But there are plenty of other stars on Ten Hag’s radar.
It’s believed the Red Devils have made a cheeky approach for Real Madrid icon Casemiro, a FIVE-time Champions League winner.
Brighton ace Moises Caicedo is also of interest to United.
That’s after the Red Devils REJECTED the chance to sign him on the cheap just six months ago.
Liverpool are also keen but Brighton have no intention of selling.
