Manchester United have made contact over a possible move for Manchester City target Christopher Nkunku.
The Lowdown: Nkunku profiled
Nkunku, a France international, is primarily an attacking midfielder, although he can also turn out as a second striker or as a left midfielder.
Manchester City have recently been linked with a summer swoop for Nkunku, but it looks as if the Red Devils are trying to get one up on their fierce rivals.
The Latest: United make contact
The report states that an offer in excess of €75m (£64.1m) could be enough, a figure that appears to be making PSG think twice.
How many signings do Man Utd need to make this summer?
The Verdict: Get it done
Nkunku has been one of the standout performers in Europe this season, so bringing him to Old Trafford would be an extremely exciting move under new boss Erik ten Hag.
Therefore, bringing in Nkunku appears to be a no-brainer, as not only would it make strengthen United’s options considerably ahead of Ten Hag’s first year in charge, but it would also be a big blow to Manchester City.
