While the United manager could also possibly endorse a move for Borussia Dortmund’s England midfielder Jude Bellingham, 19.
Meanwhile, The Telegraph reports Manchester City are interested in Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic. The 28-year-old has attracted the interest of City boss Pep Guardiola, with the midfielder facing a big decision over his Chelsea future.
And the Chronicle Live reports Kieran Tierney, 25, is open to a move to Newcastle this summer if Arsenal continue to keep him sidelined. The Gunners full-back has been restricted to starts in the FA Cup since the turn of the year and will not accept playing second best to Oleksandr Zinchenko for much longer.
