Vazquez, 29, joined Real Madrid’s youth academy in 2007 and after making his senior first-team debut during the 2010-11 season, the Spaniard has gone on to feature in 218 matches in all competitions.

The experienced wide-man who can operate as a right winger but has more recently reinvented himself as a very good right-back has enjoyed a hugely successful time in Madrid.

The 29-year-old boasts an impressive trophy haul comprising of 11 major titles, including three Champions League.

However, despite spending 13-years with his boyhood club, recent reports have suggested that the talented attacker could be set for a shock move away from the Santiago Bernabéu.

According to Real Madrid based outlet Defensa Central, Vazquez has emerged as a shock transfer target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United.

The outlet claim that Solskjaer is keen to bring in the Real Madrid wide-man with a view to make the Spaniard part of his long-term project whilst also providing necessary cover for Wan-Bissaka.

Defensa Central claim that the Red Devils are preparing to offer Real Madrid €15m for Vazquez, whose contract also expires next summer.

    Why does the United hierarchy feel the need to sign Vasquez or any other right back? Are they going to allow Solskjaer to destroy young Brandon Williams without giving him a fair crack at RIGHT back? This is so unfair. Seems the club has money to indulge Solskjaer’s whims but no money to sign a left footed centre back. Solskjaer has also destroyed the career of Diogo Dalot and it seems this is purely because Morinho signed Dalot.

      Brandon Williams is a left back
