Manchester United will reportedly try to secure services of Everton midfield destroyer Idrissa Gueye in the summer.

The Red Devils midfielder Ander Herrera has confirmed on Saturday that his time at Old Trafford has came to the end and will leave the team on a free transfer after the end of the 2018/19 season, while Paul Pogba continues to be rumoured with a switch to La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Man Utd also did not replace Fellaini who left the club in January, meaning that the English giants are expected to secure services of a new midfielder in the summer and departure of Hererra has made it clear that signing a quality midfielder will be their no.1 option in the upcoming transfer window.

Everton’s Gueye was heavily linked with a switch to PSG during the January transfer window, however, according to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils are planning to make a £40m bid for his signature.

The same sources has suggested that the Red Devils are also believed to be closing in on a deal for £15m swoop for Swansea City forward Daniel James.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have reportedly identified West Ham United defensive midfielder Declan Rice as a priority during the summer transfer window.

Newly-appointed head-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to be provided with a significant transfer budget for the next campaign and the North-West giants are believed to be keen on to strengthen their offensive end.

According to Independent Ireland, the Red Devils are prepared to pay big money to secure the services of the West Ham United prospect who has been one of the most talented player in England.
