Alexandre Lacazette is ready to reject a move to Arsenal in order to join arch-rivals Manchester United, according to reports.
Arsenal are long-time admierers of Lacazette and have tried to sign him on several occasions in the past.
Last summer, Arsenal had a £35m bid for the striker rejected by Lyon as the French giants were not interested in selling the striker. However, things have changed since then and the French club are now willing to sell the forward.
Reports claim Arsenal are in search of a striker and Lacazette features highly on Weneger’s wish list but we are set to face disappointment in the race for his signature.
Jose Mourinho wants to sign a replacement for Ibrahimovic and had lined up a move for Greizmann – another Arsenal target but with the Atletico forward now set to stay at the Vincente Calderon, Man Utd have turned their attention to Lacazette.
And a report in The Metro claims Lacazette will join Man Utd instead of Arsenal
Obviously the appeal of playing Champions League football with Man Utd appeals more to the player.
However, I think Lacazette should be careful when making a decision because he will fit into Arsenal’s style of play more than that of Manchester United. Hence, the Emirates would be the best destination for him but you know in football, it doesn’t really work that way.
