Manchester United continue to be linked with names aplenty in a vital transfer window – although to this point only one player has been signed.
In an exclusive from The Sun last night, a new name was thrown into the ring. Apparently, the Red Devils are ‘tracking’ AFC Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks, with the boyhood United fan on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wishlist.
Understandably, Bournemouth do not want to sell one of their key men and would demand at least £50million to even consider parting with the mega-talented 21-year-old.
Brooks only joined The Cherries last summer in an £11.5million move from Sheffield United, but he performed so well that a new long-term deal was given to him back in March – meaning Bournemouth are under no pressure whatsoever to sell.
United have lacked that creativity from midfield and Brooks has been a real spark for Bournemouth in that regard. He’s scored some ridiculously good goals over the last twelve months – which has earned him Wales call-ups in the process.
There’s no doubt that the youngster would improve United’s squad massively, but at this point, it only looks like interest from the Old Trafford club rather than an actual bid.
As always, we’ll keep you updated with what’s going on should we hear anything further on Brooks.
