Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are rubbing their hands together with excitement, after it was revealed Jose Mourinho is looking to beat his rivals to a big move.
The Daily Mirror states Manchester United are looking to hijack Arsenal’s move for N’Golo Kante, with the Red Devils preparing to launch a £22m bid that will activate the Leicester City star’s release clause.
Kante, who’s currently on duty with France at Euro 2016, enjoyed a fantastic maiden campaign in the Premier League last term and was a huge influence on Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes, who ended the season as champions of England.
However, Leicester are resigned to losing the midfielder due to his release clause, with a host of interested parties expressing their keenness to sign the 25-year-old, but Jose Mourinho wants him to play the Claude Makelele role at Old Trafford.
That would be a blow to Arsenal, who want to bolster their midfield ranks with the signing, but our landlord believes United will struggle to sign the player due to their lack of Champions League offerings.
United fans, can you beat Arsenal to Kante’s signature? Let us know in the comments below!
