Manchester United need to improve their attacking midfield and they are looking to sign French international Nabil Fekir, who has been heavily linked with Liverpool and the Reds had even agreed a fee worth €60million (The Guardian).
Lyon officially ended negotiations with the Merseysiders and Aulas recently confirmed that other clubs are interested in the Les Bleus playmaker (Mirror Sport): He said:
“He is an exceptional player, he keeps the ball in little space and has an incredible talent. The fact that things didn’t conclude with Liverpool and it didn’t happen in that timeframe has peaked the interest of a lot of other clubs – Real Madrid, but not just Real Madrid and their new trainer.”

The Ligue 1 club’s president also confirmed that he had held discussions with Man United boss Jose Mourinho over the transfer of Fekir (The Sun).
As per the latest update provided by Le Progres, talks with Liverpool broke down because the Anfield club decided to lower the asking price by €5million.
The renowned French outlet have further stated that at the moment, there are many offers on the table for the 24-year-old star and the latest move has been made by Manchester United.
Last season, Fekir featured in 30 league games for his hometown club, scored 18 goals and provided 7 assists. Is he good enough to improve Mourinho’s attack?
