Manchester United and Liverpool have been disappointed in their chase for Morgan Schneiderlin as he has snubbed both teams to opt for a move to Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer.

According to the Daily Star, press in France are reporting that the Southampton star has come to an agreement with the Gunners after being given permission to leave by the Saints at the end of the season.

The report claims that Manchester United and Liverpool were also keeping an interest in the discussions over his future on the South Coast, with Louis van Gaal and Brendan Rodgers keen on signing one of the Premier League’s most consistent performers.

However, it would seem that Arsene Wenger has prevailed over his rivals at Old Trafford and Anfield, not to mention White Hart Lane. The report also claims that Tottenham Hotspur have an interest in Schneiderlin after missing our in signing him last summer.

The 25-year-old looked certain to be joining the exodus of stars from Southampton last summer, but the move was blocked by new manager Ronald Koeman. This prompted an angry outburst from Schneiderlin on Twitter, but the decision to remain has been vindicated.

Arsenal’s need for a dominant defensive midfielder is clear for all to see and the France international has been a key part in a, so far, brilliant season for the Saints. The report claims that he is rated at around £15million, a sum well in the Gunners’ price range.
