Kerkez 'interest'

United are reportedly keen on a move for Bournemouth star Milos Kerkez ahead of this summer. That's according to transfer journalist Ben Jacobs, who told CaughtOffside: "Bournemouth’s Milos Kerkez is one name on Chelsea’s radar. There is nothing advanced yet, but Chelsea, along with Manchester United, have scouted the talented 20-year-old Hungarian. Kerkez has also been teasing Chelsea fans a little with his social media activity. Scouting doesn’t mean a great deal, and nothing of note is progressing yet, but Kerkez is one to watch in the coming windows.

“Chelsea have plenty of other options. One is Bayern’s Alphonso Davies, but the feeling is he’ll end up at Real Madrid if he leaves Bayern. Chelsea know this so it would be quite surprising if they prioritise Davies. It’s little more than admiration from afar at this point. Wolves’ Rayan Ait-Nouri is going to be in demand this summer, but it’s still too early to tell if Chelsea will move.”

David reports

Elsewhere, the Red Devils are said to be interested in Lille star Jonathan David. According to TEAMtalk, United are keen to beat the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham to the signing of the forward.

The forward has already scored 22 times this season, and he has been linked with a move to the Premier League in previous windows. David is still only 24 years of age, aligning him with United's new transfer policy of signing young.
