Arsenal fan Piers Morgan and Manchester United icon Gary Neville have agreed to a £1,000 charity bet on the outcome of Sunday’s clash between the two sides. The pair enjoyed a back-and-forth on Twitter regarding the Gunners’ title aspirations as they sit top of the Premier League table, culminating in the wager being made.
Morgan urged Mikel Arteta’s side to move for West Ham and England star Declan Rice this summer after five wins from five games to start the season. “If we want to challenge for the title, Arsenal should break the bank for @_DeclanRice,” Morgan tweeted. “Go big or go home..”
Neville was quick to reply and quash claims that Arsenal can challenge for the title this season, having finished 24 points behind champions Manchester City this season. “You’ll get done at Old Trafford Sunday!” Neville wrote. “Forget the title.”
Morgan then offered a wager between the two, while aiming a Prison Break jibe at the former United defender: “Fancy a £1000 bet to charity on that, T-Bag?” Neville accepted by replying “Yep!”, Morgan stated that a draw would result in each of them giving away £500.
