SunSport quoting Mundo Deportivo claims that the Red Devils have made contact with the former Rivers Angels star who helped Barca win their sixth La Liga Women’s title.

The Super Falcons star could however be returning to English football for the first time since 2017 after parting ways with Arsenal ladies.

Apart from Oshoala, the Red Devils are also looking to lure Jess Sigsworth away from Leicester City in a bid to fortify their attack for competition.

Despite having a year left on her contract with the Catalans, Asisat was said to have considered a summer exit from the club.

Mundo Deportivo added that the LaLiga champs might be considering offers for the Nigeria star who was named the Best African Woman Player of the Decade by the International Federation of Football History.
