Man Utd to pursue Arsenal and Spurs target Schneiderlin

Manchester United are said to be readying a £25m bid for Arsenal and Tottenham target Morgan Schneiderlin, despite Southampton insisting he will not leave the club, the Daily Express is reporting.

The French ace was one of very few stars allowed to leave St Mary’s last summer but despite unrest from his camp has still performed very well so far this season.

Arsenal and Tottenham have been tracking the holding midfielder for some time – with Pochettino keen to link up with his former charge once again while Arsene Wenger is desperate for a classy holding midfielder.

And despite Southampton once again reiterating their stance that Schneiderlin will not be sold United are readying a whopping £25m bid to outdo their rivals.

Louis van Gaal’s number one target Kevin Strootman is looking increasingly unlikely to arrive following the strong stance of Roma that will not leave for anything less than an astronomical fee.

The Dutchman wants to add to his already star studded squad as he looks to land United back in the Champions League following last season’s failure to qualify – but their hopes were dented on Sunday by Schneiderlin and his current club – who are performing well above anyone’s expectations to sit in third place.
