On this day: United chase Falcao and Arsenal starlet announces exit

Radamel Falcao

On the 10th March 2013 what were the stories that dominated the football landscape? Including Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

I am casting my eye back to this exact day, the 10th March 2014, but a year earlier.

What were the main tales from that day? What big events were happening in Premier League football?

Here are some of the big scoops from the 10th March 2013…

Angha What?

One of many young players to depart Arsenal last summer made his decision clear this time last year - as Swiss youngster Martin Angha’s pre-contract arrangement with Bundesliga outfit FC Nurnberg was announced.

The teenager had represented Arsenal in the League Cup and the Champions League but in order to get more first-team football he decided to switch to German football.

Currently a regular in the 1.FCN side - he is in the midst of a relegation battle at the club.

But at least he has first-team football - something he would not have got at The Emirates this season.

Bruce Buckons Jose

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck was talking about the potential replacements for interim boss Rafa Benitez - and refused to rule anything out - including a sensational return for Jose Mourinho.

When asked specifically about the potential for Jose Mourinho to return he told reporters:

“I am completely open minded about it.”

In the end Mourinho did return - and is now leading the Blues into the final stages of the Champions League and a Premier League title race.

Good job Mourinho.

Radical Radamel

Manchester United reportedly joined the race to sign Atletico Madrid striking sensation Falcao in a massive deal including Javier Hernandez.

The deal, said to be worth around £47 million, cast fresh doubt over the future of Wayne Rooney - whose United career and relationship with boss Sir Alex Ferguson was looking increasingly tumultuous.

In the end Falcao chose a move to AS Monaco and Rooney stayed - Sir Alex didn’t though.
