Deal Done + Picture – Arsenal Beat Manchester United To Sign Centre-Back

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling will be having talks with Jose Mourinho over the his future at the club.

Smalling’s future at United looks shaky after the signing of Swedish centr-back Victor Lindelof. With no prospect of first-team play next season, Smalling will commence negotiation with Jose Mourinho to bring clarification to his position at the club, according to Daily Mail.

It’s understood he wants to remain at Old Trafford. If he should leave, he would want to move to a club that will be playing Champions league. That could not sit well with Arsenal, who would have been linked with Smalling on several occasions.

Arsenal will, of course, not be in the Champions League next season, so they may not even be an option for Smalling. Just imagine being rejected by Chris Smalling, of all players.
