United are in the midst of another disappointing campaign and lost further ground to leaders Manchester City over the weekend.

Jose Mourinho’s side are lacking in a number of areas despite huge investment since the Portuguese replaced Louis van Gaal.

And reinforcing Manchester United’s midfield must be made a priority once a deal for the experienced centre-back Mourinho so desperately craves is done.

Snapping up Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld or Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar is likely to take a large chunk out of United’s mid-season transfer budget.

But they still have the opportunity to add a high-quality option to Mourinho’s squad in the form of Ramsey.

The Wales international is set to enter the final six months of his current contract in January and Arsenal are not offering an extension due to concerns over fitting his wage demands into their pay structure.

And while he is willing to stay at the Emirates, Gunners chiefs may have other ideas if the chance to cash in on a asset losing value by the day comes along.

United did the same in 2012 when Arsenal had failed to get Robin van Persie to put pen to paper on fresh terms.

And Van Persie rewarded the faith Sir Alex Ferguson put in him by firing United to the Premier League title in the Scotsman’s final year at Old Trafford.

Aaron Ramsey might not have the same decisive impact for United as Van Persie managed after hitting the ground running in Manchester.

However, he can follow in the footsteps of countryman Ryan Giggs by becoming a vital cog in the United starting XI.

Ramsey’s dynamism is a quality Paul Pogba shows too fleetingly, while his experience as he comes into his prime will be invaluable.

The opportunity to take a player off a rival will be one Mourinho relishes given his fondness for securing a psychological advantage.

And Arsenal could count the cost of letting another of their homegrown core depart, following the previous departures of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere.

Arsenal have previous for letting high-profile players run down their contracts, before and after Van Persie was allowed to do so.

And United benefitted from their failure to convince Alexis Sanchez to sign a new deal, even if the Chilean has only recently started to show glimpses of returning to top form.

At 27, Ramsey is the type of experienced operator Mourinho prefers working with.

And the opportunity to join a team with ambitions of winning more than just a few FA Cups should appeal to him at this stage of his career.

Ramsey is unlikely to be without offers when the transfer window is opened again in the new year.

Express Sport understand Bayern Munich are keen on luring the Cardiff academy graduate to the Allianz Arena.

While Juventus have told Ramsey he is an option if they cannot prise Adrien Rabiot away from Paris Saint-Germain.

United’s Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool have been touted as potential destinations as well.

So Ed Woodward and co. ought to act fast in order to strike an agreement for Ramsey.

And, in doing so, capitalise on Arsenal’s failure to reward one of their best players with a new contract.
