Man Utd close in on another signing as £8m offer has been made – report

Manchester United sealed a deal for Eric Bailly last week, as Jose Mourinho’s overhaul of the squad looks set to continue. The self-proclaimed Special One will have big money at his disposal, and he is looking to make another signing shortly.

That’s according to RMC Sport in France, who say that Manchester United have tabled a ‘concrete offer’ for Bordeaux attacking midfielder, Adam Ounas.

That offer is reported to be worth £8million (€10m), but they aren’t alone in the pursuit of the 19-year-old, with Stoke City, Southampton and Napoli all believed to be in the running as well.

In a poor campaign, Ounas has been the shining light for Bordeaux in Ligue 1, and he really emerged as a future world star. In his 23 outings for the French club, Ounas found the back of the net five times and added two assists.

As always, when investing in youth it will be a gamble as the player may not fulfill that potential. Memphis Depay is a prime example of that.
