The France worldwide rocked the Red Devils in the Champions League in 2018, scoring twice as the La Liga giants won 2-0 at Old Trafford.

The state Manchester United "have everything agreed" with Ben Yedder, and whilst interest from PSG and Barca is mentioned, it's then added the forward's destination "with nearly total security" will be England.

It is also being claimed that the likes of PSG and Barcelona have expressed interest in the Frenchman, but according to Sportwitness, the forward's destination "with nearly total security" will be England. The Norwegian has made the decision to move the club's transfer strategy from signing big-name players to young homegrown talents who can develop at Old Trafford.

It is Daily Mail that reports that Manchester United have finally emerged in the pole position to sign the player after three months of showing interest. The Frenchman is expected to arrive at Old Trafford as a replacement to United's current first-choice striker Romelu Lukaku.

They certainly think highly of Mason Greenwood.

The Red Devils haven't won the Premier League title since 2012-13 season, when Sir Alex Ferguson led Manchester United to top flight glory in his final season in charge.

However, he is not the only player on United's radar.

Manchester United fly out to Australia on a pre-season trip in a week's time and the newspapers claim that Solskjaer has told Ed Woodward (Manchester United Executive Vice-Chairman) to make sure Longstaff if signed in time to make the trip.

The 24-year-old, who now plays for Primeira Liga side Sporting CP, had a brilliant 2018-19 season as he also earned the title of "free-scoring" midfielder, thanks to his 32 goals from 53 appearances across competitions.

But, when Mourinho took over, he was shunted to the wing. He would be well suited to playing alongside Marcus Rashford, and can operate from out wide when required.
