The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Man Utd are linked with Aaron Ramsey…
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing a stunning swoop for Aaron Ramsey but could face competition from Chelsea for the Arsenal midfielder, according to the Daily Star.
Ramsey has been with Arsenal for almost a decade having snubbed a move to Old Trafford in favour of the Emirates when he left Cardiff City back in the summer of 2008.
The 27-year-old has provided 55 goals and 55 assists in 322 appearances to help the Gunners win 3 FA Cups while he’s also been a key player for the Welsh national team having earned over 50 caps for his country.
However, Ramsey’s long-term future is in doubt as he’s approaching the final year of his contract with Arsenal and the midfielder is no closer to signing an extension with the north London club.
The uncertainty has alerted Premier League rivals as the Daily Star claim Man Utd and Chelsea are both monitoring Ramsey’s situation ahead of potential summer swoops.
The newspaper says Mourinho is planning big changes to his squad this summer following a disappointing campaign and the United boss feels Ramsey could be the man to rejuvenate his struggling side.
Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford has been cast in doubt amid speculation of a rift with Mourinho and the Daily Star suggests United are now weighing-up a stunning move for Ramsey.
However, the Red Devils could face stiff competition from Chelsea as the report says the Blues are also monitoring the Welshman’s situation as Antonio Conte looks to further strengthen his squad this summer.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out but no doubt Arsenal will be keen to avoid losing Ramsey for nothing in 2019 so they may be forced to cash-in this summer if an extension isn’t agreed soon.
We saw in January with Alexis Sanchez that the Gunners will sell to a rival if they have to so Ramsey could be the latest player to leave the Emirates with United and Chelsea ready to pounce.
