Italian media outlet Rai Sport, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to make a move to try and sign the 30-year-old France international after missing out on his signature last summer.
According to the same article, Manchester United were keen on signing Matuidi last summer but Juventus ended up beating them to his signature from Paris Saint-Germain.
The same story says that the Italian side do not want to sell the midfielder this summer, but the Red Devils have apparently been in touch with Matuidi’s agent Mino Raiola.
Manchester United are likely to be on the lookout for midfield reinforcements this summer, with Michael Carrick set to retire at the end of the season and Marouane Fellaini’s future at the club unclear.
The Red Devils are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window gives Jose Mourinho the chance to assemble a squad he feels will be able to win the Premier League title next season.
Manchester United are currently second in the table.
