Was Arteta a Man Utd Target?
by Ed Bottomley

There’s been a lot of speculation in the last few hours about the fact that young German star Mesut Ozil’s player profile turned up on Man Utd’s site, most people are saying that like obituaries, they do them for any player that might sign – but there were some other interesting players listed in the Man Utd squad – including Mikel Arteta!

Was Fergie having a sniff around Mikel Arteta?

The young German is listed as a Man Utd player on their website

The link to see these profiles –{FE60904B-C2A8-4E60-9B05-700DBBC29BBC}&section=playerProfile&teamid=&bioid=94383 – is interesting too. Changing the last two digits of the link from 71 upwards will reveal the “fantasy” players – but moving back down reveals normal Man Utd squad players. Did we just get a peek at The Lord of the Ferg’s potential summer shopping list?
