The news source have mentioned that the Old Trafford club are closely monitoring the player, who is also on the radar of Brentford and Aston Villa in England.

Diao is a pacy winger, who can effectively play on either flank and so far, he has netted 4 goals in 11 starts for the senior Betis side.

The 18-year-old sensation’s current deal with the La Liga club will expire in 2027 and as per Mucho Deporte, it contains a release clause of £25.8million (30 million euros).

This season, Antony has not scored a single goal in 12 Premier League appearances for Man Utd. Garnacho has found the net once in 14 league games.

On the other hand, Rashford, who netted 30 goals in all competitions last term, has only netted 2 goals in 15 PL games thus far.

Jadon Sancho and manager, Erik ten Hag, have personal problems that may see the England international leave.

So, the flanks must be improved on immediate basis next month but the question is, should Man Utd pay £25.8million to lure an inexperienced teenager in the form of Assane Diao?
