Man Utd boss Ferguson determined to land £10M Oxlade-Chamberlain

Manchester United are set to land Southampton winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Mirror says United are ready to sign Southampton starlet Oxlade-Chamberlain in a £10million deal.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has outsmarted his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger in the race for the 17-year-old, who is seen as a future Old Trafford hero.

Fergie has money to spend on several players this summer and wants to be sure that Oxlade-Chamberlain – son of former England winger Mark Chamberlain – is one of them.

United will offer Saints £5m up front and double that money on appearances, with the bonuses paid in reasonable time. The whole package will be the biggest paid for a teenager.
