Robert Pires Backs Arsenal To Sign This Premier League Midfielder

Sandro remains their priority target but at the moment Manchester United have not made a concrete move to take the full-back to Old Trafford this summer.

When asked on Sky Sports (via Metro) whether the midfielder would be a good signing for the Gunners, Pires said: "Yeah, why not?"

Of course last season it was very, very hard, the relation with Jose Mourinho.

You would think that Old Trafford and Premier League football would be his first choice destination however the unnamed Chinese clubs have nearly certainly offered him higher wages which could swing the deal in their favour. "I don't know what's happening but if he joined Arsenal, I think he would be a good player for the new squad". However, the Daily Telegraph quotes he is still negotiating terms with Manchester United, although nothing noteworthy has happened up until now. It means the Brazilian forward, who had been on loan at Besiktas, has moved clubs again, despite ongoing rumours linking him with Manchester United.

After the arrival of Unai Emery, reports surfaced that the London side would be interested in bringing Fellaini in, news that didn't exactly delight Arsenal fans.

With the spine well established now at United, composed of players signed by the current boss, this window is all about supplementing them with players who could now propel them to greater heights.

The 30-year-old joined United from Everton in 2013 and has since scored 20 goals for the club in 155 appearances.
