On the Youtube channel 'FIVE', Rio Ferdinand, a regular pundit on British television and former Premier League player, said that Mikel Arteta would leave Arsenal for Manchester United 100% if given the chance. The Spanish manager has a contract until 2025 at the Emirates Stadium and has already publicly dismissed recent press links to a move away from the Gunners to Barcelona.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand said Mikel Arteta would swap Arsenal for United "100 per cent". Arteta is under contract at Arsenal until 2025 and there is nothing to suggest he will be leaving any time soon.
The Spaniard joined the Gunners in 2019 and has led them to an FA Cup title and a return to the Champions League five years later, as well as fighting for the Premier League title against Manchester City last season and being among the favourites again this year.
"Arteta would leave Arsenal for Manchester United 100 per cent, Ferdinand told YouTube channel 'FIVE'. "There's nothing to suggest it's going to happen but, if United have a crazy dream where they sack Erik Ten Hag or Ten Hag goes to Bayern Munich and Arteta was top of the list, Arteta will go to the club and say 'look, it's been really nice, but I've got to go'," the former Red Devils and England player added.
Arteta was linked with a move to Barcelona earlier this year, coinciding with Xavi Hernandez's announcement that he will leave at the end of the season, but the Spanish coach dismissed them as "fake news".
