Ian Wright has warned Manchester United about the perils of signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal next summer.

The Gunners star has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs due to his contract situation at The Emirates.

Ramsey is set to become a free agent next summer unless Arsenal have a significant change of heart in the coming months.

The Gunners have retracted their contract offer following lengthy negotiations with the Wales international over the past few months.

The north London outfit could lose Ramsey for nothing next summer, which has unsurprisingly attracted interest from some top teams.

Indeed, a player of Ramsey’s undoubted quality would be a great addition for a top Premier League or Champions League team.

Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC have been regularly linked with a move to sign the former Cardiff City star over the past few weeks.

Manchester United have also been touted as potential candidates to swoop and sign Ramsey for nothing at the end of the season.

However, the Red Devils have already had one bad experience with an Arsenal star after Alexis Sanchez’s struggles at Old Trafford.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes if Sanchez is toiling at Manchester United than Ramsey could also find life as a Red Devil tough.

“They took Sanchez for nothing,” Wright told Sky Sports. “It is not working out.

“He has more ability than Ramsey. I can’t see Ramsey at Man United or Man City.”

Sanchez has failed to score in six games in all competitions in the current campaign to heap pressure on the Chile international.

The Chile forward moved to Manchester United from Arsenal in a swap deal in the January transfer window as Henrikh Mkhitaryan headed in the other direction.

The 29-year-old was left out of the Red Devils’ team for their 3-1 loss to West Ham United in the Premier League last weekend.

However, Sanchez was restored to the Manchester United team for the visit of La Liga side Valencia in the Champions League at Old Trafford.

The January signing lasted 69 minutes before he was substituted during their goalless draw with the Spanish outfit.

Indeed, Sanchez’s substitution was met with a chorus of jeers from Manchester United supporters at Old Trafford to underline his struggles.
