There has been much talk regarding a Manchester United takeover heading into the summer.
And whoever comes in will have plenty to do on and off the pitch.
Manchester United have improved under Erik ten Hag and won their first trophy since 2017 in February.
But it is clear that United are still currently not at the level required to compete with Arsenal and Manchester City.
One solution to this, which Arsenal did a good job at over the summer, is to sign some of your title rivals players.
The Gunners nabbed Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus from City and now look set to lift the title come May.
And now ,when reacting to recent comments from United target Frenkie de Jong, former Aston Villa and Liverpool attacker Stan Collymore believes it is time Man United give up on trying to sign the 25-year-old and he then suggested signing two Arsenal players:
“They shouldn’t pursue players that clearly don’t want to move to their club,” Collymore said.
“De Jong, every time he’s been asked about moving to Manchester United has pretty much said ‘no thanks’ – so just leave him alone and move on to alternative targets.
“He’s a great player, don’t get me wrong, but this is Manchester United we’re talking about. They can blow most teams out of the water now, let alone under potential Qatari ownership.
“If they get taken over, what’s stopping them from going in for Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard or Bukayo Saka in the summer?”
“You’re not telling me Manchester United’s financial power wouldn’t at least make the Gunners, as well as the players themselves, stop and think.”
