Manchester United have identified Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey as a summer transfer target, as the Red Devils seek to beef up their midfield options.
With the recent uncertainty surrounding the future of Ander Herrera, who could leave on a free transfer to French giants PSG, Manchester United is reportedly set to make a move for the combative midfielder who has a buyout clause set at just over €50 million.
According to sources close to the Ghana International, the player is very keen on a move to Old Trafford as he wants to fulfill his dream of playing in the Premier League.
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solkjaer, confirmed after his appointment as permanent manager, that his side had identified their summer targets, and Thomas Partey is reportedly on the list of possible signings.
Manchester United will be hoping to get the deal done before the start of the African Cup Of Nations(AFCON) where Partey is expected to feature for Ghana.
Partey was strongly linked to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspursa few weeks ago, with interest in the player continues to grow high.
