Red Devils are set to hijack rival club’s primary target.
Manchester United are looking to rival Liverpool for Nabil Fekir.
After a little polarising transfer saga season, Lyon’s president has hinted that Manchester United could be set to make a sensational swoop for Liverpool target Nabil Fekir.
Jurgen Klopp appeared set to continue his summer spending with a £53million move for the France international earlier this month.
Eventually the Ligue 1 side to cancelled negotiations with Liverpool in the 11th hour.
The Merseyside club already moved in for Fabinho earlier. It is believed Fekir had agreed a five-year deal worth £140,000-a-week at Anfield.
But it now looks as though Jose Mourinho could also be interested in the French playmaker.
Jean-Michel Aulas said:
“I was with Jose Mourinho the other day. We had long discussions.”
“Personally, I am no longer in discussions with Liverpool. At the moment, we are waiting for France and Nabil to have a fantastic World Cup.”
“It was expected at a certain point for him to go to Liverpool. I gave the green light. It did not happen because things were dragged out too long.”
Fekir was identified as a long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho by Liverpool. But if Man United out of nowhere hijack the deal for the Frenchman, it would undoubtedly torment Liverpool fans.
