Manchester United join race to sign £25m Arsenal transfer target

Manchester United are believed to have joined the race to sign £25m Arsenal target Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, Express reports.

The 25-year-old was a top candidate to join the Gunners during the summer, but the Saints blocked his move as he is now fast becoming one of their key midfielders.

Schneiderlin was on top form during the 1-0 away victory over United, ending the team’s 27 year wait to pick up all three points at Old Trafford, prompting Red Devil’s legend Gary Neville to heap praise on the Frenchman.

He said: “I think he could play at any of the top clubs in the league, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United or Arsenal – he’s showed his quality this season.

“You looked at Schneiderlin and [Jose] Fonte at Old Trafford, there was no sweat on them. They were composed and organised.”

With Louis van Gaal likely to miss out on Serie A duo Paul Pogba of Juventus and Kevin Strootman of Roma, a move for Ronald Koeman’s powerhouse midfielder could be another possibility.
