Having enjoyed a breakout season at Arsenal, the Gunners should go all out to ensure that the talented midfielder commits his long-term future to the club.
The youngster’s performances have attracted the attention of some of Europe’s biggest names. Apart from United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich are also keen on the player.
Although the youngster prefers to play on the left-wing, he has proven to be an able backup at left-back. He has filled in for the injured Sead Kolasinic and Kieran Tierney when required.
Left-back has been a problematic position for United ever since Patrice Evra’s departure. Luke Shaw hasn’t lived up to expectations and Brandon Williams is promising but young.
Bringing in Saka will give Williams enough competition while also adding to a young pool of potentially world-class full-backs to choose from.
