Manchester United are currently fourth in the table but they are not in pole position to earn the final Champions League qualification spot this season.
The Red Devils invested a lot to improve the squad in the summer transfer window but did not reinforce the midfield, which is without doubt their weakest department.
Reports coming from Spain indicate that Man Utd want Aurelien Tchouameni and have already held talks to sign him.
According to a story covered by Sport today (news image provided below), Barcelona are looking to lure the French international but bringing him to the Nou Camp seems like an impossible dream because of the heavy competition.
The Catalan news source have mentioned that the 22-year-old is also on the radar of Real Madrid and the likes of Man Utd and Chelsea have already spoken with the player to hire his services.
However, it is stated that the Les Bleus midfielder, who would cost around 60 million euros (£50million), has not made his final decision as yet.
Man Utd are expected to lose record signing Paul Pogba for nothing (contract expires in June), on the other hand, veteran Nemanja Matic is past his best and will turn 34 in August. The likes of Fred and McTominay are not good enough to bring the title to Old Trafford.
The 20-time English champions do not have a solid play breaker in the squad and Tchouameni, who was a key member of the France’s side that won the Nations League last year, could be a top addition.
In your view, should Man Utd spend £50million to sign him?
