Man United could make Premier League star Mourinho’s next signing – report

Manchester United are pondering a summer transfer bid to sign Dimitri Payet from West Ham United, say reports in France

Manchester United are weighing up a summer transfer bid to sign Dimitri Payet from West Ham United, according to reports in France.

France Football – as reported by Topmercato.com – claim that the Red Devils have not abandoned the idea of making a move for the France international midfielder this summer.

The same story claims that both United and Inter Milan are weighing up offers for the 29-year-old and could table official bids in the coming days.

Payet was hugely impressive in his first season at West Ham United and could be set to command a transfer fee of around £50m, according to the report.

United are currently gearing up for life under new manager Jose Mourinho following his appointment at Old Trafford back in May.

The Red Devils moved quickly to bring in the Portuguese coach as their new boss after their decision to sack Louis van Gaal at the end of last season.
