Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has long been linked with a move to Arsenal. But according to reports in France, another suitor has swooped in and moved ahead of the London club in the queue.

Canal + say that Manchester United are now favourites to sign the French international.

Schneiderlin told a French radio station last week that a move away from Southampton was likely, but only to a Champions League club.


Yes, I think my decision is made.

I learned a lot last season. The goal is to stay in England. It is a championship that I like and where I have a lot of fun. If I leave Southampton, it is for a club that plays better than the Europa League.

There are ongoing discussions but nothing is done. But of course the Champions League is my goal. If I leave Southampton it will be for a club in the Champions League.

I have a two-year contract. If a club pays the right amount for me, it will be time to leave.

The amount? I have no idea but I will not leave for a small price. Southampton is known to be a good seller club, the price should be high enough.

Recent reports suggested that Southampton would be asking around £25 million for the player who joined from Strasbourg in the summer of 2008.
