Man Utd have been joined by Everton and Southampton in enquiring about Salisu, who has a bargain release clause of just £10.8million, according to the Daily Mail.

United could do well to strengthen their defence without spending a fortune this summer, with many clubs likely to be hit by the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

While many Red Devils fans may have preferred to see their club chasing bigger names in defence, Salisu looks a fine prospect and that release clause seems easily affordable for a club of their size.

Still, the Ghanaian starlet himself may be tempted to start off with a move to someone like Everton or Southampton, with both these teams looking like ideal stepping stone clubs.

Salisu may find he gets more chances to play at one of those teams, which could then pave the way for a bigger move to somewhere like Old Trafford at a later date.
