Manchester United have made contact with Marco Verratti’s representatives about the possibility of signing the PSG star this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb is reported that the Red Devils have expressed an interest in signing the 24-year-old Italy international this summer.

The same report says that Manchester United have been keeping tabs on Verratti and that Red Devils scout Jose Mayorga has held talks with Verratti’s entourage about a possible move to Old Trafford.

The story claims that the Red Devils have been scouting the Italian for months ahead of a possible summer transfer move to try and bring him to the Premier League.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Jose Mourinho prepares for his second season in charge at the club.

The Red Devils have made two new acquisitions this summer, having brought in both defender Victor Lindelof and striker Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United are preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after Mourinho led the Red Devils to Europa League glory last season.
