The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a deal to sign the 19-year-old USA international as they look to bring the highly-rated midfielder to Old Trafford.

Now, it is being claimed that Manchester United could be prepared to offer Martial to Dortmund as part of a cash-plus-player deal to land Pulisic this summer.

The same report says that Pulisic is rated at around £40m as the Red Devils look to try and conclude a deal to sign the talented teenager this summer.

It is also claimed that the likes of Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC have shown interest in landing the teenager this summer.

Manchester United are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the Red Devils look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.
