MANCHESTER UNITED are battling with Liverpool for the signature of Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, according to reports.
United are also reportedly ‘favourites’ to sign Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio this summer.
Meanwhile, the club have received a boost in their pursuit of Frenkie de Jong.
It is claimed that the Dutchman has given the club “private assurances” he is keen to join.
The main stumbling block to a move is said to be Barcelona demanding a £68m fee.
And De Jong may not be the only midfielder incoming, with United reportedly ready to pursue their “long held” interest in Christian Eriksen now he is available on a free transfer.
Meanwhile, Jude Bellingham is said to be top of the Red Devils’ wish list, but a deal with Dortmund is more likely to happen next summer.
