French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin since 2008 is playing for Southampton FC and has recently stated that he would like to play his next season in the Champions League.
That was a reason that the English giants go in a hunt to capture him, and the most persistent was Arsenal.
It’s suggested that the 25-year-old Southampton star, Schneiderlin could replace St Mary’s with the Emirates, and then Manchester United joined the hot pursuit for the French midfielder.
French Canal Plus brings the news that the club from Old Trafford in a few last days “aggressively” went after the 25-year-old Frenchman, and now has a better position for his signature.
The compensation to Southampton should be around 35 million euros.
“Every player I am offered, Man Utd are already on his case,” said Arsenal boss Wenger recently. It seems that this that’s true.
