Manchester United battling Arsenal for £40m Premier League star

Manchester United are set to go head-to-head with Arsenal this summer.

Manchester United look set to be up against the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for the transfer of Fulham midfielder, Joao Palhinha.

According to the Sun, the Red Devils are among Palhinha’s main suitors, but Arsenal also look to be in the mix for the 27-year-old, who would likely cost more than £40m.

The Gunners recently signed Jorginho but will want more of a long-term addition to their squad in that department, where the likes of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka are also at the age where their peak years may be behind them.

If Fulham do end up selling Palhinha for over £40m, it will go down as smart business by the west London outfit, who signed the player for just £17m.

Manchester City were previously interested in the midfielder before his summer switch to Fulham, where he has gone on to be a crucial cog in Marco Silva’s side.

Palhinha has been suspended for Fulham’s last few games and his absence has been clear, especially on Sunday when Arsenal ran out 3-0 winners over the Cottagers.
