Inter Milan midfielder NicoloBarella is reportedly one of the midfield targets for Premier League club Manchester United. FC Inter News confirmed the Red Devils interest in Barella who won the Italian Serie A title with the Nerazzuri last season before helping Italy to emerge as Euro 2020 winners at the weekend.

Manchester United have focused on the signings of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in recent weeks. It has been revealed that attention will turn to the signing of a central midfielder completely after the club is done with the transfers of winger Sancho and defender Varane.

England international Sancho is a Manchester United player though an official statement is expected from the club later this week to this effect. He has undergone his medical after Manchester United agreed a £73m deal with Borussia Dortmund for his services. German Bundesliga club Dortmund have already identified former Arsenal player DonyellMalen as the man to replace Sancho in their squad. Dutchman Malen is expected to join Dortmund from PSV Eindhoven of the Dutch Eredivisie for around €30m in the coming days.

On Varane, the French defender could follow Sancho to Manchester United after Real Madrid gave the Red Devils the permission to speak to the ex-Lens centre back in a bid to agree personal terms with the player. Real Madrid and Manchester United are yet to open talks on the transfer fee required to take French international Varane to the Theatre of Dreams.

The quest to sign a central midfielder will be the main focus for Manchester United once they are able to get the Sancho and Varane deals over the line. Apart from 24-year-old Inter Milan star Barella, the other midfield targets are West Ham United player Declan Rice and young Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga. The Red Devils have also been linked with Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez who’s closing in on a move to Barcelona in a swap deal that will see Frenchman Antoine Griezmann move in the other direction.
