Arsenal whiz Sunu reveals Chelsea, Man Utd offers

Arsenal's summer signing Gilles Sunu has revealed he rejected offers from Chelsea and Manchester United to join the Gunners this year.

"When I played for Chateauroux there was interest from Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona, AC Milan," Sunu told Arsenal.com. "I chose Arsenal because Arsenal make careers for a lot of young players. It's a great, great, great club - my favourite in the world, the team I support.

"But it was a very, very hard decision. I waited two years to take this decision but now I'm very happy I have because it is a great club."

The 16 year-old Frenchman added: "Arsene Wenger played a big part in me coming here," said Sunu. "He is French of course and it is easier for me to take his advice.

"I would like to play for his first team if it's possible. It's my dream, so that has to be my target."
