Manchester United ready to break transfer record to sign star winger

Thomas Lemar

According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Manchester United are ready to splash the cash in order to acquire the services of Arsenal target Thomas Lemar in January.

Lemar was strongly linked with a move to England throughout the summer transfer window and Arsenal seemed to be the most likely destination for the French international after the Gunners placed a whopping £92million bid for him.

However, Lemar surprisingly went on to reject the move to Arsenal citing that he did not have enough time to contemplate the transfer and as a result, the 21-year-old has ended up staying put at Monaco for the time being.

It is believed that Arsenal will look to revive their pursuit of Lemar during the January transfer window as Alexis Sanchez has not yet signed a new contract but the Daily Mirror reports that the Gunners will face competition from Manchester United in the race to sign the French wonderkid.

United boss Jose Mourinho is in the market to sign a winger after missing out on Ivan Perisic over the summer and claims are being made that the Red Devils’ manager will now go all out to sign an alternative in Lemar by placing a club record £92million bid on the table in January.
