Man Utd identify ‘perfect’ £26m midfielder as a ‘cheap’ option

Man Utd have identified their ideal midfield target for the summer transfer window, according to a report in Uruguay.

The Red Devils brought in Donny van de Beek – who has only made three Premier League starts all season – in the summer transfer window, with .

With Bruno Fernandes playing almost every game for the Red Devils, Van de Beek has found playing time tough to come by and there are now rumours that Man Utd could go back into the market for yet another midfielder.


Solskjaer likes to play Fred and Scott McTominay at the base of his midfield and reports now claim Man Utd are looking at improving their options in that position.

Traspasos (via Sport Witness) reckonMan Utd are ‘looking for’ a defensive midfielder and that their search has arrived at Getafe’s door.

It is reported that Getafe midfielder Mauro Arambarri is ‘closely followed’ by the Premier League outfit and that the club’s board see him as ‘a perfect option’ to improve Solskjaer’s side.

They regard Arambarri as ‘cheap and good’ with the La Liga midfielder only likely to set them back €30m (£26m).

The Uruguay international has played 33 times, scoring three goals, for Getafe this season with the club sitting just outside the relegation zone in 16th.

Solskjaer has admitted that Man Utd need to strengthen this summer if they are to catch Man City after .

“If you want to take up the challenge with them, of course, we need to strengthen our squad,” Solskjaer told .

“Congratulations to them. They’ve had a fantastic season.

“I’m very pleased with my boys because they’ve made it into the last 10 days of the season with a Man City team ahead of us that are lauded as the best in Europe.

“We’ve done well but we want to take the next step and it might be that we need a couple more to have a stronger squad.”

Asked in the post-match press conference if he knows the areas he wants to improve, Solskjaer said: “That’s a long process and we know what we want to do.

“First of all, congratulations to Man City for winning the league, very worthy champions. We’ve got to hold our hands up and say that.

“But that’s where we want to be and we’re not there yet. They’ve put the bar where it is and that’s up to us now to take the next step.”

Jordan blasts ‘joke football club’ Arsenal and AFTV

Simon Jordan thinks Arsenal have become “a joke football club” while he also had a go at AFTV over their YouTube channel.

The Gunners brought in Mikel Arteta part way through last season with the Spaniard guiding them to FA Cup glory, while their performances started to convince Arsenal fans that he could be the man for the job.

12 months later and there are now doubts in the fanbase over whether Arteta can take the club forward with the Gunners sitting eighth in the Premier League table.


If they miss out on Europe, which looks extremely likely, it will be the first time in 25 years that Arsenal have failed to qualify for a European competition.

On top of that, the fans – who have been unhappy with Stan Kroenke’s ownership of the club for years – have been protesting after Arsenal were one of six Premier League clubs who .

The owners later apologised but that hasn’t stopped angry Arsenal fans from gathering outside the Emirates Stadium before matches to protest their ownership.

And Jordan claims that Arsenal are now only a “big club in image and reputation” with .

Jordan said on : “The fact of the matter is that despite the advancing of the thought that Mikel Arteta was going to be a good manager, by people like me… I’m beginning to think that’s unwinding.

“But I also think the reason for that is that Arsenal are a joke football club right now, in lots of ways.

“They’ve got an owner who is disengaged, an owner that’s happy with mediocrity. They’ve got a director of football who I don’t think is pulling up any trees, and they’ve gone for a manager who sounds good on paper, but when it comes down to it, I’m not sure he’s got the chops to do what Arsenal need him to do.

“Arsenal have just gone in a self-appointed organisation of the top six clubs… but they’ve worked their way backwards in the league and they are now a big club in image and reputation alone, because they are not a big club in any other department right now.”

Jordan added: “I don’t have an agenda against Arsenal. The simple facts are they are eighth in the league, out of the Europa League losing to a manager you thought was a joke.

“What are you? Are you a winning football club, a club in the ascendency? You’ve got a group of fans that run a TV station just to vilify their own club.

“I’m sorry – I think they’re a bit of a joke at the moment.”
