Jose Mourinho eyeing double raid on rivals Arsenal this summer
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is set to make a stunning move for Arsenal’s two key midfield men this summer, with his transfer chest packed with cash – and the knowledge that Arsenal’s players are looking for a way out of the club.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mourinho’s former player, Mesut Ozil are leading his transfer wishlist, and while Arsenal would hate to sell to a rival side, there’s no denying money talks, and plenty of people would claim United and Mourinho are a far more attractive prospect than Arsenal, a club who appear to be going nowhere fast.
Add to that the fact that Ozil is out of contract soon, and there are lingering doubts over the future of Arsene Wenger, and the pieces could be falling into place for the summer deal.
It would of course anger Arsenal fans to the very core, given they’re used to seeing rival clubs buy their best players, and with the fact Mourinho is the man looking to buy, it would add fuel to the fire.
Not to mention the Alexis Sanchez situation, with the forward looking set to leave the club and United one of the many clubs who look interested in buying him.
United are chasing the top four this season, but hope to be title chasing next term, and back in the Champions League, and Mourinho thinks that Ozil and the Ox are key players that will allow him to do this.
