Man Utd are looking to sign the 14-goal winger ahead of Arsenal, Newcastle and PSG as the transfer race heats up

MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly looking to lure Moussa Diaby to Old Trafford ahead of a potential move to Premier League rivals.

Moussa Diaby has been the subject of a lot of attention this season and looks set to have a decision to make in the summer.

The Bayer Leverkusen winger has netted 14 goals and 11 assists for Xabi Alonso’s side in all competitions this season, drawing a lot of interest.

According to the Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenbergthe Frenchman is now a target for Manchester United.

However, it is reported that the next step in Diaby’s move to Man Utd would depend on club ownership.

The Red Devils are in the midst of a bidding war between Sheikh Jassim and Jim Ratcliffe, both of whom want to buy the club from the Glazer family.

Man Utd have only just added talented wingers to their squad when they signed Antony for £85.5m last summer and Sancho the season before for £73m.

Regardless, it seems like Erik ten Hag is interested in adding attacking talent to his squad as Champions League spots are all but guaranteed for them.

Diaby has also been linked with moves to Arsenal, PSG and Newcastle United.

Now that Newcastle have secured Champions League football, they could be a more attractive offshoot for the 23-year-old, however their interest has been said to have not increased in recent months.


Rumor has it that Leverkusen are asking for a transfer fee of between 70 and 80 million euros to free Diaby from his hands.

The tricky winger’s contract doesn’t expire until 2025 and Alonso reportedly considers him an important player.

Arsenal have long been linked with Diaby but with priorities appearing to be in the middle this summer and Bukayo Saka signing a new long-term deal, the Gunners could find it difficult to finalize the deal.
