Incoming Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is looking to anger Arsene Wenger this summer by moving for one of the Gunner’s best players.
Reports circulating this morning is that Mourinho is seriously interested in signing Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny.
The Portuguese is in talks with Manchester United executives over a potential move to Old Trafford which would be completed in the coming days. And according to French publication Le Ten Sport via the Daily Star, the Portuguese is set to clash with Wenger again after previous heated clashes between the pair when Mourinho was at Chelsea.
The report claims Mourinho is looking to beat Wenger to the signing N’Golo Kante who appears to be one of the French man’s priority target. It also added that Mourinho would look to lure Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny to Old Trafford, a move which Wenger would definitely not be happy with.
Wenger no longer entertains the idea of selling his players to League rivals as he appeared to block a loan move to Man Utd for Mathieu Debuchy in January. Mourinho’s poor relationship with Wenger coupled with both club’s intense rivalry will definitely make a move for Koscielny almost impossible.
Although there is little cause to worry as Koscielny still has three years left in his contract and is being tipped to be the club’s next captain.
