Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin wants to move to Manchester United this summer and will snub a move to Arsenal in favour of the Red Devils, according to Metro.

A number of Premier League sides have been labelled with interest in Southampton’s impressive French midfielder this season, with Arsenal and Man United at the forefront of interested clubs.

Saints boss Ronald Koeman is somewhat resigned to losing his defensive midfielder, despite offering him a new deal in recent months.

His sale is firmly expected with Koeman keen to look for a suitable replacement in the coming weeks.

However, the French international will not leave if interested clubs do not pay his £24m asking price.

The St. Mary’s club remain adamant that the 25-year-old is worth that amount and will not accept anything less.

It is understood that the Arsenal are willing to spend up to £20m, but the French midfielder is keen on a move to Man United, who are thus far unwilling to pay the said asking price.
