Manchester United manager José Mourinho is being linked with numerous midfielders as he is looking for a perfect replacement for his midfield maestro Michael Carrick, who is set to retire by the end of the season.

United are also linked with Toni Kroos signature as part of the club’s mission to bolster their midfield positions ahead of the upcoming season but it remains unknown if they would want to proceed in the race for the German player as they are now switching their attention to the Barcelona man.

Diario Gol further reports that United’s rivals Arsenal are also eyeing a swoop for the former Sevilla player, who has found the back of the net four times in 49 matches he’s played so far this season.

Santi Cazorla

Arsenal legend Santi Cazorla, who plays for Villarreal after returning from his long-term injury, has revealed the reason behind Arsene Wenger’s inability to win many Premier League trophies during his 23-year spell at the Emirates Stadium.

The former Arsenal manager stayed 13 years without winning England’s most precious trophy before he parted ways with the team last season.

The last time Wenger lay hold on the English trophy was in 2004-05 season when he led his players to an unbeaten run to the title. Since then, the Gunners have always settled for a place in the top-four teams.

In his reaction to what was responsible for Wenger’s trophy drought, the 33-year-old midfielder told football Focus that the team lacked self-confidence.

According to the Spaniard, Wenger is a great coach but he didn’t believe in himself neither does he charge his players to trust in their ability to compete with top Premier League clubs for the title.

“To believe that we were capable of competing with the big sides in the Premier League and not just settling for third or fourth.” he said.

Having said that, Cazorla further calls on the Gunners faithful to be patient with Unai Emery’s team. He charged them to support the former Sevilla boss because he has all it takes to lead the team to greatness.

“But everyone really does have to be patient,” he said.

During his six years at the Emirates Stadium, Cazorla helped the Gunners to two FA Cup glories having played more than 200 matches with the team.

Many fans predict that the North London club are not in the running for this season’s Premier League title but Emery is adamant his men stand a chance of winning a silverware just like any other club in the League.

“It is 38 matches for the Premier League season. If it is us or if it is them, that is when we will find out who shows the most quality.” he concluded

Arsenal fans are upbeat about the future, having recorded three wins from five games.

The off-field events happening at the Emirates Stadium is another reason for the club’s faithful joyous mood.

During the week, the Gunners finally confirmed that their long-term CEO Ivan Gazidis would be leaving the club for AC Milan next month and that was a great news for the Gunners fans, who believes the club will now spend big during transfer markets under Stan Kroenke.

Though things are going smoothly for the North London club at the moment, Unai Emery needs to get this player as soon as the January transfer market reopens.

Croatian winger Ante Rebic is the player that’s desperately needed at the Emirates Stadium, should Emery desire to make perfect use of his right wing in the second half of the season.

The 24-year-old is a quality crosser of the ball and that would benefit Lacazette and Aubameyang.

The player’s ability to run at defender and make them commit fouls is another character needed by Emery in his team to succeed.

Henrikh Mktaryan, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi are all great wingers but none of them possesses the ability to bully defenders like Rebic.

The Frankfurt star scored nine goals throughout last season despite playing from the flanks. Though that wasn’t a great stats but none of the Gunners wingers was able to achieve such feat throughout last season.

It remains unknown if the Bundesliga side are ready to release the player in the coming transaction period.
