Nathaniel Clyne wants to join Manchester United

Nathaniel Clyne will tell Southampton manager Ronald Koeman that he wants a summer transfer to Manchester United, a action that is likely to be met with a £25m bid according to the Daily Star.

The England international is out of contract at the end of next season and despite Saints management offering him a new deal, he is likely to snub it in favour of a move to Old Trafford.

A source close to Clyne said, “The player has made it known that United are his first choice. The deal is not done yet but it is a clear indication of his thinking.”

If he were to join up with Louis van Gaal and the Red Devils, he would be faced with a reunion with left back Luke Shaw who moved the previous summer for £30m.

The full back is thought to have been on the radar of Manchester United for a number of months now, with Brazil international Rafael reportedly no longer part of the first team plans at the club. This now means a reasonably sized bid could see Clyne plying his trade in the Champions League after all next season, following Southampton’s faltering bid to reach the top four.
