Manchester United are reportedly having
conversations regarding a potential move for Borussia Monchengladbach
star Alassane Plea.
Sky Deutschland claims that United chief Ed Woodward has made contact
with the player's representatives to test the water on a potential move
to Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old has directly contributed to 15 goals in 22 Bundesliga
appearances this season, scoring eight times himself and creating seven
more and his form has alerted several clubs across Europe.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also thought to be interested in the forward.
Plea is contracted to Monchengladbach until 2023, with the German outfit valuing the ace at around £21 million.
German outlet Express.de, via the Daily Star, reported last month that United had turned their interest to Plea.
The report stated that the former Nice forward was "among a group of
strikers to be examined" for the 2020-21 campaign with one of those
believed to be Moussa Dembele.
Now though Sky in Germany have backed up those claims regarding Plea,
as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks for a striker for next season.
