It has been revealed that Manchester United have entered the race to sign unsettled Arsenal star Theo Walcott either in January or the summer, as they look to replace the departing Nani in the near future.

Walcott is declining to sign a five-year deal worth £75,000 a week, while formal talks over fresh terms have not taken place since August 28.

He is said to be keen to stay but wants a deal closer to £100,000 a week.

Gunner’s fans already despise United for stealing Robin Van Persie off them in the summer and if Walcott decides to join them too, it will not please the Arsenal faithful one bit.

However, with the Englishman being a free agent in the summer he can start to think about his future at the Emirates and could see this as a perfect opportunity to jump ship and actually win something in his career.
