Man United could capitalise on talented Arsenal youngster’s contract uncertainty

Manchester United are said to be one of a number of clubs monitoring Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka.

The 18-year-old’s current deal in North London runs out in the summer of 2021, with Arsenal desperate to tie him down to a long-term contract.

Saka has been one of the most impressive performers for the Gunners this season, making 30 first-team appearances.

Despite naturally being a left-winger, Saka has played mostly in the unfamiliar left back position ahead of the injured Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney.

According to the Daily Express, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keeping a close eye on the talented Englishman, who has shown maturity beyond his years this season.

But if United were to go in for Saka, they would face serious competition from the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, and Liverpool.

Saka currently earns £7,000-per-week at the North London club, a figure which will rise significantly wherever he signs his new contract.

Despite United having the chance to capitalise on Arsenal again letting one of their player’s contract running into the final year, we would be surprised if the Reds pulled off the deal.

While Saka is an exciting versatile player, Solskjaer has enough left-sided options and needs to focus on signing a right-winger and centre forward this summer.
