Man United in pole position to sign €25m-rated La Liga midfielder

The Catalan giants are ready to sell midfielder Ivan Rakitic for nearly £17.6m at the end of the campaign, with Red Devils specifically mentioned in the report as being an interested party in the footballer.

Man United are perhaps still a bit light in that department, and particularly with Paul Pogba continuing to be linked with an exit, there could be a void that needs to be filled this summer.

Bruno Fernandes has added more creativity and attacking quality, while an experienced player like Ivan could offer solidity and composure in a deeper role to add balance. Time will tell if United push for a deal, but it looks Croatia international will be on the move.

Elsewhere, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly made an important decision at left-back, as it’s claimed that he will not look for another option in that position as Brandon Williams will be given an opportunity to push Luke Shaw for a starting berth instead.

Williams has impressed when featuring for the senior side this campaign, and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer giving the club’s youth stars a chance since taking charge, Brandon could now lead the likes of Mason Greenwood, Axel Tuanzebe, Angel Gomes, James Garner and Tahith Chong in trying to make the cut long-term in the senior Red Devils squad.
