Manchester United are reportedly lining up a summer move for Monaco midfielder Joao Moutinho, according to the Metro website.
Monaco’s Portuguese midfielder is set to be offloaded as they try to reduce their wage bill.
The French giants are trying to cut costs and are hoping that United will take up the option of taking his £50,000-a-week wages off their hands.
The Red Devils are looking to bolster their midfield and Moutinho is seen as a decent signing for many fans.
However, they will face a fight with Zenit, as the Russians are also ready to try and tempt him away from Monaco.
