Manchester United to bid £92m for Arsenal target Thomas Lemar

The Gunners came close to landing the French winger with an incredible £92million bid on deadline day.

Moves for either Antoine Griezmann or Gareth Bale remain an option, but it is now claimed Lemar has shot to the top of Mourinho's wanted list.

Mourinho made three major signings this summer in Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic - but missed out on adding the wide player he craved to his attacking armoury, failing to get a deal for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic over the line.

And, according to the Mirror, the Portuguese chief has identified Lemar as the ideal player to fill the void.

Isaiah Thomas excited to play alongside LeBron James
This is going to be a great year to be a Cavs fan, a great year. "LeBron James! Dad - you get to play with LeBron James! ". For much of last season, Thomas was in the conversation as an MVP candidate.

Arsenal will allegedly return for Lemar next year having missed out last month, but the France worldwide may be spoilt for choice, as United allegedly prepare a move to land him as Mourinho's new winger. Many other European clubs have reaped the benefits of this system but it seems like the Ligue 1 side are more eager to hold onto some of their star players from now on.

Manchester United will start their Champions League campaign with a home clash against Basel at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Any move for the France global will likely top the £89m club-record fee shelled out for Paul Pogba past year. While Arsene Wenger is set on continuing his pursuit of Lemar in January as the replacement for Alexis Sanchez, Jose Mourinho has plans to intercept Lemar's signature.

The Chile worldwide is expected to complete a move to Manchester City in January for a knockdown price of £20m.
