“All the leading football players of the Europe Championships are under our spotlight. From the perspective of building a team, you should definitely involve players of such level. It’s clear that he has been transferred from the Manchester United to Arsenal, has a currently operating contract and is at the peak of his training. He is 30 years old, and given his physical condition, he can easily play until the age of 35, like Aleksandr Anyukov, Yuri Zhirkov play in our club.
