Manchester United are plotting a move to try and sign Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish newspaper AS, as reported by the Manchester Evening News, is claiming that the midfielder is on the radar of the Red Devils this year and that he could be tempted by a move to Old Trafford.

The same report says that Manchester United are closely monitoring the midfielder’s situation at the Bernabeu along with Juventus, Inter Milan and Tottenham.

The 23-year-old has found first-team opportunities at the Spanish club hard to come by this season, with the midfielder having only started one La Liga game so far this term.

The Croatia international has notched up two assists for his team-mates in all competitions for Real Madrid so far this season.

Manchester United are likely to be linked with a number of players this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to assemble a team genuinely capable of winning the title next season.

The Red Devils will return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Newcastle United.

Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal for the Red Devils on Saturday as he helped to fire Manchester United to a 2-0 win over Huddersfield.
