Manchester United are reportedly planning a shock bid to sign Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
According to the Mirror, Chamberlain is a target of Jose Mourinho and the Old Trafford boss is lining up a summer move for the England international.
It is claimed the former Chelsea boss who reportedly wanted to sign the winger when he was at Chelsea is keen to spend up to £30m to get his man this summer.
Man United want to strengthen its midfield and wide options this summer and sees Chamberlain who can play in both position as the perfect signing.
The Portuguese tactician who happens to be Wenger’s archrival will use our boss’ long standing interest in Chris Smalling to pursue a move for Chamberlain.
Chamberlain is yet to secure a regular sport at Arsenal and has only managed to score three Premier league goals since the beginning of last season but Mourinho believes he is being under utilized at the Emirates and would fit into his plans better at Old Trafford.
It is very unlikely that Arsenal would sell a player to a direct rival like Man Utd with Wenger in charge. So I think the possibility of this move happening depends heavily on the future of our manager.
Well, Chamberlain’s contract at Arsenal expires at the end of next season and there is every possibility he would be moved on but not to a rival club.
