Manchester United Plan Another Move for Arsenal Full-back
After a successful move for Former Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez during the previous transfer window, Manchester United manager José Mourinho is reportedly in a shock move for Gunners full-back Hector Bellerin in the summer.
The Portuguese manager is currently in need of fresh quality at the back of the pitch ahead of next season and he is keeping a close eye on the Spain international.
Bellerin 22, joined the North London club from Barcelona academy in 2011 and has since become one of the best right-backs in the league. He has been ever present in Wenger’s starting eleven this season until he picked up an injury last month.
The Manchester Evening News suggest that United are in talks with Bellerin’s representative over a possible switch to Old Trafford where he will reunite with his former teammate Alexis Sanchez.
Though it might be very hard for the Red Devils to complete his signature in the summer as he still has a contract with Arsenal which will run until the end of 2023-24 season. Apart from being contracted with the Gunners, Wenger is not ready to sell another important member of his squad to José Mourinho irrespective of their contract offer.
The young defender has played 152 matches in all competitions for the Gunners and he is set to cost United nothing less than £30.8million according to transfermarkt.
