Man United ready to make bid for Germany playmaker – report

Manchester United are being linked with a big-money bid to bring Julian Draxler to Old Trafford

Manchester United have turned their attentions towards a summer bid to lure Julian Draxler to Old Trafford, according to reports.

Mourinho is working hard on revamping his United squad as he prepares for his first season in charge at the club.

The Portuguese coach has already moved quickly to bolster his defensive options, by signing Eric Bailly from Villarreal last week.

The Red Devils continue to be linked with a host of new players as Mourinho prepares his squad for next season.

United are thought to be keen on signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, however, the Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils are also interested in bringing playmaker Draxler to Old Trafford.

Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past but United are now said to be the Premier League front-runners to secure his signature.
