Transfer News: Marcel Desailly believes that the Gunners or the Red Devils are the best clubs for Yann M’Vila

Former Chelsea captain Marcel Desailly has called on either Arsenal or Manchester United to sign Rennes star Yann M’Vila.

The 21-year-old midfielder has been linked with a move to the Gunners for some time and it was alleged that manager Arsene Wenger made a bid for him last summer.

“I would just say that if I was the chairman of a Premier League club I would just close my eyes and put the figure on the cheque to get him,” Desailly said.

“Arsenal is probably a stable club where he can have a bit of time or [Manchester] United where he has time to assimilate the changing of clubs and start slowly to perform.

“He needs to come to the Barclays Premier League. We want him in this competition because it is the best, first of all, and he can really develop his skills. It is for players who like to play with tempo.

“You can see by the way he gets the ball, control and passes straight away. Long ball, short ball. He has that sort of rhythm that the Barclays Premier League is demanding.”

M’Vila has made 36 appearances for the French club this season, scoring once.
