Manchester United have made an enquiry about signing Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht, according to reports in the British media.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in signing the 22-year-old, but that they are not likely to make an official move to sign him this summer.

The same story claims that the Red Devils have made contact with the midfielder’s representatives to sound out the possibility of a move to Old Trafford in the future.

The article says that Anderlecht currently value Dendoncker at around £22m to £31m.

The same story cites sources as saying that a deal is unlikely to happen this summer after the Red Devils wrapped up the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea on Monday.

Manchester United have signed three players so far this summer, after having tied up deals for Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Matic.

Jose Mourinho is now preparing his side for a return to the Champions League next season after the Red Devils won the Europa League last term.
