The England international is looking increasingly likely to walk away from City this summer after turning down offers of a new contract at the Etihad Stadium, but it has looked like either the Emirates Stadium or Anfield would be his next destination.

However, it could be that Milner will be persuaded to make the extremely controversial move across Manchester and join Louis van Gaal’s squad at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are believed to be on the lookout for new signings in the middle of the park this summer, with big names like Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin Strootman being linked with the club.

According to the Daily Mirror, however, United could turn to the bargain signing of Milner, who would provide experience, quality and versatility to van Gaal’s squad.
