BARCELONA WATCH MARTIAL


Anthony Martial Manchester United

OZIL TELLS TEAM-MATES HE'S MAN UTD BOUND


Mesut Ozil Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is so confident he'll be transferring to Manchester United, he's already begun telling his Gunners team-mates, according to The Mirror. 

After Arsene Wenger admitted last week that the Gunners could end up selling Ozil in January, the 29-year-old feels he is set to join Jose Mourinho, his former manager at Real Madrid, at Old Trafford in 2018.

Ozil's contract is set to expire at the end of the current season, so Arsenal could attempt to sell him in January to avoid losing him on a free. 


ARSENAL AND MAN UTD MONITORING REUS


Marco Reus Borussia Dortmund

Though he's yet to play this season due to injury, Arsenal and Manchester United have still been monitoring Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus, according to The Sun .

The 28-year-old Germany international is currently rehabbing from a cruciate ligament injury, and is expected to return early in 2018.

PSG, though, are expected to let current coach Unai Emery go if he fails to win the Champions League this season and will turn to Mourinho as their top target.


LEEDS CHASE MAN UTD STRIKER


James Wilson Man Utd

Juan Mata Manchester United

Juan Mata has rejected an offer from the Chinese Super League that would have seen him make £375,000 per week after tax, The Sun  reports.

Aaron Martin, Espanyol, 2017/18
