According to Duncan Castles in the Daily Record, Manchester United are weighing up a move for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, after failing to tempt Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo with a move to Old Trafford.
Lemar, 21, has been linked with Arsenal over the course of the summer window, yet recent reports suggest that Mourinho has his eye on the young talent.
The winger has a price tag of €60m, which, when compared to the fees paid for some of the world’s top talents, is hardly surprising.
Despite this, United fans see Anthony Martial having a huge future at the club, and if Lemar were to come, it would surely threaten his place on that left wing.
Mourinho has been reportedly chasing Ivan Perisic of Internazionale, yet after failing to agree on a price for the Croatian midfielder, may be forced to turn towards Lemar.
