Manchester United are considering a move for France international Thomas Lemar, according to Duncan Casltes.
After failing to secure a move for Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, the Portuguese boss has been trying to bolster his attacking options with a new winger.
He has been a key figure in AS Monaco’s unexpected run to the last four of the Champions League last season and has been valued at around €60million.
The Ligue 1 champions have been set of keeping hold of the player, especially after he was aggressively pursued by Arsenal.
After being aggressively pursued by Arsenal, he was added to Jose Mourinho’s watchlist, especially after he missed out on a deal for Ivan Perisic.
The Portuguese boss believed Perisic would make the Old Trafford switch but Inter have been playing hardball over a fee and have been set on keeping hold of their star asset.
Lemar would be less expensive in terms of salary and command superior potential resale value as he is still only 21, compared to the 28-year-old.
He scored 14 goals and registered 17 assists in his 55 appearances for Monaco last season and is capable of playing anywhere across the second line of attack.
Mourinho loves his versatile players and Lemar would be no different as he has the potential to be an incredible player, especially as he still has plenty of time ahead.
