Transfer Balls: Manchester United and Arsenal in desperately slow race for Morgan Schneiderlin
Transfer Balls: having read reports that Morgan Schneiderlin has joined Manchester United – pipping Arsenal to his signature – all papers bring news that he hasn’t. Morgan Schneiderlin still plays for Southampton.
What say the papers today?
The Sun: “[Manchester United] are ready with a new bid for Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin. The club had one of £20m turned down and are ready to up it to £25m.”
But the Express sys United don’t want the Fernchman:
Manchester United could end Schneiderlin pursuit after agreeing Schweinsteiger deal
They could. And, then again, they could not. Maybe.
The Mirror confirms that there is no news:
Southampton have confirmed that Manchester United are yet to make another bid for midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.
Which just leaves the Daily Star to report:
Arsenal free to complete swoop for Man United target Morgan Schneiderlin
In other words, the Press have no idea.
Such are the facts.
