Manchester United are keeping tabs on Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks and could move for the youngster this summer – though will need to fork out as much as £50million.

Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is plotting a major rebuild of Uniteds squad with a particular focus on signing young, British players with a connection to United.

And according to The Sun, that has led United to Brooks – who only joined Bournemouth a year ago in a £11.5m deal – with Solskjaer adding him to his transfer wishlist.

The 21-year-old is a boyhood United fan, even though he spent time in rivals Citys academy, and has enjoyed a real breakout campaign in the Premier League.

The Welshman – who plays alongside another United summer signing, Daniel James, at international level – netted seven goals in his first top-flight campaign as well as laying on five assists.

He impressed with his work rate and versatility – playing out wide, behind the frontman and in a deeper midfield role – and Bournemouth missed him badly when he was injured in February.

However, his excellent form saw him sign a new long-term contract and Bournemouth have no intention of letting him leave.
