Morgan Schneiderlin is one of the most talked about players this transfer window, considering the fact that two major English clubs have been reportedly linked with a move for him; with United having already firmed up their interest by making an official offer to Southampton. According to the Daily Mail, the player has stated his desire to leave the St. Mary’s and team up with a club that plays regularly in the Champions League.
Coming off a very impressive season with his club, Southampton, Shneiderlin is said to prefer a move to the Gunners. With several reports in the media reporting that the French international would prefer to work with Arsene Wenger, who is one of the most highly respected managers in his home country, France.
Despite the Mirror’s claim that the 25-year old has already agreed personal terms with United, the Times have come out with a report, which claims that the French international would rather prefer a move to the Emirates to work with Arsene Wenger. The paper’s report, if true, means the Red Devils have a lot to do in terms of convincing the player to move to the Old Trafford this summer. According to the paper, Schneiderlin is said to have told friends that he would prefer a move to the Emirates over Old Trafford.
This could be a major blow for Louis van Gaal, who is shopping for a world-class defensive midfielder to replace Michael Carrick, whose contribution to the team has reduced in the last two seasons.
