains to be seen, but Arsenal will be delighted to have picked up two City players to help them in their title charge this season.
