Insider: Man United very keen on England international, club could be open to sale

Oddly enough, the (otherwise miserable) Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern appear to be quite happy following reports from Bleacher Report that Manchester United are ready to pounce on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should he leave the club this summer.

The England international hasn’t progressed as many would liked over the near enough half a decade he’s spent with the Gunners, with frustrations appearing to reach boiling point prior to his injury against Barcelona.

As a result, he’s been linked with moves to West Ham United and Liverpool over the course of the summer, with a major reboot expected at the Emirates following another failed title challenge.

It is claimed that the Red Devils are asking to be informed as to his situation over the course of the summer, ready to pounce should they decide to sell.

His £52,000 a week wages are not thought to prove to be much of an issue for the club as they bid to land a young homegrown player with obvious talent, though his career has stalled.

Louis van Gaal recently conceded his team needed more pace, something the former Southampton youngster provides in abundance.

Are Man United right to place so much interest in the Ox? Will he forever be deemed an Arsenal reject?
