Paul Pogba's future at Old Trafford is also undecided and it is believed United would want to sign a world-class player for the defensive midfield position.

France international Eduardo Camavinga has been linked with the Premier League club as his buy-out clause is just £34million.

United could also look towards the direction of Brighton Yves Bissouma who has had vast Premier League experience in his last two seasons.

Also on the cards is West Ham captain Declan Rice who at age 22 has become a regular for club and country.

Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez is also a prospect for the role at Old Trafford as the vastly experienced Spanish star would add more spice into the team.

United fans have also told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to look towards the direction of Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi who has amazing tackling stats in the last four years in the English top-flight division, Soccernet.

Souness unimpressed with Pogba's opening day assist

Meanwhile, had earlier reported that Graeme Souness is not too impressed with Paul Pogba's five-star showing during Man United's 5-1 thrashing of Leeds United in a Premier League, Sport Bible, Sky Sports.

The embattled French midfielder was instrumental to the Red Devils success against Leeds as he was involved in four out of the five goals scored by his teammates.

The 28-year-old was unlucky not to have scored earlier in the game after his step-over deceived Leeds keeper Illan Meslier but hit the side-netting.
