The 27-year-old looks set to leave Old Trafford this summer, with Ligue 1 champions PSG lurking. The player managed 10 assists and four goals last season, but has failed to settle in England. The Red Devils are set to get just £44 million for the man they spent £59.7 million a year ago.
Losing such a high profile player will mean that manager Louis van Gaal will have to find others to bolster his squad. He has already pinpointed two players who he wants to sign according to the Express.
First of all the 63-year-old is keen to get a replacement for the Argentina international, and Barcelona ace Pedro seems to fit the bill. The Dutchman is looking to pay £20 million for the 27-year-old, despite the Blaugrana aiming to get his full £24 million release clause.
The Spain international has seen his chances at the Nou Camp dwindle in recent times. Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, and Neymar currently hold down the forward positions, while the signing of Arda Turan also won’t help his chances. this could mean a move to Old Trafford will appeal to the player.
