Man United consider move for Bournemouth star Matt Ritchie

Manchester United are believed to be sizing up a shock move for Bournemouth midfielder Matt Ritchie, according to the Metro.

The Scotland international has been one of the club’s more consistent performers since their rise to the Premier League, and now United are said to be keen on bringing him to Old Trafford (via Metro).

A report in The Sun claims that United have sent scouts to keep an eye on his performances and could look to launch a move for his signature during the January transfer window.

Ritchie, who usually features as a left-footed right winger is reportedly exactly the kind of player that manager Louis van Gaal is thought to be keen on bringing to the club (via Metro).

He enjoyed a strong season last year, bagging 15 goals and 17 assists during their promotion campaign from the Championship (via Metro), and so far has chalked up four goals and one assist this term (via WhoScored).
