Manchester United are keeping tabs on Arsenal’s star midfielder Aaron Ramsey, according to The Sun.
As per the report, new United boss Jose Mourinho would like to bring in Aaron Ramsey if he fails to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borrusia Dortmund.
Earlier this week, in an interview with Bild, Mkhitaryan’s agent Mino Raiola was heard claiming that the Armenian international is very interested in moving to the Theatre of Dreams – which the player considers his dream destination.
Raiola said: “We have both taken very different views and fight for them like lions. Watzke (CEO of Borussia Dortmund) walks 180 degrees into one direction and I 180 degrees into the other. But even though it does not look like it right now, I still hope for a sensible solution.

“Such an offer to join Manchester United might only come once in a lifetime for a player and nobody can guarantee us that the door will still be open for Micki next season. Manchester are Micki’s dream club; he wants to join them by any means.”
But despite Raiola’s attempts, Dortmund may not allow the 27-year-old to leave as they are adamant on retaining his services, at least for another year.
Dortmund’s stubbornness has led Manchester United to start considering other options, and Jose Mourinho has now set his sights on Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey.
This is not the first time the Wales international has been linked with a potential move to Manchester United – a club he has supported since childhood. In 2008, the midfielder was almost set to become a Red Devil, but then chose to join Arsene Wenger’s side instead.
The Gunners currently value their 25-year-old star at £50 million, but the Special One is willing to pay the price to secure his services, as he reportedly wants Ramsey to be “Manchester United’s answer to Frank Lampard”.
