Ramsey to share digs with Tottenham player
In our last posting we talked about Carlos Vela and the fact that for the first time since his three year stint he will be living alone, in London, away from his parents.
The same will happen to Spurs bound Giovanni Dos Santos who will also make the move to the capital without his parents who will stay behind with his kid brother who is in Barcelona’s youth academy.
We did, rather jokingly, suggest as the two were mates that they may contemplate sharing digs!
Vela injured and will be living in London, like Santos, alone
Well, the idea of sharing digs with the enemy is about to happen but not necessarily between Carlos Vela and Giovanni Dos Santos (although this may happen after all).
Arsenal’s new young gun Aaron Ramsey, who is said to be a bit shy and quietly-spoken, is great mates with full-back Chris Gunter who joined Spurs last season from Cardiff for £3m.
It is reported that the pair will cross the Spurs-Arsenal north London divide when they share a flat as Ramsey settles into London.
So each day, Ramsey, will head off to Arsenal’s training ground as Gunter leaves for Tottenham’s. Let’s hope that they don’t share training ground secrets!
Another interesting piece of news about this transfer is that Feruson was reported to be livid when he learned of Ramsey’s snub.
I bet he will be even more livid when he reads that even Everton were ahead of Manchester United in Aaron’s list!
This is even more surprising since Aaron is believed to be a Manchester United supporter!
This is according to a friend of his as reported by i-c wales.co.uk
“With Manchester United being his favourite team, I thought there was more of a chance he would join them,” said Thomas Rose, 17, of Bedwellty, Aberbargoed,
