Ben White should go to a bigger club than Arsenal, Danny Mills claims as the former England defender says Manchester United should have targeted a £50m central defender instead of Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane

  • Danny Mills ‘surprised’ England defender Ben White comes to Arsenal
  • Former England defender Mills says White should have joined a bigger club
  • Mills thinks United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have targeted White

Danny Mills is ‘amazed’ Ben White has decided to move to Arsenal because he is ‘better than that’ and Manchester United should have made a move for the defender.

The 23-year-old centre-back, who was part of England’s squad for Euro 2020, will join Arsenal after the Gunners agreed a £50m deal with Premier League rival Brighton.

But former England defender Mills says White should have joined a bigger club than the Gunners.

And Mills believes Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have focused on White rather than Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.

Mills told talkSPORT: “The only thing I’m surprised about is that Ben White has gone to Arsenal.

“Let’s assume he will be at Arsenal for at least two or three years before he goes elsewhere. I just think he’s better than that.”

When asked why White would join another club, Mills replied, “Because he has a better chance of winning things. What will he win at Arsenal? League Cup, if he’s lucky. Maybe the FA Cup.

“I think he’s an exceptional player and I think he’s a fantastic asset to Arsenal. I’m a little surprised that Manchester United, who are looking for a central defender, didn’t fill in for him.”
