Jose Mourinho Makes A Shocking Bid For Arsenal’s Ramsey
JOSE MOURINHO will make a shock bid for Aaron Ramsey — if he fails to lure Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Special One is ready to wind up bitter rival Arsene Wenger by targeting the £50million-rated Arsenal star.
Welshman Ramsey, 25, is taking the Euros by storm and Mourinho wants him to be Manchester United’s answer to Frank Lampard.
Mkhitaryan, 27, remains his top summer target, but Dortmund are playing hardball over a fee for their attacker. United have tabled an improved bid of £28m for the Armenia captain, after an initial offer of £19.3m was rejected.
But boss Mourinho fears Dortmund will dig in over a player who last season bagged 19 goals and provided 24 assists.
The German giants have already lost Ilkay Gundogan to Manchester City and Mats Hummels to rivals Bayern Munich.
Now Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke fears losing Mkhitaryan would send out the wrong message to stars Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Mkhitaryan only has a year left on his current deal, but could be forced to see out his contract and leave on a free next summer.
So Mourinho is ready to turn his attention to the in-form Ramsey.
Raiding Prem rivals Arsenal for Rambo would be one of Mourinho’s boldest ever transfer moves.
He knows he would face fierce resistance from Gunners boss Wenger.
Yet he is ready to test the water with a £35m bid if Dortmund refuse to do business.
