Manchester United are weighing up a bid to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo Hernandez this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Marca, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in bringing the 22-year-old to Old Trafford in a deal worth around £60m.

According to the same article, Rodrigo was heavily linked with a move to FC Barcelona last summer, but he ended up joining Atletico Madrid from Villarreal.

The same story says that Manchester United are likely to be in the market for a new midfielder this summer as Ander Herrera looks like he could be set to move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The article also claims that Manchester United are willing to pay Rodrigo’s £60m release clause to land him this summer.

The defensive midfielder has been a regular fixture in the Atletico Madrid side this season, scoring two goals in 26 La Liga games.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final showdown against FC Barcelona on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils are looking to try and finish in the top four this season but they currently find themselves sixth in the Premier League table.
