Manchester United are keen on a deal to sign Sime Vrsaljko from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils are eyeing a move for the Croatia international as they look to bolster their options at right-back ahead of next season.

The same report says that the 26-year-old defender is rated at around £30m as Jose Mourinho finalises his list of transfer targets for this campaign.

According to the same article, the defender has been linked with both Manchester City and Arsenal in the past, but Manchester United are now leading the chase for his signature.

The same story says that Mourinho is keen to bring in some competition for Antonio Valencia at right-back this summer.

Vrsaljko has made four assists in 21 La Liga games for Atletico Madrid this season and he helped them to beat Marseille to win the Europa League on Wednesday night.

Manchester United are likely to be on the lookout for a number of signings this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next term.

The Red Devils ended up in second place this season in their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2012.
