For weeks, the chase for this 22-year-old midfielder has been going back and forth with Manchester United and Arsenal vying for his signature, but the latest price hike is just crazy and Arsene Wenger isn’t stupid enough to be ripped off!

Many tabloids considered the tough tackler as a potential replacement for Mathieu Flamini, but at that price, he really won’t be filling those boots. Wenger is a wise investor and, if he is going to break the bank, it won’t be for this guy. Sir Alex also already has a host of players in the position that Veloso would fill, so my guess is that the Portuguese international will not be playing in the Premier League just yet! Do Arsenal or Man United fans feel that this guy is worth even half of this valuation?
