As per The Mail, Man United are leading the north London club to secure the signing of the La Albiceleste defender, who is willing to move to Old Trafford and the Emirates.
Thus far, Arsenal have offered around £40million (The Mirror), on the other hand, the Old Trafford outfit have submitted a bid of £35million (Hernan Sisto).
