Manchester United make contact with representatives of Alassane Plea
The 27-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season and has notched up 8 goals and 8 assists in 28 games so far this season. With the Bundesliga scheduled to return this week, he could be in line to add to that tally.
His performances have not gone unnoticed, with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur among his known admirers.
In spite of the English football season currently in limbo, the Red Devils have not been inactive. According to the report, they have intensified their efforts to sign the player ahead of next season.
Ed Woodward’s had earlier asserted that the upcoming transfer window will be unlike any we have seen before. Despite his comments, United are keen to add to their attack.
It appears to be the turn of the areas further up this time, with Plea an imposing presence in the attack. His ability to play anywhere along the front-line will be another added bonus.
