A shockwave has left the bar-stool-experts in the Transfer Tavern speechless after the proverbial transfer rumour mill churned out a sensational story.
It’s heaven for the Manchester United fans. Hell for the Arsenal ones.
According to French publication Le 10 Sport, incoming Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is keeping tabs on Arsenal star Laurent Koscielny ahead of a potential summer move.
The Frenchman is the beating heart of the Gunners’ backline and one of the few truly solid defenders the club have to call on.
Though Chris Smalling has improved immensely at Old Trafford, the Red Devils have struggled to find a formidable enough partner for him, though Daley Blind has impressed.
Any deal to bring the Les Blues international to the Theatre of Dreams would likely rock the landscape of the Premier League, though it has been done between the two clubs before.
Back in 2012, the Manchester giants prized Robin van Persie away from North London, a move that helped them win the league title.
Still, much has changed since then, though the report claims the former Lorient man is seeking a new adventure.
Who will finish higher next season, Mourinho or Wenger?
