Man Utd open talks with Arsenal over shock transfer as Ed Woodward looks to strike deal

Manchester United could make a shock raid for Arsenal star Matteo Guendouzi, according to reports in France. The Red Devils are said to have registered their interest with the Gunners with Mikel Arteta set to make a decision on the future of the 21-year-old.

The midfielder could be on his way out of the Emirates after he was left out of the squad to face Southampton in the Premier League earlier this week.

Guendouzi is now ready to leave the club with United, Barcelona, PSG, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid all interested, according to L’Equipe.

Arteta is said to be willing to sell the midfielder with question marks over his attitude at Arsenal.

The 21-year-old is also reportedly ready to quit the club as he sees the Gunners as a team going backward and wants to push for a place in the France squad for Euro 2020.

The Frenchman has two years left on his contract at the Emirates.

Meanwhile, Arteta has spoken on the future of players at the club and has sent a clear warning to his entire squad that they won’t be kept if they are not fully invested in his plans.
