Man United are set to rival Arsenal to sign Loic Remy in the summer with Robin van Persie edging closer to the exit door. Remy has been in brilliant form scoring 13 goals this season and setting up two, prompting jealous glances from a flurry of Premier League clubs. And with Remy’s buy out clause only being a relatively meagre 8m he represents a cheap option that will guarantee goals, who is likely to only get better after experiencing a full season in the Premier League. Remy, on loan at Newcastle from parent club QPR, is keen to play in the Champions League and will decide his future in the summer. United boss David Moyes is keen to bring in another proven goalscorer as part of his summer spending spree, understands, with Van Persie looking an increasingly isolated and out of sorts figure at the club since criticising the team’s tactics.  The Gunners are in the market for a striker to provide cover for Olivier Giroud, with Yaya Sanogo still very raw.  Nicklas Bendtner, who is in his last year of contract, is also set to leave leaving Arsenal with a major void in that department.
The north London club had tried to sign Luis Suarez last summer, but were denied by Liverpool.
