He’s been a subject of interest from Jose Mourinho in recent weeks as the Portugese tactician was spotted scouting him on international duty recently as Arnautovic set up the only goal of the game against Russia ahead of the World Cup. The 6 foot 3 inch Austrian generally plays on the left wing but is equally comfortable playing on the right or through the middle. He is a player that has promised so much but has been dogged by indiscipline and inconsistent play though his first season with West Ham saw some exciting displays of his quality and could be a sign of things to come in the future. he was quoted as saying :
Just to reiterate on Arnautovic, West Ham have emphatically said he won’t be sold to Manchester United this summer. Obviously it’s football and things can change but view is he’s far too important to let go #whufc #mufc— Jacob Steinberg (@JacobSteinberg) May 31, 2018
“It is a great honor for our entire team that a coach like Mourinho is watching us”,which was not exactly dismissive of the rumors. And more over adding further fuel to the fire, Marko Arnautovic was quoted recently refusing to rule out a move away from the hammers by saying :
Mourinho is looking to add another dimension to United’s attack which lacked direct play and often looked one dimensional last season. A 60 million price tag is maybe a little too much for a player like Arnautovic who is 29 years old and has not been consistent and has a problem of indiscipline.
‘I am happy with my job. Whatever happens will happen. I’ve never heard anything,’
-Arnautovic told Sky Austria.
‘Even three weeks ago I haven’t heard anything. That’s why I cannot say anything about it.
‘The only thing that bothers me is that I am in good health and that I am able to play football.
United Offered the Chance to Sign Polish Hitman Lewandowski : Should Jose go for it despite having LukakuWith players like Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in the squad he is probably not going to get much game time. Though if he does end up signing for the Red Devils it could help Arnautovic by providing him with Champions League football as well as United providing them with a plethora of options going forward and at last a proper back up for the lone striker Romelu Lukaku.
