The transfer of one of Arsene Wenger’s most rumoured target has been announced today.
Morgan Schneiderlin’s move away from the St Mary’s Stadium was announced officially today.
It was earlier reported that Morgan Schneiderlin was close to signing for Arsenal, but that seems unlikely now as Manchester United have officially announced Schneiderlin’s deal as being done.
The 25-year-old midfielder has signed a 4-year deal for United with an extra year extension option.
Arsenal and Tottenham were the favourites to do business, but United have finalised a £24million fee to bring him to Old Trafford.
This report will come as bad news to Arsenal fans who had actually thought the midfielder was close to a move to Arsenal, after earlier reports claimed the player had agreed terms to move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
