Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could make a shock move to Manchester United this summer, according to talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook.
The Lowdown: Ox set to leave
The 28-year-old looks highly likely to leave the Reds before the start of next season, having dropped way out of favour under Jurgen Klopp, despite being hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Rio Ferdinand.
Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t play a single minute of action in the last couple of months of 2021/22, suggesting there is no future for him at Anfield.
The midfielder’s current deal expires next summer, meaning this is the last chance for Liverpool could receive a good amount of money for his services.
The Latest: Journalist makes shock claim
According to talkSPORT‘s Crook, United are ‘contemplating’ making a shock move for Oxlade-Chamberlain, as they look to bolster their options moving forward.
If the Reds are willing to accept an offer of £10million, it is claimed that their bitter rivals would attempt to sign him.
The Verdict: Surely not?
It would be a huge shock if Oxlade-Chamberlain opted to join United this summer, given the rivalry that exists between the two clubs throughout history.
His legacy would be tarnished by doing such a thing, as Michael Owen has shown in the past, while Liverpool will also surely be looking for more than £10million for their player.
