Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be handed the funds to drastically overhaul the Red Devils at the end of the season.

And with Ander Herrera expected to leave and Nemanja Matic now in his 30’s, a new central midfielder is most certainly going to be on the Norwegian’s shopping list.

Amadou Haidara, who has impressed for RB Leipzig since joining the club in December, is a relatively unknown quantity outside of Germany.

But the 21-year-old Mali international, seen as Naby Keita’s successor at the Red Bull Arena Leipzig, has admitted he would be more than open to a move to United.

“I like Manchester United very much and watch as many games as possible,” Haidara told Bild.

“I dream of playing there.

“But at the moment I am very satisfied with RB Leipzig.

“Our big goal is to get into the Champions League.”

Another player who has recently been linked with a move to United is PSG right-back Thomas Meunier.

The Belgian has admitted that he is a Red Devils supporter on more than one occasion.

And it appears a dream move could finally materialise in the summer, as Solskjaer searches for a new right-back.

Speaking back in 2017, Meunier first revealed his United passion.

“Manchester,” he replied when quizzed over which team he plays with on FIFA.

“The real one, Man United.

“Because I’ve always been a fan.”

However, speaking recently, Meunier remained coy over his future.

“I still have 1 year on my contract here,” he told Lavenir Sport.

“What good would it do me to kick up a fuss?

“I have done less in matches, but I continue to give everything in training.”
