Man Utd looking to swoop in to land 14-goal winger ahead of Arsenal, Newcastle and PSG as transfer race hots up
MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly looking to pinch Moussa Diaby from under the noses of their Premier League rivals.
Moussa Diaby has been the object of much attention this season and appears to have a decision to make in the summer.
Moussa Diaby has made nine appearances for the French national team
The Bayer Leverkusen winger has managed 14 goals and 11 assists in all competitions for Xabi Alonso’s side this campaign and has attracted a lot of interest as a result.
According to Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg, the Frenchman is now a target for Manchester United.
However it is reported that the next step in any move for Diaby to join the Man Utd would depend on the ownership at the club.
The Red Devils are in the midst of a bidding war between Sheikh Jassim and Jim Ratcliffe who both want to purchase the club off the Glazer family.
Man Utd only just added talented wingers to their roster when they brought in Antony last summer for £85.5million and Jadon Sancho the season before for £73million.
Regardless it would appear Erik ten Hag is keen to add attacking talent to his squad as they look all but guaranteed to finish in the Champions League places.
Diaby has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, PSG and Newcastle United.
With Newcastle now securing Champions League football they could be a more attractive outlet for the 23-year-old, however it has been said that their interest has not advanced in recent months.

Leverkusen are rumoured to be demanding a of around £70m to pry Diaby out of their hands.
The tricky winger’s contract isn’t due to expire until 2025 and he is supposedly considered an important player by Alonso.
Arsenal have been linked with Diaby for a long time, but with priorities seemingly lying in midfield this summer as well as Bukayo Saka signing a new long-term contract it may be a difficult deal for the Gunners to complete.
