Liverpool will sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Man United if the offer is right.

That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Liverpool man’s future.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is about to enter the final 12 months of his contract at Anfield.

According to talkSPORT‘s Alex Crook (10 June), Man United are plotting a surprise bid for the 28-year-old to bolster their midfield

The Reds are said to be willing to accept a knockdown fee of just £10million for the centre-midfielder.

Kenny claims the two rivals can come to an agreement over the player.

“He’s a player who hasn’t played much in the last couple of seasons,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“If Man United are the only club interested and that’s the only possible move for him then I don’t see why not.

“I think the Ox will want to get out there and play more regularly. Obviously, that isn’t going to happen at Liverpool.

“Man United would be a good move for him if they can get that one done.

“I will say it again, they are in the position where if any club with Champions League football comes in for him, he will join them instead.

“There is a rivalry between Liverpool and Man United but not in terms of challenging for the Premier League.”

As revealed by Football Insider (11 June), Aston Villa are also interested in signing Oxlade-Chamberlain as well.

He made 29 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool in the 2021-22 campaign, contributing three goals and three assists.
