Man United continue scouting Arsenal star despite January rejection

Manchester United are still considering a move for Arsenal star Mathieu Debuchy despite seeing their earlier attempts rejected, Daily Star reports.

The 30-year-old right-back is currently on loan at Bordeaux after losing his regular role to Hector Bellerin following a host of injury problems.

He was a January loan target for United as manager Louis van Gaal looks to add more options to his injury struck back line.

However, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger later came out to admit that he blocked the move as he was not keen to help a direct opponent.

Get French Football News claims that scouts from the Red Devils were present at the Matmut Alantique Stadium, with Debuchy a possible target given previous interest in his services.

In addition to Wenger not letting the France international leave the Emirates in the summer, Van Gaal may need to look elsewhere given that the defender picked up yet another injury.
