Manchester United & Arsenal target drops transfer hint

Manchester United and Arsenal have been given a boost in their pursuit of France international Adil Rami after he hinted at a move in the summer.

A report in talkSPORT is running with quotes from French newspaper Le Parisien where the 27-year-old said: "I need to play for a big European club".

The report also claims Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been eyeing the Valencia stopper as a possible option to bring in this summer.

However, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has also been credited with an interest in Rami and was linked with making a summer move.

Manchester United’s reported interest could be Ferguson planning for life after Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, with both having various fitness issues and a lack of experience behind them.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will lose Sebastien Squillaci at the end of the season and Johan Djourou has expressed a desire to make permanent his loan spell at Hannover 96.

This will leave the Gunners with just three senior centre-backs in Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen.

There has also been speculation surrounding the Arsenal captain’s future since he was dropped from the first team a couple of weeks previously.

Rami is currently in the midst of a Champions League qualification fight with Valencia in La Liga – similar to that of Arsenal’s in the Premier League – and a failure on their part to finish in the top four could pave the way for a transfer.
