It’s no longer news that Mourinho is keenly following Ramsey’s contract saga at the Emirates Stadium as he hopes to lure the Welshman to Old Trafford in the next transfer market.

The Portuguese manager is a big fan of the player and he can’t wait to work with him in the second half of the ongoing season.

Despite his fallout with Woodward, Mourinho has finally received the backing of his employers in his race to capture the £110k-a-week midfielder.

According to the Sun during the summer window, United made an official approach towards snatching the player from Emery’s watch, however, they couldn’t reach an agreement with the North Londoners before the end of the transaction period.

The Mirror are now claiming that Mourinho is set to convince the 27-year-old to join him at Old Trafford in January as he now has the backing of the Red Devils board members.

Ramsey was directly involved in 23 goals throughout last season as he helped the Gunners to a semi-final finish in last season’s Europa League.

The player hasn’t shown his class so far this season despite featuring in all the matches played by Unai Emery’s side so far.

It remains unknown if he would be given the opportunity to start against Newcastle later today.

He is far from impressive and he needs to get his mojo back as soon as possible if he must command huge price tag in January.
