Manchester United are keen on a deal to sign Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri for £12m, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a deal to bring the Switzerland international to Old Trafford this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his midfielder options ahead of next season.

The same report says that Liverpool FC have been linked with a move for Shaqiri but they could now face competition from Manchester United.

Shaqiri is said to be set for a £12m move away from Stoke after the Potters were relegated from the Premier League last season.

According to the same story, Mourinho followed Shaqiri’s performances closely at the World Cup in Russia and told friends how impressed he was by the Swiss star’s displays.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils have already tied up deals for both Diogo Dalot and Fred as Mourinho prepares for his third campaign in charge of the Old Trafford outfit.
