ESPN add that the Red Devils were one of the sides interested in Lemar after his breakout 2016/17 season with Monaco, the ace left the French giants a year later in a €70m move to Atletico.

Lemar has struggled in Diego Simeone’s system, the ace has only started 13 of his 24 appearances for Atletico across all competitions this season.

The 24-year-old has failed to manage a single goal contribution in these outings.

Lemar has struggled since his big-money move to Atletico Madrid.

One of United’s key needs ahead of next season could be to bolster their options on the wings.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are no longer wide options – with the pair starring in centre-forward roles under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

ESPN add that the France international still has three years remaining on his contract with Atletico, the Red Devils may have to splash the cash for this signing – but it could solve a serious problem for the side.
