Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing Aaron Ramsey to Old Trafford next summer. The Arsenal midfielder is currently serving a spell on the sidelines with an injury with his contract set to run for another season beyond the current one.
The bosses at Emirates have learned from the drawn-out messy battle the club had to endure with Alexis Sanchez and are preparing an extension for Ramsey. However, talks of a confirmation have not come out of the club ranks and the Welshman’s future continues to be speculated upon.
Ramsey’s has over 100 goals and assists for his country and is one of the driving factors in Arsenal’s offense. His shiftiness in and around the penalty box brings a completely different dynamic to Wenger’s squad and has earned him high praise from fans and critics alike. To some, he might not be as illustrious as his teammate and former Real Madrid player, Mesut Ozil but it would be foolish to discount Ramsey’s talents when talking about the former.
Ramsey scored his first club hattrick against Everton earlier in the season and showcased his skills on his return from injury.
He and Jack Wilshere are the competing duo for a place in the starting lineup. Ramsey has struggled to maintain his fitness in recent times and that has favoured Wilshere’s selection in major games.
However, Wilshere’s contract is set to run out in the summer and even he is due for an extension. With both their careers in an Arsenal jersey hanging in the balance, Mourinho is looking to benefit from the situation.
The Red Devils are witnessing the inconsistencies of Paul Pogba in the midfield with both Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini struggling with game time. It has been surprising to see a young Scott McTominay get the nod ahead of the £89m Frenchman.
The midfield lacks a creative punch when both Pogba and Juan Mata is off the pitch and Ramsey can be the man to answer their problems. The Welshman is a brilliant professional in terms of his off-the-ball movements and playmaking quality.
He is quite clever with the quick tricks and flips in tight spaces and is an adept finisher from inside the box. It would be a huge loss for Wenger but a shrewd acquisition for the Manchester side.
It waits to be seen if Arsenal will agree to the move next summer following a disagreement on contract terms.
