Man Utd 'will do everything' to keep Russo | Arsenal's world-record offer revealed

Manchester United boss Marc Skinner says the club will do "everything in our power" to keep Alessia Russo at the club after turning down two world-record offers from Arsenal.

Russo - whose contract expires this summer - was the subject of two bids from the Gunners in January, with the first totalling just over £400,000.

Rushhoursport understands Arsenal offered various forwards and cash deals during negotiations with Manchester United for the 23-year-old.

One of the players Arsenal offered was Stina Blackstenius, who is the club's presumed starting striker for the rest of the season.

However, United later informed the north London club they had decided against selling Russo.

Speaking on Wednesday afternoon, Skinner said he had a meeting with the player and remained hopeful of agreeing a new contract to keep her at the club.
