Bryan Mbeumo

Bryan Mbeumo is believed to be attracting interest from the likes of Liverpool And Newcastle, with a summer move away from Brentford looking like a real possibility. He is capable of playing wide and through the middle, which would make him a shrewd signing for United or any other premier league the team wants more depth in attack.

The Cameroon international recently hinted he would be open to leaving Brentford, tell L’Equipe: “I spent five seasons at Brentford in a club that helped me grow and take a step forward, but yes, I want to play in the biggest competitions, in the best clubs. That's when even tempting to see big teams interested in me. We'll see.”

Nicholas Williams

United have already been linked with a potential move for Nico Williams, who is said to be admired by many premier league clubs. He recorded 17 assists for Athletic Bilbao last season, helping them finish fifth in La Liga and win the Copa del Rey to end a 40-year trophy drought.

Williams is believed to have a £51million release clause in his contract, making him an expensive signing for United given the limited budget they are working with. However, he could be worth every penny for the Red Devils if they manage to get the best out of him next season.
