Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, a major summer transfer target for Arsenal and Chelsea, has offered a hint where he’ll be playing his football next season.
Arsenal have supposedly opened talks with Saints over the Frenchman, according to a report by ESPN earlier this month, whilst the Metro claimed in April that Jose Mourinho would try and tempt Ronald Koeman with a swap deal for the 25-year-old.
And it is widely believed Schneiderlin will be on the move this summer, given his comments in the past over wanting to play in the Champions League whilst he failed in his attempts to force a switch last summer when there was a mass exodus at St. Mary’s.
But in an interview with French radio station RMC, quoted by Goal, Schneiderlin has given his biggest indication yet he will be on the move but admitted that talks ongoing with clubs and ‘nothing is done’ yet.
However, he did offer some suggestion over which prospective clubs are interested saying he will only leave the south coast for a club in the Champions League, and, perhaps the biggest bombshell, that this specific club would have to be in England.
That only leaves four potentially interested parties in Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United – who aren’t technically even in the competition yet having still to play a qualifying round.
With past interested taken into account, we have a sneaking suspicion Schneiderlin might end up in the capital in the coming months if a deal goes through.
