[VIDEO] Man Utd & Arsenal Target £15M ‘German Messi’

By on April 11, 2011

Manchester United and Arsenal are currently fighting with each other for the Premier League title, but come the summer transfer window, they will apparently be fighting for a player labelled as the “German Messi”.

The 22 year-old German midfielder, Marko Marin currently plays for Werder Bremen in the Budesliga, where he can perform as an attacking midfielder and winger. He joined Werder Bremen in June of 2009 from Borussia Mönchengladbach and was even included in the German World Cup squad in 2010, making two appearances against both Australia and Serbia.

He isn’t a prolific goalscorer, with only four goals this season for Werder, but his contribution is more through his assists – 6 this season and 14 last season – troubling the defenders and making chances.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been linked to bringing the exciting forward to the Premier League in the past, and now United are reportedly ready to ‘intensify’ their interest, and make a move for Marin.

The player has unfortunately been accused of lacking strength on the ball and going down easily in a challenge, but as can be seen below, he has a special quality, especially in his dribbling ability and could be the spark who could light up United next season from a reported £15 million offer.

Tell me what you think!

    If Kronke comes in we should be able to compete in the transfer market again.

    Why is it everyone rates this fella with his poor assists and goal ratio, yet Arshavin 10 goals and 18 assists this season is being hounded out? We just love making a scapegoat in this country!!

    not likely…midfield is packed, Wilshere, ramsey, nasri, Rosicky, cesc, Even selling cesc we have enough. we need a left winger…arshavin is better coming off the bench.

    Then again we could have a massive sale and buy new players.

    sell cesc to my barcelona, draft Arshavin to that position 4 wilshere’s sake and buy hazard to run down the flanks(left+right) prepare THEO 4 more fw role, get either SAHKO/VERTOG…/ SAMBA/CAHIL(Prefared if he command the back line well) bring JD 2 MF
    EMPLOY 4-4-”RVP”-1

    Actually two wingers who can put over crosses for Chamakh and Bedtner all season ,every match and
    defend properly without losing concentration so often and another defensive midfielder in the Alex Song mould ?

    Peter Hill-Wood is 100% right. there are some who think lets just buy big players and try to buy the throphies, but is that not like paying off a teacher to gets the grades you want!

    Yet no one gives credit to Arsene for building a team Consistently in the top 4 and with most of the first team players costing less than £7million each. It always “Arsenal havent won a throphy” well neither have 15 other teams in the league!!! Its been 5 years for Liverpool too, media dont seem to comment on that!
