The truth about Matteo Guendouzi’s transfer rumour to Man United


Reports have flooded the media about Man United’s interest in Arsenal youngster, Matteo Guendouzi.

It is understood that the young central midfielder is having a difficult time at the Emirates Stadium and that has been fuelled by Mikel Arteta’s decision to leave him out of Thursday’s 2-1 defeat against Southampton.

The Arsenal boss cited reasons of squad management for leaving out the young lad, stressing that the issue will be resolved internally.

Guendouzi has not been a regular under Arteta, a development he is unhappy about and the situation seems to be getting worse after his outburst at Brighton with Neal Maupay in the 2-1 defeat last weekend.

It is now claimed that Guendouzi has told the club chiefs of his intention to leave this summer transfer window, sparking speculation of interest from a number of clubs.

However, the reports of Guendouzi being unhappy at Arsenal may not be completely true despite his lack of playing time.

It is also uncertain if the Gunners chief will sanction a move for him to the Old Trafford, knowing his quality and future in the game.

Having made a number of mistakes in previous transfer windows, it is unsure if Gunners chiefs will add this to their list of wrong decisions made.
