William Gallas has been baffled by Arsenal’s decision to sign Ben White, with Rafael Varane also in the market and spending just £40m.

Arsenal have spent up to £154 million on reinforcements this summer. But former Arsenal captain William Gallas does not believe Arsenal. Will pay a huge fee to sign with Ben White, up to 50 million pounds, he views that 23-year-old Ben White still has to prove his pace, while Rafael Varane has proven his pace. and then many And is in the player market as well and is worth only 40 million pounds. At this level, he believes Arsenal should have better paced players.

“It’s very difficult for me Arsenal to spend £50m on a player who hasn’t proven that he’s high. While Manchester United could spend around £40m on Rafael Varane, he has won the World Cup and four Champions Leagues,” Gallas told Genting Casino.

“That makes me not understand how this is possible. Maybe it’s because Ben White is British. Listen to me, Varane is a player of a different class than White. He’s still young as I said. He hasn’t proven anything yet. How are you going to price him 50 million pounds?”

“I don’t know him. I respect him and I hope he is a great player. But he still has proven nothing. you compare White and Varane can’t, I’m sorry, but that’s not possible.
