Whelan said that the midfielder would give the Red Devils some "backbone".
“It would be a very smart move for very smart money," he told Football Insider.
“If that is what you are going to be paying out for a player of his quality it’s nothing, let’s be honest. I go back to the relationship that he has with (Jurgen) Klopp.
“When you look at it, Manchester United have been lacking a player of that quality and character in the middle of the park. He would bring personality and backbone to the side.
"We haven’t seen much backbone from Manchester United players and that is something they need more of. Oxlade-Chamberlain leaves everything out there in the 90 minutes. For £10million it is a bargain.”
🚨 NEW: Liverpool will listen to offers of around £10m for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, another out of contract next summer. West Ham United have lodged interest but may first have to raise funds through player sales. #awlive [liverpool echo] pic.twitter.com/7V7jOIomGA
Anfield Watch Verdict
This has all come from Alex Crook claiming that Manchester United are 'contemplating' signing Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer.
The outrage from both sets of fans if the teams discussed a transfer would be unbelievable. No matter how good or bad the player is, the fans just wouldn't accept it.
That's why, in my opinion, this transfer definitely won't happen.
