Red Devils have joined cross-town rivals Man City with interest in exciting Real Sociedad forward Mikel Oyarzabal.

Man United manager is on the hunt for a quality wide option this summer, with Oyarzabal a cheaper option than Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho.

It’s claimed that Man United are confident of landing the Spain international for no more than €50m, which means they’re sure they can land the ace for at least €20m lower than his release clause.

Of course, Man City are also in the market to bolster in this position after losing Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich, it’s suggested that United entering the race could cause them to step up their efforts.

Real Sociedad sit 7th in La Liga, with the Basque outfit still capable of securing Europa League qualification despite a difficult final two matches of the campaign.

Spain international has been in inspired form for the side this campaign, contributing 10 goals and 11 assists in 35 La Liga games this term. The Spanish attacker is predominantly used as a left-winger but has some experience of playing on the opposite flank.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer transitioning Anthony Martial into a centre-forward, with Marcus Rashford also occasionally deployed down the middle, Man United need another quality option on the wings.
