Mourinho Plots Surprising Mega Bid For Arsenal’s Top Midfield Star

Latest transfer reports in the UK say that Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho will make a surprise bid for  Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey — if he fails to lure Borussia Dortmund star  Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Old Trafford.

It is believed that The Special One is ready to wind up bitter rival Arsene Wenger by targeting the £50million-rated Gunners star.

Although Mkhitaryan remains Mourinho’s top summer target, Dortmund are playing hardball over a fee for the attacker. Already United has tabled an improved bid of £28m for the Armenia captain, after an initial offer of £19.3m was rejected.

But boss Mourinho fears Dortmund could refuse over a player who last season bagged 19 goals and  provided 24 assists after the German giant has already lost Ilkay Gundogan to  Manchester City and Mats Hummels to rivals Bayern Munich.

Mkhitaryan only has a year left on his current deal, but could be forced to see out his contract and leave on a free next summer. So Mourinho  is ready to turn his attention to the in-form Ramsey.

With Wenger just spending £30million on Borussia Moenchengladbach playmaker, Granit Xhaka, which leaves  him with plenty midfield options like Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin and  Mohamed Elneny, who are all vying with Ramsey for a midfield role.
