Man United ‘considering’ fresh summer swoop for 2019 target amid ‘£58m’ midfielder claims

Man United are already being touted for a busy summer of transfer activity.

Over the course of the remainder of the campaign, Manchester United’s priority will continue to be Champions League qualification.

Even if Ralf Rangnick can guide the Reds to a top four finish, however, the manner in which they stumbled through several underwhelming spells of form in recent months will no doubt lead to a fair amount of soul-searching at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

With that in mind, it’s understandable that United are already being linked with a whole host of potential summer deals, and we’ve rounded up a few of the latest transfer rumours involving the Reds below...

United weigh up Dybala swoop

Man United are reportedly considering making a fresh move for Juventus star Paulo Dybala this summer.

According to an update from Corriere dello Sport, the Reds are keeping tabs on the Argentine international, amid ongoing uncertainty over his contract situation in Turin.

Dybala is out of contract at the end of the season, and as yet, there are no concrete indications that he is anywhere near signing an extension.

The 28-year-old’s limbo has seemingly alerted United, who are now said to be exploring the possibility of a free transfer in the summer as they look to bolster an attacking unit that has failed to deliver at times this season.

The Reds have been linked with a move for Dybala before, with a deal that would have taken the forward to Old Trafford falling through in the late stages of the 2019 summer window.

Rashford attracting La Liga attention

Marcus Rashford is said to be garnering attention from Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Claims in recent days have suggested that the England international is considering his future at Old Trafford after struggling for a starting role in recent times.

And while the likes of Arsenal and Newcastle United have already been linked with a potential summer move for the forward, Fichajes report that both Real and Barca are keen too.

The two La Liga superpowers are understood to be eyeing that 24-year-old as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard and Memphis Depay, respectively.

United identify Pogba replacement

United have reportedly identified their preferred option to replace Paul Pogba at Old Trafford, should the Frenchman leave the club this summer.

Pogba’s current contract expires at the end of the season, with no apparent progress made in talks over a potential extension.

With that in mind, the Reds are understood to have earmarked Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as the man to succeed the World Cup winner in Manchester.

According to CalcioMercato, United could even land the Serbian for a cut-price fee, with his Italian employers slashing their valuation of the player from £85 million to around £58 million in recent months.

Ralf Rangnick’s men aren’t the only side being linked with the 27-year-old, however, with PSG also said to be pushing for a deal.
