Manchester United are reportedly set to make a move for highly rated AC Milan midfielder Frank Kessie next summer, should Paul Pogba depart on a free. Pogba’s current deal expires at the end of June meaning he can negotiate with other clubs from January onwards.
The 28-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season with United, which has seen him provide no fewer than seven Premier League assists already.
However, the Frenchman continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Real Madrid, Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG and Juventus being tipped as potential destinations.
And now the Red Devils looked as if they have lined up an ideal replacement for Pogba, with Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reporting that United could move for Kessie, who would also be available for nothing.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reported recently that the Ivory Coast midfielder refused to sign a new deal with the Italian giants, leading to further speculation about his future.
