Manchester United are reportedly monitoring Ross Barkley’s situation at Everton, with the club considering making a move for the England midfielder towards the end of the transfer window, according to the Mirror.
United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly a long-time admirer of Barkley, however the Red Devils boss has more urgent priorities this summer, as the former Chelsea boss concentrates on bolstering his squad in pursuit of both the Premier League and Champions League, as per the Mirror.
The Toffees’ £50M asking for the midfielder, as well at the player’s high wage demands, has put off United’s league rivals Spurs and Chelsea in making a move for the playmaker as reported by the Mirror, who scored five and assisted nine in 36 league games last season for Ronald Koeman’s side.
Despite this, Red Devils boss Mourinho will still reportedly be keeping tabs on the midfielder, with the club ready to pounce should the player’s asking price fall to a more realistic price, reports the Mirror.
Should Barkley end up leaving Goodison Park this summer, it’ll interesting to see which side is ready to cough up the money to land the midfielder’s signature.
