While most Arsenal fans, if not all of us, have been enjoying the trials and tribulations of our old Premier League rivals Manchester United ever since the red nosed devil Sir Alex Ferguson stepped aside as their manager, a lot of us are still surprised that they still have not managed to get it together under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and now Jose Mourinho.
However much I dislike the former Chelsea boss, and it is quite a bit, I accept that he does tend to get results and with all the money that United have been spending I expected a lot more from them. Unless the club does a Chelsea and gets rid of him quick, though, I reckon Mourinho will be spending a lot more money in January and according to media reports he could be set to offload some of the current squad, including big names like the club captain Wayne Rooney.
A report in The Mirror that asked one blog writer from all 20 EPL clubs showed that most still would, despite his current dip in form, although seven said no. The Gooner was not one of them, however, and we have been linked with him before, so would you still want him?
I am not so sure, although he might be a good back-up for Ozil in the num,ber 10 role, which is one where we do not have much cover, as well as being another decent striking option. Definitely not in the midfield role he has often played in recent years though as we have plenty of talent there.
There are other players who seem to be out of favour with the miserable one though, such as Luke Shaw and Mkhitaryan, so if not Rooney, which of the current United squad, assuming they are available, would you like to see come to Arsenal in January?
