Virtually every Arsenal fans hate Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese is in fact hated by most football fans but Arsenal fans in particular. Unfortunately it seems Mourinho is at it again. The Portuguese only yesterday officially got announced as Manchester United manager taking over from Louis Van Gaal. Just less than 24 hours into his job, Mourinho is already working to annoy Arsenal fans.
Reports in both the Italian and the British press today claim Mourinho is set to beat Arsenal to the signing of Kostas Manolas of AS Roma. Last week news emerged that Manolas is a key Arsenal target this summer. The reports went as far as claiming Arsenal are working to sign the Greece international taking advantage of the Italian clubside’s financial troubles to sign the former Olympiakos defender. While some other reports claim Arsenal are trying to use Szszesny as a bait to sign the powerful centre back.
Manchester United are in need of another centre back and so does Arsenal and with Mourinho said to be ready to pay as much as £30 million to Roma to get the player Arsenal look like they will be losing out on one of the main target to Mourinho. This is unless of course if Wenger decides to engage the former Chelsea manager in a bidding war.
