Arsenal Sign Mikael Silvestre
Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Manchester United's Mikael Silvestre.
The transfer fee for the deal was not released, but Silvestre did sign a 2 year deal with the Gunners.
Silvestre said, "I've spent a large part of my career at United, the last nine years, and I'll remember that time fondly, but I feel I'm ready for a new challenge."
Silvestre's signing is the first between Manchester and Arsenal since 1974.
