Thomas Lemar has reportedly chosen Manchester United as his favoured destination should he leave Monaco.

The winger has been a top target for Arsenal this summer, but with under a week to go before the transfer window closes, a deal is yet to materialise.

However, Duncan Castles reports that the Gunners might have a hard time convincing the France international to make the move to the Emirates, because he would prefer to play for United and follow the path trodden by compatriot Anthony Martial.

Duncan Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast: “I had a chat with a Monaco contact last night and asked him where things stood.

“He said that the Lemar deal was very much on the table as far as they’re concerned.

“It is a possibility he leaves if the transfer fee they’re looking for of 60m is met.

“The additional bit of information which was interesting was, I asked where he thought Lemar would prefer to go, Arsenal or Manchester United, and he was very clear.

“He said, ‘He wants to go to Manchester United’.

“So that might not be unconnected with Wenger’s statement this morning in that essentially once Manchester United come in head-to-head with Arsenal, the financial power is always going to be with the Old Trafford club

“And also, in the instance, the attraction of Champions League football at Manchester United is there.

“I’m not saying he’s going to end up at Manchester United but that is still a viable option if they can come to an agreement on a fee before the end of the transfer window.”
