Arsenal will have to set its sights elsewhere in its quest for a quality midfielder as their ambitions for Morgan Schneiderlin it has been reliably gathered has been truncated.
The midfielder is to undergo a medical at Manchester United on Monday 29th of June according to reports by The Sun.
The man who has been instrumental to Southampton’s giant strides is expected to complete his £24 million switch and become United’s second signing of the summer, following the earlier signing of Memphis Depay.
The French man had heavily been linked with Arsenal as reports had it that Arsenal had stolen a march on other suitors and were favourites to land him. However, despite Southampton’s hopes of keeping the player for at least another season, it is united who have been able to convince the player to switch St Mary’s for old Trafford.
Schneiderlin without a doubt is a quality player, the kind of player that Louis van Gaal has always yearned for. His style and quality will ensure that United’s attacking talent flourish well.
The past three years has seen him maintain a consistency that has attracted several suitors his way. Arsenal’s loss is United’s gain and now will have to look elsewhere in the quest for a quality midfielder.
