United given hope over David Brooks

The path for Manchester United to sign David Brooks may have cleared, with Leicester City’s interest waning in the Bournemouth winger.

MEN Sport understand the Foxes’ loan capture of Roma winger Cengiz Under has shifted their priorities in the transfer window. Brendan Rodgers’ side decided a season-long loan deal for the Turkish wide man represented better value than a swoop for Brooks, who Bournemouth value at £40million.

Jadon Sancho remains United’s top target as they search for a possible three further deals in this summer window. A right-winger, even if Sancho cannot be acquired, is the priority for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

And while they have considered a move for Brooks, who started Bournemouth’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough at the weekend, no official bid has yet been lodged.

The Leicester situation could still represent a boost for United, however, if they decide to move for the Wales international.
