Transfer news: Manchester United plot a swoop for emerging £50m PL star

Man United targeting Bournemouth star David Brooks

Manchester United are considering a move for Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks, according to The Sun.

However, the Cherries will demand at least £50million for one of their brightest talents, who is also a boyhood fan of the Red Devils, the report understands.

The Welsh midfielder had his breakout season in the Premier League, bagging 7 goals and 5 assists in all competitions. Since his move from Sheffield United last summer, Brooks soon became an integral part of Eddie Howie’s side in quick time, playing more than 30 games.

The 21-year-old has also earned 12 caps for the Wales senior team and he is currently making his impact in Euro qualifiers 2020.

Is Brooks a good option for United?

The Red Devils are currently in need of midfield reinforcements as Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. It would be a mountainous task to fill in the shoes of the French World Cup winner.

Brooks possesses all the qualities to be at the heart of United’s midfield but his price tag looks hefty. A central midfielder by trade, the Welsh prospect enjoys his game in the attacking midfield position. His goalscoring ratio is a testimony to that. As far this season is concerned, Brooks was deployed in an advanced midfield role, mainly on the right flank.

United are also looking to find a long-term successor for Nemanja Matic as he has already entered his 30’s. While options like Scott McTominay and Fred are readily available, the Red Devils are also keeping tabs on Eric Dier and Tanguy Ndombele.
