Arsenal fans are going to dread this happening as they could be in for a real nightmare transfer scenario courtesy of Man Utd in january.
It’s claimed by The Independent that not only does United boss Jose Mourinho want to snap up Mesut Ozil on a free transfer this summer, but he also wants Alexis Sanchez this month.
In turn, the Red Devils could snatch away two of Arsenal’s best players and most influential figures, with both set to see their current contracts expire at the end of the season.
While it’s claimed that Man Utd will swoop for Sanchez this month which will require splashing out on him, Ozil could arrive for free in the summer once his deal runs out but reaching a pre-agreement clearly hasn’t been ruled out.
As a result, this could be a huge move from United to bolster their squad with two world-class players, while it would pile further misery on Arsenal fans who will be disappointed enough by the sight of seeing the pair leave, let alone to join an old rival.
In contrast, it would be a stunning double swoop for Mourinho, as he would address two key issues with his current squad.
A lack of depth and quality beyond Romelu Lukaku up top, and with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata struggling to consistently deliver, creative class from Ozil in the final third would be most welcome at Old Trafford.
