Wenger set for for Old Trafford farewell

Saturday, 28 Apr, 2018

Jose Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that David de Gea could leave Manchester United in the upcoming transfer window.

'How dare you stroll the streets of Manchester!' That was the cry of a United fan who noticed the Arsenal squad as we took a stroll across the metropolis one Wednesday in Might 2002 that will turn out to be my most satisfying journey to Previous Trafford. We all know how good he was, that's why he was chased by many teams.

"Last season we won the Europa League and if we played Europa League this year we'd win it too", he said. I hope so and feel so, but what I'm sure about is next season. "More points, more victories, more goals, less goals conceded, not consistently but many, many times better football, so I think there was a clear evolution in the team and hopefully next season we can do better".

A number of reports suggested that De Gea had even asked to leave United this summer, after the club's humiliation at home to Sevilla in the second leg of the Champions League last 16.

Manchester United will be hoping to tighten their grip on second place with a win when Arsenal arrive at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Wenger went on to win the Premier League twice more, memorably seeing his team navigate their way through the 2003/2004 league campaign without losing a single game.

But he has steadily improved and produced a particularly effective display against Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final, scoring the victor as United triumphed 2-1. I will say goodbye to Mourinho and to everybody'.

But in the end I respect him a lot, I try to show that in the past couple of years.

Wenger enjoyed an infamous rivalry with Sir Alex Ferguson during his time with Manchester United while the 66-year-old was in a frosting relationship with Mourinho when the Portuguese arrived at london rival Chelsea. "The little negative episodes, yes I do and maybe he does".

De Gea recently told the club's official website that he think he's having his best ever season at United.

"This year you put your hand up and say they (City) were brilliant".
