As a potential trade option to Jadon Sancho, MANCHESTER UNITED is keeping tabs on Leicester winger Harvey Barnes – SunSport Reports.
So far the 22-year-old attacker has had an outstanding season and made his debut for England in October in a 3-0 victory over Wales.
The scouting department of the Red Devils were impressed with the ace of the Foxes and watched him closely.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also a Barnes fan, SunSport knows and has been keeping a close eye on his success.
And United may be tempted to make a bid, with Borussia Dortmund still refusing to reduce Sancho’s £ 100m-plus asking price.
Last summer, Solskjaer made the former Manchester City winger his No1 goal, but the German giants stood strong and retained their man.
Leicester value Barnes at about £ 60m is known, but in January it will reject any approaches for one of their star players.
He played in the Foxes alongside Harry Maguire, and he is also a fan of his Three Lions and the talent of a former club teammate.
When the transfer window opens, United has about £ 30m to invest, plus any profits gained from player sales and loan deals.
Before going on loan to MK Dons, Barnsley, and West Brom, Barnes broke into the Leicester first-team in 2016.
He also has made the Foxes 65 league appearances and scored ten times, thus working his way through the youth teams of England.
