Manchester United in a three-way tussle for David Brooks
The Welshman has attracted attention following the Cherries’ relegation from the Premier League. He could join a number of stars who have already left the Vitality Stadium this summer.
Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser have joined Newcastle United. They follow Nathan Ake and Aaron Ramsdale, who joined Manchester City and Sheffield United respectively.
Although Bournemouth are keen to keep hold of Brooks, they have placed an asking price of £50million on the Welsh Footballer of the Year.
Brooks is coming off an injury-hit season that saw him make just nine appearances throughout the campaign.
This pales into comparison when compared to his 2018/19 campaign. Brooks enjoyed a brilliant debut season in the top-flight and put up numbers comparable to that of James Maddison.
United will have to contend against both Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City, who are also keen on Brooks.
The Red Devils are still keen on signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho. However, his £108m asking price remains an issue and United could look elsewhere.

While Brooks is a cheaper option to Sancho, it remains to be seen if United will make a move for him.
If a deal does happen, he will be the second Welshman signed by the club in two summers. United brought in Daniel James last summer after a glowing recommendation from Welsh boss Ryan Giggs. (h/t Metro)
