Man Utd have missed out on signing four Arsenal players after Gabriel Magalhaes transfer


Nicolas Pepe

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted to sign Jadon Sancho 12 months ago, only for his side’s failure to secure Champions League qualification to count against them.

As a result, the United boss mulled over signing Nicolas Pepe from Lille.

The Ivory Coast international had flourished in Ligue 1 and, with United wanting a right winger, thought about signing him.

But, with Lille demanding £72m, the Red Devils chose to walk away from a deal.

That left Arsenal with a free path to Pepe but, though he’s had some good moments for the Gunners, his signing hasn’t worked out so far.
