Metro have a fair few of our punters looking up in shock here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that Manchester United are now ready to rival Arsenal for Morgan Schneiderlin.
The Southampton midfielder has impressed more and more this season and given Manchester United are crying out for a domineering midfielder like the Frenchman, we think that he could well be the perfect solution for Louis van Gaal.
The news of a potential £25 million bid from United has not gone down well at all with our Arsenal supporting punters.
Our Gooners are angry that firstly their manager could well miss out on yet another one of their top targets and secondly, the fact that they are desperate for a player to come in and really move their side onto the next level – and they think the Saints star can do that.
Schneiderlin has made no secret of the fact that he would push for a move should a bid come in and we think that given Southampton have shown that they will sell players for the right price, this move could well be on!
Manchester United fans. Do you think that Schneiderlin would be a good buy? Have you come around to the idea since the game against the Saints? Let us know your thoughts below.
