Man Utd set to make summer move for Premier League versatile midfielder

By | February 4, 2019

Manchester United are considering a summer move for Bournemouth attacker David Brooks, summer signing from Sheffield United.

The English youngster has been in outstanding form for the Cherries this season, netting six times and registering four assists in 22 Premier League matches.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils have been impressed with the attacker’s displays this season and are eyeing a swoop for the 21-year-old at the end of the 2018-19 season.

David Brooks scored one and set up another in Bournemouth’s 4-0 victory over Chelsea in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

However, the nine-time Wales international is now facing up to five weeks on the sidelines with an ankle injury, potentially missing the next six Premier League fixtures.

David Brooks plays as attacking midfielder but can operate as for right winger also, and it remains to be seen if Manchester United will sign the youngster who will cost in the region of £30 million if he returns to the same form after the injury.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are ready to hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer £200 million in the summer transfer window if the Norwegian manages to secure the job on the permanent basis.
