The headline for the post could have meant a lot worse. It could have been Samir Nasri being at Manchester United today to undergo a medical before signing for them. But it is the other French international, Gael Clichy who looks set to finally complete his move from Arsenal to Manchester sit as he arrived at the club today (Monday) to undergo a medical.

Clichy is reported to be headed to Manchester City for £7million after he refused to commit his future to Arsenal by signing a new contract. This is going to be our first big departure of the summer and I hope it does not have a domino effect and Nasri and Fabregas leave.

It is a pity that Clichy has decided to leave Arsenal as he was a good player. We now have to go into the market and sign a new left-back as I do not think Gibbs is ready just as yet to be our first choice. I would love it for Arsenal to now go and sign Baines from Everton.

Clichy has to be careful if his move to Manchester City does go ahead as he may not be guaranteed first team football. Clichy could find himself behind Aleksandar Kolarov in the left-back pecking order at City.

    In the words of Del Boy “Bonjour Clichy”

    Now one more sale or loan arranged and we can bring a player in and start spending some of our transfer kitty which should now be around £52m.

    clichy was a good honest player for arsenal – but arsenal need changes – he hasnt won arsenal any silverwear so not a huge problem – he had good moments but some very poor moments and he is not a reliable defender. Good luck to him though – vermaelen to left back and cahill in at centre back!

    Clichy was great going forward with his speed but defensively poor a lot of the time. Losing the offside line and playing people onside and also guilty of ball watching a lot. Hopefully we can get a good replacement who more defensively astute.

    Thanks for your time at Arsenal enjoy the man city bench.

    It a pity i finally loose him bt any way i wish u bst of luck at city

    Somebody said sorry to Clichy and that he is worth small change.You should understand that Arsenal was forced to sell him or risk losing him for free.What is more, he will earn 90k a week,a better deal compared to what he earns with us.The same reason we lost good players in the past.It would have been better if we were known for buying cheap and paying a good pay cheque.Unfortunately we are buying cheap and paying peanuts,little wonder players prefer to sign with clubs not playing champion league than sign for the Arsenal
