Manchester United have registered their interest in Matteo Guendouzi as the midfielder has told Arsenal he would be open to leaving this summer, according to reports in France.
Guendouzi was dropped by Mikel Arteta for Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Southampton on Thursday evening following an internal disciplinary meeting earlier this week.
The 21-year-old met with Arsenal’s hierarchy to discuss his clash with Neal Maupay during the Gunners’ defeat to Brighton last Saturday.
Guendouzi reportedly called Brighton’s players ‘s***’ during the game, while the midfielder is also said to have told his opponents that he earns ‘more than they ever will’.
Guendouzi, who also grabbed Maupay by the throat at the full-time whistle, was told by the Brighton striker that he ‘needs to learn what humility is’.
According to L’Equipe, Guendouzi told Arsenal’s hierarchy in their meeting that he would be open to leaving the club at the end of the season.
Arsenal are also open to selling the French midfielder but will demand at least €40 million (£36m).
The report claims that Manchester United have expressed their interest, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face competition from Juventus and Inter, as Antonio Conte a huge admirer of Guendouzi.
United are reportedly looking to strengthen in central midfield in the upcoming transfer window and have already been linked with a move for Ajax’s Donny van de Beek.
Guendouzi, meanwhile, has decided to consider his future at Arsenal after being handed fewer opportunities by Arteta.
Since Arteta’s arrival in December, Guendouzi has started just four Premier League games, while under Unai Emery, the midfielder had started every league match before the Spaniard was sacked at the end of November.
When asked about the decision to drop Guendouzi from the squad after Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Southampton on Thursday evening, Arteta claimed that it should not be interpreted as a warning for the rest of the squad.
‘I don’t like to make any decisions to send messages,’ said Arteta.
‘The messages that I send to the team or individually are very open and I’m clear with how I feel. Winning is the most important thing and when you win, everything is fine.
‘It was squad management. Whatever issue we have internally, I will resolve it in a private way. I explained that I cannot explain and that’s it.’
