Manchester United set to make a move for Arsenal midfielder 0

Posted on March 20, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho could make a summer move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales midfielder will have just 12 months left on his contract this summer. The Gunners hierarchy are reportedly looking to avoid another contract wrangle resulting in losing a player for less than his actual value, like the Alexis Sanchez situation in January.

Ramsey likely to want a wage rise

The clubs reluctance to get into another Sanchez situation could lead to selling the star in the summer, rather than losing him for absolutely nothing the following summer.

Wenger vs. Mourinho – from the touchline to the ring 0

Picture the scenario. We’re at WrestleMania in front of 80,000 screaming fans, mainly made up of middle-aged men, all awaiting the grudge match main event between two goliaths of the sport. Wenger always falls short against the mighty José, despite the Frenchman constantly reinventing himself in an attempt to best his rival. It’s like a rubbish Stone Cold vs The Rock, basically.

Ladies and gentleman, this contest is a ‘No Disqualification’ match set for one fall. Introducing first from Strasbourg, France, weighing in at about the equivalent of 1,000 cocktail sticks, ARSENE WENGER. His opponent, from Setúbal, Portugal, the most miserable man on planet earth, JOSÉ MOURINHO.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is close to joining his side from Arsenal despite the Chilean training with Arsene Wenger and his team ahead of this weekends games.

Reports have been constantly circulating this week as the proposed transfer of Alexis Sanchez edges ever closer. The forward had initially been linked with his former manager at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola and a move to Manchester City, but that deal did not come to fruition.

Instead, Manchester United have become frontrunners, with Jose Mourinho’s side clear favourites to sign the star. In fact, news arose that former-Borussia Dortmund player Henrikh Mkhitaryan would be used in a switch for the player.

Mesut Ozil is reportedly eyeing up a switch to Premier League rivals Manchester United as the German midfielder looks to leave Arsenal to link back up with manager Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal were held to their second draw in two games as West Ham clung on to claim another point, meaning they have taken four points from their last two games against Chelsea and Arsenal.

Things appear to be getting rather complicated in the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga.

The Chilean superstar had been pursued by Manchester City throughout the summer transfer window but the Citizens’ £60 million attempt ended up being unsuccessful since Arsenal failed to sign a replacement before the end of the window.

Pep Guardiola was left frustrated with Arsenal’s apparent incompetence and is expected to make a fresh approach in order to land the 28-year-old in January. However, the situation appears to has changed dramatically as the Manchester City boss is now facing competition from his fierce rival Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial responded to the news of his alleged transfer request this summer, claiming talk of him asking to leave the club to join Arsenal is “false. Reports came out early in the morning that Martial spoke to his manager to push for a move to Arsenal this summer. But it appears such claims weren’t true.

The 21-year-old, who signed from AS Monaco for £26m in 2015, nevertheless endured a difficult season at United. Martial lost his starting place in the side and was singled out for criticism by manager Jose Mourinho as a result of his inconsistency.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay around £40million for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to the Daily Mail.

Any move for the young Frenchman will depend on whether the Gunners can nab Monaco’s star striker Kylian Mbappe, which seems unlikely as most of Europe’s top teams are interested in signing the wonderkid.

Out of favour at United

Martial has not quite lived up to his potential since arriving at the club from Monaco in the summer of 2015 for a fee that could eventually reach an eye-watering £57.6 million.

Arsenal and Manchester United lock horns in the Premier League on Sunday, fighting for a top-four spot, in a game difficult to call given the hosts are strong in their own backyard while the visitors seldom drop points on the road.

Both sides are desperate for a result as their hopes of a Champions League place hang in the balance this season, but how have recent head-to-heads between the two sides gone?

Arsenal challenge for a top-four finish this season faces a major test on Sunday afternoon as the Gunners host fellow Champions League hopefuls Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will rotate his squad. However, the Red Devils will be no pushovers for the Gunners. The visitors are currently in the midst of a 25 game unbeaten run in the English top-flight.

They are also a dangerous team on their travels, having gone 11 games unbeaten in the Premier League away from Manchester. The fact that Arsenal have suffered just one home defeat in their last 15 Premier League outings and two league all seasons makes this clash an intriguing one.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed to BBC Sport that he will rest some of his players for this Sunday’s visit to Arsenal. The announcement will no doubt be music to the ears of everybody connected with the north London club.

Mourinho is quoted by BBC Sports as saying: “The players that have accumulated lots of minutes are not going to play next weekend,”

The Portuguese boss is obviously prioritising winning the Europa League over the Red Devils charge for a Champions League spot. The Red devils won their Europa League semi-final 1-0 against Celta Vigo on Thursday, with the next leg at Old Trafford next Thursday night.
