Manchester United are interested in making an incredible last minute loan swoop for Arsenal’s Mathieu Debuchy, according to the Daily Mail.
The right-back has been linked with loan moves to Sunderland and Aston Villa in previous days but it’s believed that Louis van Gaal is keen to bring the Frenchman to Old Trafford.
On Monday morning, Wenger was asked about Debuchy’s future and he replied: “At the moment it doesn’t look like (he will move), but it’s a possibility. It’s impossible to do a permanent deal now.”

But a loan move to United could be on the cards for Debuchy as he seeks more first-team opportunities,
The Red Devils currently have Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young all injured, meaning the Dutch manager is desperate for some defensive cover.
Villa appeared to be the favourites to sign the full-back but an agreement on the terms of his loan couldn’t be reached. It’s reported that Arsenal want a £1 million loan fee with any club having to pay his £60,000-per-week wages.
Debuchy joined the Gunners from Newcastle in 2014 for a reported £12 million but only made 15 appearances in all competitions as injuries allowed Hector Bellerin to earn a starting place ahead of him.
This season, the 30-year-old has had to make do with being on the bench for the majority of the campaign with the excellent performances of Bellerin meaning that he has only made two Premier League appearances.
