Manchester United plotting ambitious attempt to bring Arsenal talent to Old Trafford

Manchester United are reportedly keen to exploit Bukayo Saka’s precarious contract situation at Arsenal.

Saka has emerged as one of the leading talents in the Premier League. He looks set to be a future star of the England National Team, having already made an impact at Euro 2020.

Arsenal will undoubtedly be desperate to keep hold of him as Mikel Arteta looks to build a side capable of penetrating the top four – but convincing him to stick around may not be straightforward.

As is reported by The Sun, Saka has just two years remaining on his current contract, which is understood to be worth ‘just’ £35k-a-week. It’s safe to assume he will be wanting a considerable increase on that figure.

The Red Devils are believed to be keen to exploit the uncertainty surrounding Saka’s future and bring him to Old Trafford.

It’s unclear whether Saka would entertain interest from the Manchester club, but it may well just be enough to convince Arsenal to get their backsides into gear and stump up the cash…
