ARSENAL are pressing ahead with plans for a mid-season break in Dubai despite the political unease in the Middle East.
Manchester United have scrapped a planned trip to Qatar because of increased security fears in the region due to Iran and the USA standing on the brink of war.

He confirmed: “We have talked about different options in this mid-season break to go away from here and live together in a different environment with better weather conditions.
“We still have a few things to look at from a club perspective and the security decision will be the priority.
“If we are advised by the people making those decisions that’s not safe, we won’t be going anywhere.”
