Manchester United are reportedly lining up an offer for Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka as they look to find a replacement for Paul Pogba.

Pogba has been linked with an exit from United for a while, and with the Frenchman out of contract in 2022, the Red Devils are keen on bringing in reinforcements this summer.

Goretzka is also out of contract next year and is yet to agree a new deal with Bayern, and according to SportBild, via SportWitness, the 26-year-old is ‘irritated’ that talks over a new deal have not continued as promised.

The report claims that Goretzka wants a contract worth €20million but Bayern are only offering between €10m and €12m. And Bild in Germany have claimed that United could swoop in for the German and have offered him salary figures which "beat Bayern's offer".

Le10sport have also reported that Lyon's Houssem Aouar is reportedly also a midfield target for United, but they may face competition from fellow Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Tottenham, who are also keen on the 23-year-old.

United have also been linked with a move for Saul Niguez, with Atletico Madrid looking to offload the Spain international this summer.
