There has been a running joke about Manchester City sourcing players from Arsenal that has been going on for some time. Looks like the trend is set to continue.
According a report from Mirror, Mikel Arteta has decided to join Pep Guardiola at Manchester City in the summer. The 34 year old will leave the club and several Premier League clubs have shown interest in him. Tottenham Hotspurs is one of them but the saving grace for the Gunners fans is that the Spaniard has decided not to join the North London rivals and chosen Manchester City instead.
There are also news that Arteta may join Manchester City as he will eventually become the assistant coach for Pep Guardiola and that may have been the icing on the cake for the midfielder. On the contrary he had received an offer from Arsenal to be in charge of the academy. Obviously the assistant manager position was the clear winner.
