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.

Arsenal will be EPL champs this year.

On a more serious note, Chelsea looks scary this year.

Haha, Arsenal might have a chance...

I really think that Chelsea has had the most talented team in the EPL for the past few years now, however they have never been able to put it together.

However, if Deco can continue to play the way he did in the 1st game, and Drogba and Ballack get back on form, Chelsea will have a crazy amount of scorers.
