Manchester United: Move for Arsenal reject; Mourinho asks for time; fans sleep in Old Trafford

L’Equipe claim that Louis Van Gaal was ready to offer unwanted Arsenal full back Mathieu Debuchy a five year contract last January as they tried to persuade the Frenchman to move to Old Trafford, initially on loan. However, the 31-year-old instead opted for a loan to Bordeauz in Ligue 1.

Now back at the Emirates and seemingly third choice, the Frenchman has seen his career decline since the days when he was one of the Premier League’s most highly rated right backs, but United fans may be feeling lucky that he did not sign a five year deal in Manchester.

As results continue to fail to materialise for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, pressure is growing on the Portuguese manager, but sources close to Mourinho told the Daily Record:

“We need quality players, but you can not do it in one to two transfer windows. You cannot buy four or five players in one go of the level that we need.”

It’s believed that the former Real Madrid boss is asking for time from Ed Woodward and his bosses and hoping that they will support him by providing more substantial transfer budgets as they did this summer to continue to add to the squad with players like Paul Pogba.

Fears have also been sparked over security at Old Trafford after two fans hid in the toilets of the stadium overnight after breaking off from a tour group on Friday with the intention of emerging to watch the game against Arsenal on Saturday lunchtime, claim the BBC.

The pair were detected during security checks on Saturday morning and were handed over to police, who did not arrest either of the culprits, but it has raised questions over how it was able to happen.
