Man Utd could sign Jonathan David this summer

Manchester United continue to hold a long-term interest in signing Lille striker Jonathan David this summer, according to Manchester World.

The Red Devils are in the market for a new centre-forward, with Anthony Martial set to leave when his contract expires at the end of the month.

They have recently been linked with Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee. The Dutchman’s contract has a £34 million release clause, but the deal is complicated.

His agent Kia Joorabchian is demanding a hefty £12.5m commission which could rule out a transfer.

David could be signed on a cut-price deal

The Canada international has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time.

He looks certain to leave Lille this summer, considering his contract expires in June next year.

The French outfit have confirmed that he is up for sale and United have the opportunity to land him on a a cut-price deal in the summer transfer window.

David had a superb season with Les Dogues, bagging 26 goals and nine assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.

The 24-year-old is entering the prime phase of his playing career. He would be a quality acquisition to provide competition for places to Rasmus Hojlund.

Transfermarkt values him at £42 million, but given that he is about to enter the last year of his contract, he could be prised away for much less.
