Manchester United to 'send scouts' to monitor Amadou Haidara and other transfer rumours

Manchester United‘s reported interest in RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara looks to be heating up.

The Reds are said to be sending scouts to watch the Mali international to get a closer look at their rumoured target.

Ralf Rangnick brought Haidara to RB Leipzig, in light of Naby Keita’s move to Liverpool, and could bring him to Old Trafford after his appointment as interim Manchester United manager.

Newcastle were previously interested in the midfielder but pulled out of a move in the summer.

But it has since come to light that the 23-year-old could have a £33m release clause in his current deal in Germany.

The Daily Mail reports that United officials will be in attendance of Leipzig’s clash with Union Berlin and then their final Champions League group stage match against Manchester City to see if he fits the bill at Old Trafford.

Haidara may be seen as a cheaper alternative to Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips as Manchester United continue their search to strengthen the middle of the park.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are said to plotting moves for Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial and may use Philippe Coutinho as a makeweight in their transfer ambitions, according to SPORT.

The former Liverpool playmaker arrived at the Nou Camp in 2018 but has suffered a torrid time in La Liga as he has been plagued with injuries and struggled to cement a place in the side.

Coutinho enjoyed a temporary spell away from Spain at Bayern Munich, where he beat his parent club en route to Champions League glory with Hansi Flick’s side.

The Cules’ financial strife is no secret, as they look to balance the books in light of the restraints in Spain, with the Brazilian among the higher earners after his £142m move.

It comes after Xavi highlighted Ferran Torres as a target for his side but two Manchester United alternatives, Cavani and Martial, have emerged.

With their struggles financially, they will be unable to pay outright for players meaning Coutinho could be used as a bargaining chip.
