Manchester United know they need a new forward this summer.

Cristiano Ronaldo is approaching the end of his career, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford haven’t kicked on and Jadon Sancho is yet to live up to expectations following his £73million move from Borussia Dortmund last year.

Mason Greenwood remains unavailable, too, while Edinson Cavani has left the club after two years on their books.

With that being the case, Sport now say United have moved in with a bid for Leeds’ Raphinha – who scored 11 Premier League goals from 35 appearances in the competition last term.

While the amount they’ve offered isn’t specified, it’s claimed it’s actually higher than what Barcelona have offered Leeds.

But though United are pushing to land the Brazil international, Barcelona are still frontrunners in the race for his signature.
