Actually mate, honestly, I think we would have no problem getting some money for the lad. It depends on your interpretation of a top rank team. If you mean Chelsea = no, City = no but PSG might be daft enough to give us big money. Then, when he's played a few games they will realise that he has this fantastic ability......to lose the ball!! Ashley can be so frustrating, especially when you compare him (and Nani) to Old Reliable, Antonio Valenica. Now he is a lovely player, skilful, works his hind off and never complains.
Ashley could do it, if only he wasn't so wasteful. He did play quie well against City though. Perhaps, in his desperation, Wenger would swap Walcott for him. Mind you, he can be a headless chicken when he wants to be.
Ashley is a good player but not what most of us would call 'a United player'. Wouldn't it be nice if the lad were to go on and prove me wrong.
