Manchester United will target a deal for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti after wrapping up a move to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on a deal to bring the Italy midfielder to Old Trafford this summer as he looks to significantly bolster his squad.

The same story says that Manchester United are close to tying up a deal to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk for a fee of around £52m.

And the Red Devils will look to bring in Verratti as their second summer signing, according to the same story.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for midfield reinforcements this summer after Michael Carrick retired at the end of the season.

According to the same story, Manchester United have been “encouraged” about the availability of Verratti this summer as they look to strengthen their squad significantly.

Manchester United are aiming to build a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season after the Red Devils ended up in second place in the table last term.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since 2013.
