MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly in a battle with Liverpool over the signing of Benfica striker Darwin Nunez.
United are also reportedly ‘favorites’ to sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid this summer.
Meanwhile, the club have received a boost in their pursuit of Frenkie de Jong.
The Dutchman is said to have given the club “private assurances” that he would like to join.
The biggest stumbling block to a move is said to be Barcelona, who are asking for a £68million fee.
And de Jong may not be the only midfielder to join as United are reportedly ready to continue their “long-held” interest in Christian Eriksen now that he is available on a free transfer.
Meanwhile, Jude Bellingham is said to be high on the Red Devils’ wish list, but a deal with Dortmund is more likely to materialize next summer.
